__________________________________________

Bertha comes out strong, nice SQ to start us off.
Mexicali is brimming with energy, Billy in particular throws some nice drums rolls in. The dog days of summer in the NE, can they maintain for 3.8 hours?
Don’t Ease
BIODTL
Sugaree
has, through the era, been progressing nicely. This version is no exception.
Jack Straw has a short but sweet intro with Jerry throwing in an unusual little dervish.
Eyes blows my doors off! The first verse solo has a screeching Jerry solo. The 2nd verse jam finds yet more energy in this already energetic show. The third verse/outro jam has a Slipknot theme buried in there. This outro jam gets wild and amazing, great stuff, one of the best Eyes out there. A+.
Promised Land
Deal
PITB>Scarlet>PITB

A PITB meat sequence/sandwich to close the 1st set is a nice touch. Once we hit the jam Jerry has a great tone, somewhat “watery”, and easily could drift into… a Tiger. No Tiger. The tempo stays up beat until just after the 7th minute, where it gets more jazz improve style. There’s an awesome break down type of segment to the jam starting just before the 10th minute. 16 minutes in the jam is in a completely different place, which is awesome. Phil starts laying down some powerful notes and it’s fully exploratory verging on space at this point. By 19 in we return to a jazz blues type of fusion jam which verges on funk and is pretty awesome… Scarlet comes right into this jam and turns it fully jazzy. Nice work here, and an especially sweet segue back into PITB’s reprise to close out the awesome set!

Seastones

UJB
has a great intro. 74 was the year where they started to extend the jam segment (not surprisingly). It’s a decent jam, but not earth shattering. Seems like it could never really gather steam until they head into the reprise.
El Paso is perfect.
Black Peter is bluesy and beautiful, you feel this version inside.
Loose Lucy is funky and fun.
Big River is fun as always.
Ship pretty good. Keith wasn’t as prominent as I like, but the mellowness was a nice contrast.
MAMU is great!
Row Jimmy is subtle and cool. I like the organ on this much better than the piano sound.
Sugar Mags>Gone>Truckin>Spanish Jam>TOO>GDTRFB>SSDD
Nice line up for a meat sequence. The Sugar Mag is energetic and full. Out of nowhere, the Gone chords surface where SSDD normally takes off. A bit sloppy, but cool. It’s a good Gone, and the energy goes up a bit when it gets to the outro and transitions directly into the rapid fire opening notes of Truckin’. Bobby blows the lyrics before the "Busted on Bourbon St" and literally says "Whoops!" into the microphone before recovering. Classic Bobbism. It's a fun Truckin, with Bob aptly racheting up the energy before we head into the heady part of the sequence... however, the build up to the explosion slows back down as Jerry goes into Blues mode. We don't actually get the typical explosion, which is somewhat of a bummer, but we do get a cool jam starting at 8 minutes. They go dark and deep rather than doing their typical thing. Phil has a powerful solo with lots of reverberating bass bombs before the drums and guitars start picking back up, having been operating deep in the background. Bobby starts the chords to the beloved Spanish Jam, and Phil maintains the lead for a bit. After about a minute Jerry starts pushing for the lead, yet Phil stays prominent. Phil tries to head into TOO, but it doesn't happen, so he retreats to making really odd, Seastone like noises while Jerry noodles... the jam basically leaves Spain and Bobby now pushes for TOO. Jerry obliges, Phil takes the bait after the rest of the band is fully on the theme. About 5 minutes of TOO and we get to the verse. TOO then heads into space quickly. Considering the previous energy of the show, this meat sequence has been much mellower. The space doesn't stay there long this time! Jerry takes us full bore into the eye of the Tiger! After the short but furious Tiger there's a jazzy jam that ends with Jerry putting the intro notes to GDTRFB into play. The solo has you dancing in your seat or on your feet. They head right into Sunshine Daydream out of the closing notes to end the set.

Encore: US Blues is played in preparation for the coming US Invasion of Western Europe come September '74. Nice and energetic, great closer. Jerry gives the solo his loudest and proudest.
__________________________________________

Performance Summary
3.8 hours of awesome. Ok, throw out the Seastones, like I did... it would have been nice intermission sounds anyhow. The main meat sequence was nice, mainly mellow with moments of greatness... however the PITB>Scarlet>PITB to end the first set would not be denied. Put them together... and drift.

Sound Quality
A for SBD, A+ for Official Release snippets. One of the best SBDs of the day, and COMPLETE.

Note: In the photo posted with the review is not from 8/6/74 it is from 8/4/76. There are two drummers in the photo posted. As you know Mickey wasn't back yet. Nice review Koch! Dick should have included the entire show.

I'll totally correct this on your word.
Good call! I didn't even notice Mickey, but he's surely there!

@ Swami
Yeah, I was only vaguely familiar with it.
The Eyes and PITB Sandwich are pretty great.

Actually I think all of the photos are from 8/4/76. The pic you posted above the review...the guy in the foreground in the yellow T-shirt is (99% sure) is yours truly. My claim to fame in G.D. lore Cool Laughing

I think you're right! I think the website suffered from a dyslexic typo!
