Encore: One More Saturday Night [4:38]
(1) second half of CC Rider played in double time.


Alabama Getaway comes racing off the starting blocks, and Jerry crushes the solo, with the whole team fully fired out for the finale. Bobby drives us directly into a fun Promised Land, where Jerry is quite aggressive in the outro jamming. Of the slower, post-retirement Friend of the Devils, this one stands out in intensity, which is the catchword of the show thus far. As the notes indicate, the CC Rider doubles its own tempo halfway through, a marvelous move where the drummers tapped into the energy oozing around them. It clearly wasn't planned, but Jerry and Bobby jump right onto it! A+ CC Rider. (I think the drummers were just sick of the slow versions and staged a coup!). You'd better believe the Cumberland Blues is sick, Jerry shreds the hell out of it, Phil be-bopping under it all, they're clearly enjoying themselves. Bob's work behind Jer is also quite note worthy. Bob doesn't wait to jump into El Paso, where Jerry's noodling behind the lyrics is perfect. Passenger is another bass and guitar fest, with the drummers pushing it along nicely as well. Bird Song is a nice touch next, giving a good flow to the set list that is thus far quite smooth. The take off is also smooth as we reach dizzying altitudes of high notes, you definitely feel as though adrift. In what has to be one of the most powerfully played Let It Grows they've ever done, expect lots of gain guitar Jerry to slice through you. Drummers are on fire setting a great tempo, as are Bob Weird and Brent. Phil is not to be overlooked. A+ Let It Grow!

Shakedown has strong opening (not)power chords, which is key, and fully expected in this show's second set opener. Did someone order a version with extra disco? This one has it, courtesy of Brent. Directly out of this A+ Shakedown we get a Sailor at the fastest clip I can ever recall hearing. The Saint will blow your doors off, A+ version, featuring the desired massive noodlefest, strong Bobby, and a great crashdown before Bobby doesn't know what he's going for and starts dropping F bombs... The fun isn't over, we get the unorthodox placement of Big RR where Jerry once again showcases his skills, Bob remains absolutely en fuego, and is rewarded with PITB. Tempo is perfect for both Big RR and PITB. The drummers pull out all the stops during the verse, and then we head into a heavenly jam, which turns into a 1972 style PITB with the addition of Brent crescendos. X factor achieved, another A+ on the report card.

Space starts off as the soundtrack for "2001: Space Odyssey" and ends in chaos before a booming Wheel emerges. As the wheel descends PITB gets its reprise, then into a gorgeous Stella with its blistering climax. An abrupt end is caused by Bobby pushing into a somewhat sloppy Sugar Magnolia that keeps the energy rocking, as does the predictable OMSN encore!

Performance Summary
The first set comes out strong and doesn't let up. You know when I'm even praising CC Rider, something is afoot. Pre-drums is brimming with energy as X Factor is prevalent in several spots. They didn't fall of the edge after space, and though not as driven as pre-drums it's solid, with the Stella>Sugar Mags being a nice closing duo.

Sound Quality
A, there is a patch in Ramble On, it seems, though it is a high quality patch.
