Promised Land starts us off in typical fashion with good energy.
BEW is a nice one, they are setting up for a nice show.
TLEO has a great tempo, fun song.
Donít Ease, believe it or not, this is the highlight of the set thus far!
Mexicali maintains the fun.
Row Jimmy features some nice high notes from Jerome, but drags things down a bit.
Race is On
China>Rider, and here we have a new highlight of the set, the segue into Rider is long and fantastic. Great teamwork throughout.
PITB is also fantastic, maintaining a proper tempo, while Garcia noodles his way through it all. Bob throws in some great supporting rhythm guitar. Interestingly, the jam they find sticks, with little exploration, as they focus on it. You couldnít ask for more. As they prepare for the reprise there is a the requisite segue back to the them which they handle beautifully. A+.
HC Sunshine is a nice way to open the 2nd, the energy picks up a lot in the outro jam.
MAMU is a good choice to maintain the energy.
To Lay Me Down is somber and beautiful.
Big River hits the spot again, Jerry and Keith, and as usual, killer outro.
Half-Step is a great effort, virtually perfect with a nice vibe.
GSET>Bertha, again, more consistent playing.
The meat sequence starts off in fine form. A ten minutes in things are heating up the way they are known to in this song. Thereís some great synched up guitar just before the 15th minute, which then sinks the song into the river, only to give rise to Jerryís opening chords of Eyes. The first verse jam is a nice little noodle fest, as is the second as it reaches higher places. Traditionally the more exploratory jam, the third verse jam/outro stays close to the theme for a good bit, with touches of what would later be slipknot riffs. Slipping into China Doll, our minds have a moment to reflect.
Around x2 has us rocking in place again!
Encore: UJB is missing from the official release!
This is a consistent show, never really reaching massive climax, but thoroughly enjoyable.
Probably the least talked about show of the trio. Terrific playing by all here. All three nights are A+ shows IMO. Thanks for the review. Think I'll give it a spin later tonight! BTW I love playing TLMD on my guitar. Beautiful, melodic and simple.
