Grateful Dead July 9, 1989

Epic Shakedown. Starts with lyric flubs by Brent and Bob, but rages onward to headiness.
8Not Fade Away
If you like 89, you will love this NFA.
4Built to Last
Nice and tight with solid Bruce touches
Powerful version. The vocal entrance at the end brings the house down, you can tell they're having fun; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gjjkcVIoys
Very inspired playing. Jazzy swing from the rhythm devils, Lesh is barreling down the low end, and Jerry dancing the leads to a powerful conclusion

Big ol Rager from a Splendid 89 show!!!
12China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Superific China>Rider from a big show at Giants Stadium!!!

This is a great version from a great show.

Sharp version with a great solo. Jerry rules here.
