12-13-93 San Diego Sports Arena, San Diego, Ca. (Mon)
1: Stranger, Ramble On, Same Thing, B. E. Women, Broken Arrow, Easy Answers> Half Step
2: Lucy In The Sky, Woman Smarter, Way To Go, Eyes> Drumz> Last Time> Days Between> Throwing Stones E: Liberty


1st Set
Stranger, always a good way to get acquainted with a show. May a recommend a "W" formation on your graphic equalizer to highlight Jerry. Luckily, Vince is not high in the mix... which is a problem sometimes as we all know. Phil is on. If anything I have a hard time hearing Bob's guitar. Jer goes wild on the solo, which is a great sign this early... will he maintain? Vince, well, he manages to cheese away.
Ramble On was a surprise at this position in the setlist. Jerry's voice starts to crack. At least his guitar is intact if his voice isn't. We get early MIDI, and during the jam there is a nice passage of it actually.
Same Thing starts off slow and sultry... the antithesis of a feminist song. We should ask Rush Limbaugh to cover this song someday... Good timing throughout the song makes it a keeper... and is making me reconsider my general distaste for slow blues.
BEW with her dress up! Solid intro gets the energy levels going again. Jerry's voice has made a minor recovery, cool. This is a song that needs it. The guitar is crisp and clean, and the drummers and Phil and Bobby... hell, and Vince... all on. This is great! Features a great Jer solo, with that crispy almost acoustic sound that dominates in late 93 (started in Autzen? Maybe before that).
Broken Arrow is led by Phil singing as though he had been in a sound tunnel. Timing was key in BEW, and lost completely in this song. After the 1st verse, it is more put together, ironed out so to speak. Nice. Bob puts in some great work, but Jerry is the key of course.
Easy Answers gets no love, but from I and a few fellow 93 fans. A bit of cheese vince in response to the lyrics, just look the other way... hey. Phil is all over this one. Vince decides to layer on more cheese while Garcia lays down the solo. Nice reverb and Bob as well. A solid effort, for sure... Swami supposed it might be the best ever... hard to tell... any experts out there? ... Crickets.
1/2 Step CLOSES THE SET! Get out of here! Wow! Perfect. Energy is not very high for 93. Vinny makes up for all previous sins with a great solo.
Jerry continues to dominate though, as from the days of yore... which came shortly before the golden days (or was it after?).

2nd Set
LSD is the choice, picked out from the tuning. Too bad they never really nailed this classic. Not that it was bad, but Studio Beatles version is just perfect... Jerry croning away doesn't do it for me. This is a better version though. His guitar gets a somewhat sweet solo in the outro.
Women R Smarter, to completely bust my groove. Nice Jerry solo in it though. Not a bad version.
Way To Go Home is not a song that I review much, despite being a fan of this era. I also like the early WTGHs, because Jerry was still into them. Decent enough Jerome...
Eyes starts off slowly... but the music is fine and sweet. A fine aged wine. Nice 1st verse jam. It goes up and up as though it were a nut thatch. Really nicely done. An unsung version you won't here about elsewhere, but does what Eyes should do. The 2nd verse jams starts off strong, as though the chorus were an interlude quickly cast aside. Vince elevates it as he often does, with lofty tones. The 2nd verse jam is actually led mainly by Vince, then Jer makes a nice comeback. Vince trills along behind him... But, honestly, the 1st verse was more fulfilling (lower expectations?). Then we get to the "drums jam" of eyes. 'Tis short, but sweet.
Drums>Space
Last Time comes rollicking out of space! Classic version.. Seriously. Some say the best ever. I haven't been keeping tabs. I think this is might be the longest version...
Days Between always fills the ballad slot perfectly. The performance is solid. Since I love this song, i will not get overly sentimental... just to say, the solo/outro is beautiful, with everyone in their lane (so to speak). Jerry and Phil make the outro, with a great Vinnny outro fill.
Throwing Stones is a great call here. As per the show, Jerry delivers when he is called upon. Jerry dominates the TS... so, to answer the first set question.... no, he did not run out of steam.
Liberty is the encore, which surprised me, not expecting an encore after T Stones to be honest. Great encore song. REMEMBER> ITS ALL ABOUT AMERICA!!!

I think you should throw a snit since you have been ignored. I have not listened, but the selection in the 2nd set turns me off. Not a fan of Broken Arrow or Easy Answers either.

Instead, I will just rain "Death from Above" on you all...
Did someone say "Broken Arrow"???

I've heard some of this show, and enjoy parts of it. Lucy, Women, Way to Go is a brutal set two opening trifecta, in my opinion.

The Grateful Dead could not really pull off the Beatles. Rain might be the only exception.....
