Scarlet Begonias
EPIC Sugar Mag->Scarlet seamless transition! Like one big song. Phil and Jer are on fire!
13
Throwing Stones
Pretty nuts
9
Sugar Magnolia
Played into Scarlet Begonias seamlessly, this is like one big awesome song!
8
New Minglewood Blues
Balls out. Tasty licks from jerry during the verses and everyone is dialed in this whole show
6
Dear Mr. Fantasy
Part of what made this Alpine run so legendary. Soulful and Brent-astic.
16
Touch of Grey
The opener for a fantastic show
8
Jack Straw
Jerry goes off and the solos are just insane
14
Bird Song
1989 was a very good year for Birdsongs. This one deserves consideration along with 10/8/89 and 12/8/89.
5
Jack A Roe
Went on here to vote for what IMO is the best Jack A Roe... and it wasn't here! Give it a try please :)
4
Drums -> Space
Picking up right where the previous night left off...
4
The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo)
Brent! Brent! Brent! (And everyone else is just exactly right too.)
10
China Doll
a nice one out of space, brent was great on this song.
3
Hey Jude Finale
super from such a tight run
1
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Great energy - searing 2nd solo, no FOTM - is that why it's not here? It's deserving.
1
Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Killer version at Alpine. They skip the reprise vocal as they go into Eyes.
1
Eyes Of The World
One of those high energy fast versions from 89. Alpine 89 magic, obviously.
