Keith Godchaux's birthday


Bertha starts us off, weird (sarcasm). At one point Billy stops drumming, and sound balance is way off. Can't hear guitars for a while.
Mexicali, sound issues are resolved
Deal was fine, nothing great
BIOTDL is annoying
Row Jimmy is twangy, holds a decent tempo. Major patch in the chorus, not a problem. Not stand out.
Bobby McGee starts to get pretty interesting, nice jamming from Jerome, this is where the set really takes off.
Scarlet is full of energy out of the gate. Great jamming here.
El Paso is pretty much perfect!
Jed features a good tempo and some nice jamming action too. The culmination jam at the end verges on X.
PITB comes in at about 30 minutes. The jamming is pretty cool, with Phil and Bob filling nicely. Jerry takes some extended breaks here and there, perhaps looking for the right sound. He finds it and they get into great noodles and cohesive energy build up. Then it calms down again and gets rather spacier and quieter than I would like. Peaks and valleys.

BEW is rather lifeless and boring
MAMU was fully energetic, bringing set back to life
IMHBTR starts of mellow, doesn't do a lot for me
Jack Straw is mellow
Gone>US Blues starts off pretty good. Goes into a nice but somewhat disjointed jam that goes somewhat spacey, then quickly into silence and a transition to US Blues.
WRS>LIG>Spanish>Eyes>China needs to really come through. WRS is pretty much perfect, with a nice tempo. LIG is solid, tons of noodles from Garcia, definitely going for full rating. Spanish jam comes out of it, with military drum for a while, then a real jazzy swing to it. Out of this jazz comes Eyes of the world, expertly... but almost contradictorily, not a huge fan of the intro, but it was different and coming from a unique place. The jams within the Eyes are solid and entertaining, regaining interest quickly. The jam goes crazy near slipknot like portion, beforehand that is! The transition to China Doll comes out of a chaotic breakdown that sounded for a second like it would go into Wharf Rat. It's pretty chilling, with Keith doing some interesting organ effect in the background. The song lacks a major crashdown.
OMSN is an awful patch! Nice enough.

I've always loved the ending sequence of this show. By the time you get to the end of China Doll, you need it!

Yeah, that's a good way to put it really!
It was quite a meat sequence in there!
