Rager, bobby sounds like a madman possessed

Nice Scarlet extended first jam from Jerry tons of Brent here, The transition is stellar with ideas flowing from Jerry, Phil and Brent, hot exit jam
11The Race Is On
Great take on the rarely played tune follows a hot Cold Rain and Snow, VERY good early 1986 show
21Comes A Time
Really passionate reading, lots of good 1986 Comes A times. This is among the best.
7Cold Rain and Snow
Real hot opener followed by the rare jewel the race is on.
Jerry is passionate on this version, real nice
10C. C. Rider
Killer grove to this one.
Torched Deal at this top show from 86.
So good an encore wasn't needed.
Bobby flubs a line but the power and energy is superb, off the new 30 trips Box set, Which is beautiful by the way.
5Man Smart, Woman Smarter
High energy rocker, dont be scared by the 1986 date, they are dialed in on this evening
1Drums -> Space
I'm listening to this one in headphones right now & it's super cool. Dead were ahead of their time with experimental, ambient, electronica.
