40China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
This is just sick.. period.
25Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Smokin' and charged with energy
My birthday show (albeit a few years early). Worth it just to hear what comes out of Bobby's throat at the beginning of the song.
Great ending vocal jam with "Nobody's Fault but Mine" tease.
10The Other One
Comes from a great Space (and don't mind the AUD patch).
Zig zagging but controlled. Excellent version
Sweet Candyman here. Vocals nailed and solo nailed!
9Looks Like Rain
I love these 81-82 LLR's with the F-bombs and Bob going off.
another heady treat
Gonna be one of the highlights on the new Dave's picks. Really pretty Stella Blue, can not wait to hear the hi-quality issue.release More 80s please
Killer Cold rain>Jack Straw
26Friend of the Devil
Man is this version gorgeous!
16Little Red Rooster
One of the best ever at this great show!
Great era for Bob GL's. This one does not disappoint.
3U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Part of a nice 1-2 punch encore; the final, high energy rockers really elevate this show.
4Around and Around
Fun stuff, especially Brent's organ; actually enjoyed the Good Lovin' it goes into more than I usually do with Bobby versions.
3Cold Rain and Snow
Fine opener to an amazing show (...minus the Jack Straw disaster that follows).
2I Know You Rider
Incendiary version. Soaring licks and Phil bombs. Bobby cheeses the vocals but his playing on the final run sends this one over the top!
2Drums -> Space
Primal Drums as is befitting a heater of a show like this morphs into a delicate Space that features a crisp Spanish jam, and incredible -> into TOO
