__________________________________________

Shakedown begins with the Brent Hammond effect we call the laser. You get X factor shivers in a couple of places, at the beginning and right before the reprise. CC Rider has a killer Brent solo, and during Jerry's solo it almost sounds like there must be 2 Brents on stage. Loser features a good tempo and an echo effect of Jer's vox. A still maturing Bucket precedes a great BEW where Jerry really nails it. LL>Supp>Deal to close out the set is a trip. During the segue to Supp Brent punctuates Jerry's riffs as Bob and Phil fill the pauses in style. Good team effort. Deal rocks out to close the set.

Scarlet>Fire sets the 2nd set aflame. The segue builds beautifully being pushed by Bobby, who then flubs the chorus. Estimated>Eyes has the nearly perfect Prophet cresting with a powerful conclusion before the noodle breakdown leads into an up-tempo Eyes. The outro jam defines the idea of the "Power Slot". Jerry hints at a return to earth, and Brent cranks the opening notes of Don't Need Love, at which point the stringed instruments leave the stage in unison.

Morning Dew rises hauntingly out of the recesses of a dark space. Jer throws in a series of great flourishes between lyric, and the song has a great climax. Bobby picks up the pieces and starts a raspy Throwing Stones that keeps the energy afloat as we head into a great NFA to finish us off with some X factor to bookend the show.
The Baby Blue encore is not to be missed, with it's peaks and valleys sending you off smartly.

Performance Summary
I can't say there are any stinkers in this show (OK, Never Trust a Women but it's a throwaway), and there are tons of highlights. A good cocktail of energy mixed with beauty throughout. Best ever? No. Needs to be heard? Absolutely.

Sound Quality
A+, balanced levels, no discernible hiss.

A while ago I did a comparison of the Morning Dews from 4/14, 4/20, and 4/26:

These are three of the most fantastic Morning Dews a person could ever hope to hear, captured in the best sounding recordings anyone could possibly hope for. Comparing them is a task woven out of true bliss.

Garcia's voice sounds surprisingly good on all three nights, which helped the overall tour a lot since Weir was battling a head cold seemingly every night.

I'm putting April 20 (yes: 4/20) in third place only because in spite of being transcendently brilliant, it doesn't quite go to the same white-hot peaks the other two arrive at. The other two feature totally blistering finales of astonishing ferocity and brilliance. 4/14 gets spectacular fanning at its crescendo, while 4/26 achieves amazingly exuberant X-factor psychedelic cascades. It's hard to recommend one over the other. Both have powerful playing from Lesh, brilliantly executed middle-jams, and long vocal codas before the final jam. And both have gorgeously unhurried jamming before the build-up to the climax.

I messed up this posting!
Going to edit it.

To your point, I enjoy this Dew the most of the out of Space Dews of this tour.

4/1 also is Dew out of Space, but not as cool as this one, though probably a better show overall.
