Cold Rain & Snow is a great intro, they are gelled together from the first notes. They wouldn't play this again for several months. Great cohesion here.
BIODTL will actually receive some accolades from me for the Jerry solo, perfect.
TLEO features a fine solo with sass building up, Phil is officially on, as is Jerry.
Mexicali is a fierce little Polka defined by Phil, the band is really coming alive.
Sugaree is where energy is added with the aforementioned cohesion, we've got a killer show here!
Box of Rain
El Paso is pretty much perfect, in particular Billy and Jerry
He's Gone is an A+! The outro jam in particular has amazing precision and energy.
China>Rider brings us firmly into X factor during the transition. Before that, in the first solo, the energy is undeniable. Once the perfectly executed segue is into Rider theme there is yet more X factor, definitely an A+ combo here.
Row Jimmy Promised Land opens the second with full rock and roll fury.
The meat sequence won't let you down. It pushes at a nice tempo throughout, while also giving extended jams.
Truckin' starts off rolling, and by the time we get to the explosion, it's sailing downhill with no brakes! The explosion is another X factor moment, with amazing blues scales coming out of it by Jerry. This heads toward a clear TOO theme, and the Phil bombs bring us firmly in. A steady jam ensues, with all team members working hard to push further and further in this focused jam segment. Around 5 minutes in they are in a clearly defined jam, as defined by Phil, but I don't know what it is. Verse starts after 7 minute mark.The post verse is intense, and gets into exploration jamming right away. Then we get into a hyper-speed Tiger! It's not the type that tears your face off, but it leaves a smoking crater for sure! Without ever doing the 2nd verse, typical for the era, TOO goes back into a thematic jam that slowly descends into the opening notes of Eyes of the World! The Eyes is a great ride full of harmony, energy and good vibes. The outro verse jam in particular is quite exploratory. A+ Eyes. Morning Dew is a much more somber choice as the ballad brings us back to the real world. It does so with its classic build up and releases. Extremely solid outro with tons of fanning and rhythm by Bobby that is amazing too. A+.
Sugar Magnolia closes out the set with RnR.
We Bid You Goodnight is a throw away encore.
This is a great show, cohesive from the get go, with energy building rapidly and then being sustained. Highly recommended.
A+, The official release has great sound. The SBD necessitates lowering Phil a bit.
