________________________________________________

A short tuning brings us into a rollicking Bertha opener, with a solid Brent organ riffs. Phil bopping, and Jerry's guitar kicks in just in time for his crisp solo. Right on to GSET with nice wah from Jer. West LA sleazes its way into the 3rd slot in no need of an attitude adjustment. Phil is taking no prisoners, bombing his way through an escape from LA. Great version. CC Rider is followed by a somewhat surprising Ramble on Rose. Esau comes in gangbusting the rowdy East Coast scene after an impatient "take a step back", quite the rendition. By five minutes into the Bird Song we find ourselves soaring majestically through the tapestry Jerry's notes weave in the dome's rafters, after which it settles down into a nice cruising altitude. To close the set we get Jack Straw, a bit sloppy to my ear, but with a nice energy level. We get some crunchy Jerry mixing in by the end, which helps, and the breakneck speed never stops. At some points that's great, but tension/release as Swami and Strangeloop discussed on a previous song suffers.

Strong intro chords open the 2nd as Shakedown takes form, and after the fabled flub intro, they get down to business. Solid jamming brings itself to a conclusion with a drawn out funk segment that takes us to the vocal "Shakedown in the Round" reprise. The drummers tear us right into Sampson, Bob is first on the uptake while Jerry is getting his tone right. Bobby puts some minor spirals in effect as a finely tuned Jerry runs the show. The final jam is where the juice is, with the drummers maintaining their influence on the song. He's Gone comes in with a strong intro and a nice tempo, key points to me. The middle of the song, which I usually don't care for, is up there with the greats. Garcia is in perfect tone, and Phil is booming around him. A soulful vocal reprise brings us straight to Smokestack, sans Gone outro explosion. After the lyrics the jam goes full on blues. We then get treated to a jam with initial hints of MLB in what would normally be the post-Gone outro. That well known and loved outro does arise after Smokestack, hinting at TOO. An abbreviated Drums leads us to a journey through hell Space which feeds into a icicle Brent into to the Wheel. TOO comes on with full force, and Bob's angry chords rise nicely to the occasion. Jerry steals the show, of course, but the team is full force behind him. Black Peter features a soulful solo and great vox from Jerome. A bit rushed, like nearly all of the normally more tranquil moments of the show. Lovelight rips right out of Peter and assumes a breakneck pace. Jerry solos nicely without going over the top, and you know you've had a good night at this point. It loses a bit of steam before a simple Bobby rant caps it off.

The Encore of Revolution brings the ruckus night to an end after an interesting intro. It's an AUD patch.

Performance Summary
Noodles are the meat, the show is at hyperspeed. This is mainly good, though sprinkle some missed moments in there too. Since I prefer the faster moments, that means this show ranks pretty highly in the Kochman arsenal. It is also a show I cut my Brent Era teeth on... and thus will always be a go to.


Sound Quality
A+ transfer courtesy of Sir Charles Miller. There are minor issues here and there, but that's most likely from the original source.
