Half-Step, sound quality leaves something to be desiredÖ
MAMU steps up the energy nicelyÖ I wonder if Billy was looking forward to the return of Mickey?
FOTD is fun, but the SQ is really an issue still.
It Must Have Been the Roses, where Keith should be on the organ but isnít.
El Paso sets off at a nice gallop, Billy is unstoppable.
Loose Lucy, probably one of the better versions.
Scarlet is long, but rather uneventful, kind of never goes anywhere. Decent music for just chilling and having on in the background.
To Lay May Down, a nice, somber version in a technically tight show, itís enjoyable.
Mama Tried they broke this out for the first time since 7/31/1971? I could have sworn I heard it in 72-4 before this? Oh well, itís a decent version, but not nearly as fast and fun as it can be.
Eyes is funky, with nice jam segments. I would not say it is near the best, even of the year. It does have a long Slipknot portion that is enjoyable.
Big River closes out the set nicely, a last minute injection of much needed energy.
Seastones has some percussion that keeps it somewhat interesting. This is a nice extra treat. However, once the drummer goes away, itís somewhat boring.
UJB. Great Lincolnís Beard, the UJB hits the spot! Jerry is superb, while Phil, Bob and Billy really push it out there!
Big RR, Garcia taking new approaches in the intro does make this fun.
Race is On
Tomorrow is Forever, last one they ever did. I know some really loved this, including Jerry.
Mexicali Blues, another great version with Jerry really into it.
Dire Wolf is too slow.
Sugar Magnolia>Heís Gone>Truckiní Jam>Caution Jam>Drums>Jam>Truckiní>Black Peter
The meat sequence starts with a decent Sugar Mags, it transitions on a dime into a laid back Gone, with a long vocal sequence before the outro, which is slow and drawn out. Truckiní is the answer, and they start into it, but instead of hitting the first verse, they do a head fake and continue jamming, where Phil pushes it to the Caution Jam! The Caution Jam is fun, definitely no stopping on the tracks as Billy goes into hyperdrive. A quick drums is then joined by Jerry in Space. Those who enjoy a slow, really spacey jam will love thisÖ I couldnít wait to get back into Truckiní personally. The explosion build up is fantastic, and the post explosion blues keeps things moving nicely until the soulful transition into Black Peter. The Peter is heartfelt and deliberate.
Sunshine Daydream erupts out of a complete stop to close the set.
The first set is technically tight, and it seems like until the extended Slipknot in Eyes they donít really take any risks. The Eyesí energy is decent, but not high. The 2nd set is generally better, more energetic, though there are a couple of duds. Highlights are the UJB and the Caution Jam.
B, not a lot of issues other than the overall dual tracking, which creates an unreal sound unfortunately.
