Black Peter

11
He's Gone
Energetic late 80's performance. This version really "pops" on tape. Featured on 30 Days of Dead from Nov. 2010

C. C. Rider
The build the final jam and its just waterfalls all over you.
13
Midnight Hour
great opening to a show
18
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Hot, compact ChinaCat jam, but the highlight is Jerry hammering the "headlight" lyric in Rider. Gave me chills (as most similar later versions do)
16
When Push Comes to Shove
Wow jerry, wow.
15
Row Jimmy
Great vocals from all and the solos are really sweet. Lesh is all over this and the reggae ending is nicely handled. Whole gig's a good 'un.

The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo)
Groovy encore, lyrics nailed.
5
Promised Land
Peaks insanely

Looks Like Rain
Moves along nicely. Jerry is flawless.
