Shoreline Amphitheatre
Location Mountain View, CA
Date 5/24/92 - Sunday

One Shakedown Street ; The Same Thing ; Dire Wolf ; When I Paint My Masterpiece ; Loser ; It's All Over Now ; Foolish Heart

The SHAKE starts off a bit disjointed, but finds a nice, hollow groove and funks out more than adequately. The body of the First Set is good stuff, albeit standard fare - up until Mr. FOOLISH hits home with heart and soul. This is up at the the top with my favorite all-time renditions. The intro is delicately woven, with cousin Vinny joining in at exactly the right spot and with perfect tonality. The build-up jam prior to "bite the hand" is executed with intensity, and the bonus jam is a wonderful cap to the 1st stanza. What a great setlist position for Foolish.

Two Eyes Of The World > Samson And Delilah ; So Many Roads ; Way To Go Home > Corrina > Drums > Space > The Last Time > Morning Dew
Encore Johnny B. Goode

Picking up where F.H. left off, this mammoth 16-minute EYES is probably the highlight of the highlights. A slowed-down 90s tempo, fresh and clear of the musical diarrhea at times in the Bruce Era, this work of art was a Vince and Jerry showcase. Lesh't I forget Phil! Actually Phil should be mentioned first, as his bass is commanding throughout, allowing Jerry and Vince the freedom to explore in between verses. The jam connecting verses 2 and 3 is where Welnick really shines, laying it all on the line just before the "Sometimes we live..." finale.

Silky-smooth transition into a SAMSON that turned out rather mellow - merely a pleasant interlude before Jerry's next choice .... SO MANY ROADS! Still early in it's existence, this version was passionate and not tired-sounding as some later versions tended to be. To me, it fit perfectly in the "Ship of Fools" setlist spot.

WAY TO GO HOME? Vinny deserved it, and delivered a rockin' rollin' rendition - delectable and indubitably detectable. A long, long way indeed.

CORRINA - Completing the trio of 92 new songs, Corrina was made for the "Playin" slot, and once again the listener ought not to be disappointed. While falling short length-wise of the set-opener, Corrina rekindled the jamming. A confident, rhythmically groovin' jam flowed naturally into a very tribal DRUMZ.

SPACE may not have even been as spacey as the Drumz before it, and before long, LAST TIME emerged. DEW gives us another Jerome highlight, and gives pause to reflect on what was indeed a great setlist, Jerry-wise (Shakedown, Foolish, Eyes, So Many Roads, and Dew)! Bobby let us down easy with the perfect encore choice, JOHNNY B. GOODE, which includes some nice soloing.

p.s. While not epic, the Dew does do what a Dew is supposed to do (there geez).



Swami's Summary: Perfect choice when seeking a great 1992 show that is true to it's time period. You get to hear good versions of the new songs, you get a solid Vince Welnick performance, and Lesh but not least, Jerry brings home the bacon.

Highlights: Foolish, EYES, Corrina....did I mention Eyes??

Yeah I remember thinking just that as I stood there and watched the band leave the stage that night. WTF?

Honestly, the set list that night disappointed me as well.

So Many Roads ; Way To Go Home > Corrina

I don't really like any of these tunes very much. Corrina replace Playin? another WTF?

Check 5 days earlier for a smokin '92 show at Cal Expo 5-19!

I mean, I guess it isn't the end of the world, but I would have been a little upset... as I was when I was at 6/24/95 and post-space was Days Between>OMSN...
Evil or Very Mad

I will give it a shot though, I need to increase my 92 listening collection. The double mention of EYES does entice me as well. Swami picks are seldom disappointments also.
