10Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
Postcards of the Hanging version!
Set 2 Opener with Bruce Hornsby as guest.
4Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Jerry just attacks this one (vocally too) right from the outset. I love summer '89.
8New Minglewood Blues
Brent scats and Jerry's solos are absolutely blazing...real nice sleeper here!
7Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Epic Brent and Bruce simultaneous jam on this one.
Great version. Bob is really enjoying himself on this one.
Trippy extended jam by Jerry.
Not the 'ultimate' version, but a heartfelt late-era one with great playing and singing.
5Dear Mr. Fantasy
Jerry and Brent on FIRE!!!!
3Touch of Grey
Summer tour...Touch opener...just feels right.
2Friend of the Devil
Sweet sweet version
3Eyes Of The World
A smokin fast Eyes...similar to the Alpine version played a week later.
2Black Muddy River
Love Jers solo in this one...seems like a happier BMR
3Far From Me
Definitive with "fuck you bitch"
Great closer for this fun set. Brent kills the first solo. Jerry bitch smacks the finale.
2Ship of Fools
Great position of this tune this evening
The Drums is fine/good, but this one is great to cleary hear some spunion shout "holy fucking, SHIT!" on the SBD. Someone's mind = blown... Priceless
