Eyes Of The World
Scarlet>Eyes... you do the math
15
Brother Esau
By all accounts, this is a rather goofy song, but i love this version. Entire show is spot on
10
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
I started off with Heineken and soon hit the harder stuff
5
Brown Eyed Women
Wonderful Jerry and Brent adds a lot
1
Shakedown Street
Last half of the song just plain sizzles
8
Dancin' in the Streets
2nd to Greek'84 for '80s fallback versions to me. Jerry's solo just does it.
5
The Music Never Stopped
The first set ends with a rippin' Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues->Cold, Rain And Snow->The Music Never Stopped
2
The Wheel
Bet my balls you can't find a more delicate sounding jerry guitar than in this intro
2
Drums -> Space
BEAM! Very trippy. This show is just amazing. Get the SBDMC>DAT>CDR source.
5
Scarlet Begonias
Starts slow and builds with energy. Solo is explosive, bold and relentless! Jam drifts into Eyes of the World!
1
Keep Your Day Job
This is a pretty killer show in a year with many of them
1
Bertha
absolutely smoking show i dig this whole performance
2
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Slightly different sound and feel, Part of a Hot Scarlet Begonias->Eyes of the World->Goin Down The Road Feelin Bad triplet. HOT show
12
Ramble On Rose
Growling jerry, and so much going on in the background of this tune on this night. Phil and Brent are doing some wild things as is Bobby. Very HOT
1
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
The only version of Scarlet / Eyes - not Scarlet Fire - that I know of
2
Cold Rain and Snow
Punchy and clean with crispy accents
