Mexicali Blues
Whoops! I put this as 1990-03-28 originally like an ass. Still "Kickin-ass" tho
5
Morning Dew
reaches a powerful peak that brings this sequence to a thrilling conclusion.
6
Little Red Rooster
Acceptable slide playing from Bobby. Nice extended organ solo, MIDI sax solo. Whole band playing blues choruses gives first set particular vibe.
4
Friend of the Devil
Brent's playing goes far outside of the rhythmic structures the rest of the band is using to support him, shaking them out of their complacency.
3
Looks Like Rain
nice rap from Bobby at end, which draws out Jerry and Brent.
4
Truckin'
Nice full band jam at the end.
3
Drums -> Space
Some really interesting stuff here!
5
The Wheel
Wonderful > from Space. Brent! Tempo and energy boost before the chorus.
7
All Along the Watchtower
Embarrassingly bad > from "Wheel," but full-on assault from the band that rages throughout otherwise.
5
Just A Little Light
Just a little sweetness!
8
Shakedown Street
Who said Hartford ain't got no heart??
3
Stagger Lee
Love this one. They bring the final jam!
2
The Music Never Stopped
They torch it!
4
He's Gone
Sweet version into a hot Truckin'
3
When I Paint My Masterpiece
Tremendous Dylan cover, this is terrific Hot Spring 1990
5
Ramble On Rose
Fantastic late era Brent version, been really groovin on this tune lately.
2
Spoonful
Great version out of "Truckin."
