5/27/93 Cal Expo


Set 1

Shakedown Street
The Same Thing
Dire Wolf
Beat It On Down The Line
High Time
When I Paint My Masterpiece
Cumberland Blues
The Promised Land

Set 2

Picasso Moon ->
Fire On The Mountain ->
Wave To The Wind
Cassidy ->
Uncle John's Band ->
Cassidy ->
Drums ->
Space ->
The Other One ->
Wharf Rat ->
Sugar Magnolia

Encore
Gloria

So I was going to do a 74 but the Dude beat me on one so I'll let his show get some hits. Here is 5/27/93

The SHAKEDOWN opens LARGE. There I said it. Not an all time best, but a mighty fine version that can stand up to stronger earlier versions. There is a remnant of a call and response with Bob and Vince getting into it nicely. Jerry is on here. No missed notes are sloppy fingering, he just nails it. We get a good workout here to open. DIRE WOLF is always welcome in my book, so a standard reading, which we have here, is ok with me. MASTERPIECE is masterpiece, not much to add here. CUMBERLAND!!!!! Ok now were talking, this is turning out to be a good. While a little on the short side they kinda blast their way through this tune like there might be something going on.

What I don't know. Something happened as evidenced by the complete sprint thru PROMISED LAND. They just take off. Bobby is singing it like he is about to run out of breath and if he doesn't get the words out, he might just not be able to say them. Jerry gets a bit ahead of himself as well and something just seeems odd here. Now it looks like this might have been natural as the reviews of this say that the tune rocked. It did, just at warp speed. A monitor problem perhaps? It just sounds off.

Set two starts of with a rockin PICASSO MOON. They hit the peak at the end and the jam is hot and inspired. This leads into a dead end. They wanted to go somewhere and they just couldn't pull it off. So what we have here is failure to >>>>>>>>>>transition properly and we are left with the broken pieces of twigs in which to build a FIRE. The start-up is ugly but then Jerry just takes control about midway though the second jam and nails it. Here is the moment that were missing from the later years. The next few minutes of Fire are raging and may have been the peak of the show. Unforunatly what could have been wasn't and we are left to sit through a WAVE TO THE WIND. Too bad.While this version tries to gather some energy and is not as bad as some other versions, it just can't. I love Phil, but this is why these years are so hit and miss. They get a groove and then they slip a new one in and it doesn't work.


So after all that it is BOB's show from here on out. He might have just got the NOKiA Player of The Show here with this next call. CASSIDY. Finally Bob goes outside the box here and gives us something different. They rock the tune and towards the end you can hear them trying to navigate this song into some other places. Lots has been said about this jam, first time and all that and while I give an A+ for effort, the >>>>>>> is a bit rough. Frankly, I don't care at this point. They actually came to play today and go straight into a nice UNCLE JOHN's. Jerry again is playing good here. This jam ends going back into CASSSIDY with a little bit of an effort, but again it just is not perfect transition. So what CASSIDY>UNCLE JOHN'S>CASSIDY is truly one of a kind. Even if you write this off as a novelty you still have to be stoked that they tried it. I would have traded 4 late 90's shows for this one.

The rest of the show moves along just right. The OTHER ONE comes in with a decent amount of thunder and the WHARF RAT fills the Jerry slot just right. SUGAR MAGS thunders along with confidence and with Bob doing the best he can to just shred his vocal chords. A really solid effort here to close out the set.

Say what you want but when they play GLORIA, chances are they are having a good show when they break it out and this one doesn't dissapoint at all. All Bob here kids. He starts going off on how it's all going to be " Better Than TV....Better Than TV...Better Than T. VVVVVVVVVVV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Overall I liked this show. Anytime I could get a High Time, Dire Wolf or Cumberland in a show I would be happy, let alone all three. Throw in the killer Shakedown, the Cassidy experiment, and G-L-O-R-I-A and you have a very good late era show that you might want to listen again. Thanks for reading this far.



First Set: 7/10
Second Set : 7/10
Song selection: 9
MVP- Bob

I am familiar with this show, as a 93 aficionado...

It is definitely a good one, with the most surprising placement for Cassidy. Nice review man. Loving your comments in general!

You are on a roll, Lucas - and definitely struck gold here. ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS OF THE 90s - bar none.

Thanks, in large part, to the Leshmeister...who storms out of the gate in the smokin Shakedown opener. Jerry's guitar is crisp throughout the show, and the setlist speaks for itself.

Thanks for the review - really can't get enough of this show. From start to finish, the listening experience is just great...no letdowns (save your Wave to the Wind comments please) whatsoever.

5/27/93 will always be heavy in my listening rotation.

Great show and very accurate review.
I'm not the 93 expert, but this to me is one of the better shows
Shit the setlist alone (other than Wave - blech) should raise eyebrows.
I might have pissed myself as there is not a bathroom break song in the 1st set.
Love the unique song selection pre-drums followed by the classic trio of Other>Wharf>Sugar Mag and a great encore.
And they definately deliver the goods. You're right Swami - they came to play this day.

Love this show! Cal-Expo was such a cool place to see the boys. Every summer since 88 me and a bunch of my friends would drive down to Sacto and catch these shows until 94. Summer was at Cal-Expo and winter was Oakland Coliseum. Love all the tunes especially the one's from Workingman's. Great show-Nice review.

I wanted to bump this topic to encourage people to give this show, along with the one from 5/26, consideration for the top 64 competition.

I actually prefer the one from 5/26/93, although it might have been because I was there. The first set from 5/26 is OK. I happen to really like Broken Arrow and the Deal ending is strong and gives a preview that the second set would be good and it did not disappoint. The Playin is a highlight. It goes in different directions and has very good contributions and interchange between Vince and Jerry. I also like the interchange between Jerry and Phil on Crazy Fingers and the China Doll is sweet.

Yes, easily the best PITB of the year, and competes, in my mind, for top 5 ever at least.
You need to listen to this song folks if you haven't, give 93 a shot.

So, if the Playin is possibly in one of your 5 best of all time, and if the rest of the second set is solid and if the first set has a very good Deal (I realize these last two evaluations are mine. Not sure what you think beyond the Playin), then should 5/26 be one of your top 8 shows of the year and put on your list for the competition? How about rethinking this?

Well, I don't consider the bulk of this show to be as good as some others from 93, but I should give this another listen and maybe rethink my 93 list... it has been a while since I heard the whole show from start to finish.
Last time I listened, I wasn't as impressed with the rest of this show as I recall, but times have changed... and my memory could be mistaken... it has been known to happen Very Happy

Overall, I think your review is right on. I would like to add my view on the transition back into Cassidy. I really like it and think it is rather smooth and nice.

Masterpiece is masterpiece, I agree, but I remember this one better than any others I saw because the entire crowd turned around, away from Bob and the stage, to watch the beautiful sunset unfolding. We were engulfed in a deep red hue, with cool looking clouds wisping through the air.

Do you remember that fillmoreeast?

I loved Cal Expo too, one of my favorite venues, and they always seemed to play very well there.

I do have a vague memory of that. Sacto does have some beautiful sunsets, but unfortunately some are due to the smog Sad I think what really struck me about this show was they played half the tunes from Workingman's Dead. Is this the show where they showed slides of "The Bus" on a big screen during TOO? also loved the GLORIA encore. They did that a few times at Cal-Expo Cool

Regretfully, I was very messed up at this show. Bobby admonishing me and Jerry asking Bobby to take it easy on me. But yeah, fine show - I am glad I was able to listen to it on archive.
