3Cold Rain and Snow
Wow. Not on the list. Check this one.
Peter's First Black Peter is The Dead's Best Black Peter
Energetic late 80's performance. This version really "pops" on tape. Featured on 30 Days of Dead from Nov. 2010
5C. C. Rider
The build the final jam and its just waterfalls all over you.
great opening to a show
5China 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)
3When Push Comes to Shove
Wow jerry, wow.
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.
3The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo)
Groovy encore, lyrics nailed.
1Looks Like Rain
Moves along nicely. Jerry is flawless.
1I Need A Miracle
Comes fiercely right out of space.
Hot throughout. Special night.
