Scarlet Begonias
EPIC Sugar Mag->Scarlet seamless transition! Like one big song. Phil and Jer are on fire!
16
Throwing Stones
Pretty nuts
10
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.
18
Touch of Grey
The opener for a fantastic show
8
Jack Straw
Jerry goes off and the solos are just insane
16
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.)
14
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.
2
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.
