9/19/90 - 7th Avenue & West 34th Street

2 Penn Plaza...

While I worked for DHL in NYC, I often entered this building, on business, and wished I had seen one of about 100000000 hot shows played here...

Here is a review of one. A recent Miller SBD upgrade.

Madison Square Garden
New York , NY
Date 9/19/90 - Wednesday
One [1:06:04]
Jack Straw [5:58] ; Bertha [6:55] ; Me And My Uncle [3:09] > Big River [6:01] ; It Must Have Been The Roses [5:15] ; Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again [8:31] ; Help On The Way [4:16] > Slipknot! [6:34] > Franklin's Tower [13:16]
Two [1:46:11 %]
Playing In The Band [10:31] > Ship Of Fools [6:33] > Playing Jam [2:33] > Uncle John's Band [10:41] > Let It Grow [11:43] > Jam % [9:55] > Space [2:17] > Drums [9:52] > Space [9:28] > Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad [7:34] > Stella Blue [10:29] > Around And Around [8:18]
Encore: The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo) [4:47]

1990... 2 months ago Brent Mydland died of an overdose. speedball (heroin & cocaine)... How many times had he come close before that? And Jerome?

The boys put together an amazing comeback, and this run in NYC typifies the great times that would be had with Bruce and Vince taking over for Brentski (RIP). Since this is in NYC, how about a Martini...

Set One
Jack Straw: Levels are a bit off here, as is to be expected. Bruce is singing & playing clear as a bell. You can tell he liked this song. Jerry is keeping it fairly standard, but then lets loose in the end, a good omen. Phil is dropping awesome bomblets throughout.
Bertha is the next in the chute, very Vince heavy synth, but it still rocks due to Phil & Jer, followed by...
At this point the game is crowd 2, Jerry 21... Me & My Uncle> Big River looks to extend that lead. Slam dunk! The boys are on fire.
Then a nice sick and twisted song for those crazy NYers... It Must Have Been the Rose... the heavy synth is perfect here, giving the song a funeral home type of vibe

Bobby, Bobby Dylan>Stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again. This is similar to the rest of the first set, smokin'.

Jerry's got the rock, he's in three point territory, and swish! H>S>F... With the assist from Bruce Hornsby. At the end of the first set the score is crowd 7, Jerry 56. A beautiful Slipknot! where Bruce and Jerry are feeding off each other. Vince is providing one of my favorite Vince tones in the background, like a large, dull whistle. Phil continues to shake the arena, now dropping bombs regularly... luckily MSG is suspended above the ground. This song escalates to DEFCON4 and we get the idea of the Grateness of the night. Clearly the highlight of the first set. Momentum is maintained well with the Tower, and the 2nd set beckons. Bruce crushes it. During the final jam Jerry really bangs out the high notes.

Set Two
When teams have a huge lead they often play it conservatively, not the Dead. You are about to enter one of the top five pre-drums sequences of the 90s, and that ain't no joke (Along with 3/29/90, 7/12/90, 6/17/91, 9/13/93)

Playin'> in the Band to start it off. This is another good omen. Vince throws caution to the wind. Bobby flubs the opening lyric. Phil bounces his low notes off of the rafters, which are weakening with every note. As soon as they hit the jamming you can feel the X factor taking over. The crowd can be heard on this SBD pretty clearly at that point. Some of Vince's best work indeed. Jerry weaves a tapestry of groove over the crowd, as Phil dances back and forth rhythmically. Bobby is hitting the spirals. Bruce chimes in perfectly sporadically. Around the 5:15 mark Jerry decides to use his notes as a "sophistacted 'laser' attached to (his) head", and we are fully into bliss. Sorry, not one show in 71 comes close to this jam for me. But that is an argument for a previous day. It builds and builds, busting through the roof of the Gaaaaden and out into the NYC skyline. The jam gets a bit Jerry-centric, but Phil catches hold to save it, and we continue an upward trajectory and are now above the nearby Empire State Building. Once above the cloud level we are brought into the clouds with a sweet transition into Ship of Fools>. One of the all time best Ships. I would sail anywhere with it, but, I am a fool for Fools. Again, the entire band is on during this amazing show on this amazing run. The synth does the job well, with Bruce hitting the piano perfectly for emphasis. This fine effort transitions quite nicely back into a PITB Jam>... which heads into...
Uncle John's Band> does not disappoint though the PITB has it beat. Bruce hits the accordion during this UJB and that is a primary reason the PITB is better. The outro jam is nice, with some well placed MIDI action.
Let It Grow>Jam Um... Holy shit. From the seamless segue, Bruce gets back on the grand, and we have a true moment of greatness in music history. Jerry & Phil share control of this one. The LIG gets a bit sloppy, but recovers thanks to Jerry. When we finally hit the jam 1/2 the band has left the stage. No matter. Jerry & Bruce are in synch. Vince chimes in here and there, but Jerry & Bruce are clearly feeling it. Bobby supplies some filler for us too. Then Jerry gets motivated, and Bruce is with it. They almost sound like a Truckin' is in the offing, but they just keep it jamming and I really dig Bobby's work here. Perfectly compliments the rest of the music. Then Jerry & Bruce completely take over. This jam is so mellow, and smooth... it even had a NYC feel to it (on a good NYC day, not a stuck in traffic, waiting for the sun type of feeling). It gets way groovy around the 9 minute mark of the jam (a separate track). Just before the 10 minute mark a new tone is hit, and then prematurely abandoned, leaving us wanting more...
Drums>Space I did say it was one of the best Pre-Drums. The drums is as usual (though, live drums was better... I remember my first drums, I even danced throughout that, with the help of some "dancing skeletons" produced in respect for the tour that had come to town in DC). Space is fine.
But, what is this out of space? GDTRFB!!! Don't get that too often. Were I in the audience halfway through space I would've guessed the Wheel or TOO. The wheel is most probably based on Jerry, and TOO, hell, I always hope for that! But, GDTRFB is one of my favorite post space tunes too. This one is certainly fun, a song Bruce excelled on.
We are then treated to a crisp Stella, Jerry is not going to let his domination of the entire night slip here. Solid Stella, with an amazing crescendo.
This is followed by a one song closer in Around & Around... kind of disappointing to me, but hey, you can't win them all.

Encore - When Quinn the Eskimo gets here...

Final score:
Crowd 17
Jerry 121

We did this show last night at the LP, great stuff. From the opening Jack Straw, Jerry is wailing.
Definitely a cool show, the pre-drums is especially excellent... perhaps the best ever Ship of Fools nuzzled in between a stellar PITB.

I'll take the bait man. I don't think I've ever heard this one, and I'm gonna be cuddling with my laptop all day, so I'll give it a listen...

It's now a Road Trips release Sad but luckily there is a really nice AUD available...

I listened while I was working, so I wasn't really focused on it, but I liked it a lot. Solid first. Jerry's a little throaty throughout most of the show, but not a big deal. Jack Straw and Bertha a solid 1-2 punch to open. Nice jamming for the Cowboy combo. Roses slows it down beautifully. H>S>F has a fairly slow pace, IMO.. a little too slow. However, Slipknot is well-jammed, and this is always a welcome addition to the first set.

Second set is where the money is. Awesome line-up. You know it's gonna be great when they open with Playin. Second set LIG? Nuff said. The pre-drums is on the 1990 highlight reel.

Kick-ass show, overall.

Indeed, a kick ass show it is. I love that extended jam out of LIG, nice and mellow... a showcase of the Jerry-Bruce connection that was probably never really surpassed again.
