Note: The 100 Year Hall was likely built for the 100 year anniversary of the unification of Germany... the GD cover from the earlier official release made it seem as though this was some ancient hall.

Bertha comes out will full energy, and no sound problems. It is good, the Germans would not have appreciated mistakes. Great early show solo by Jerry!
MAMU is what you would expect.
Mr. Charlie, the audience receives a scolding for using flashbulbs after the song.
He's Gone has a quick tempo, as it generally did on the tour. I can actually see why they slowed it down a bit, but some later versions were toooooo slow. They actually do slow the tempo here a bit, to good effect, nice Gone.
BTW keeps the energy going nicely, with no overzealous outro singing by Bobby to mar things.
Next Time You See Me
China>Rider the transition takes a mellow, but quite pleasing turn right away, with the right bit of feedback even being added. The transition is also a bit longer than most from this tour, which is a plus. Rider is groovy as they get, with minor Phil bombs punctuating Jerry's punctuations. Great China>Rider!
Big RR chugs through to a nice finale.
PITB is just starting to get its wings. Post-lyrical dive starts off smooth and wahwah-y. The jam is just getting good, and they go back to the reprise, perhaps this was an example of a show where later one of them said, that was getting good, let's just go with it in the future.
Loser is especially poignant, with the boys doing everything right, nothing over the top, Jerry in full control of the emotion via vox and guitar. Winning Loser.
BIODTL, ok, I somewhat liked this one, which is a vast improvement over most.
You Win Again... Loses again. Followed by a Zippidy Doo Dah tuning... WTF kind of micky mouse bullshit is this.
Dire Wolf is a nice comeback after a mediocre, overly drawn out GLuv.
Truckin'>Drums>TOO>Comes a Time>Sug Mags
The Truckin' starts off the 2nd set in nice motion, with the explosion jam feeding into a somewhat sloppy vocal reprise. After this we get treated to a few minutes of jamming by Keith and Billy before Billy gets a solo, nothing spectacular. Phil gently bombs us back to reality, and then Jerry starts shredding one of the most amazing TOOs out there! To give a little timeline, they hit the first verse after the 13 minute mark, the ensuing jam goes through all sorts of nooks and crannies, including a Phil/Jerry spotlight with bombs and notes of great oddity, then something that I consider to be the first Tiger starting around 26 minutes, before heading into the final verse at 35 minutes. Comes a Time is a real treat after having your face ripped off, and the start Sugar Mags finishes up the first and best meat sequence.
TN Jed is solid, great jam in here, with perfect tone by Garcia. Keith and Billy really help push this along, while Bobby fills in magnificently during the crescendo. A+.
GSET is funky as hell, bringing the fantastic,jammed out teamwork you would expect.
The Lovelight, after Pig lets up, gets some great Jerry spotlight action as well, reviving the energy after the Stranger. GDTRFB and OMSN keep the energy going, sending the crowd out with a bang.
From the opening notes, the energy was there. This turned down a bit, but cohesion was maintained throughout the rest of the first set. The second set is great, with what I consider to be the first Tiger ever buried late in the lengthy TOO.
Official release, more or less as good as you will ever hear.
Posted: Wed Jul 09, 2014 3:55 pm Post subject: my first purchase...
I was just getting on board as the train reached its final station.
Hundred Year's Hall was my first "vault" purchase back in 1995. I remember repeated listenings to it on the roof of 714 over on the dark side on the campus of the University of Dayton. 714 was also the home of "Dick's Fest" where we listened to the latest pick as it came across. I believe the last one issued before graduation was #7 (Sept. 1974). Good times.
Anyway, Hundred Year's Hall (and now the full show) are just stellar. Highly recommended. Though I must admit, when I was just starting out, that TOO was hard to navigate. Newbies may struggle with how out there it is.
