Playin' In The Band
second set opener is always nice
22
Jack Straw
Jerry's Solo in this Jack Straw is as good as anything I have heard him play.
5
Big River
An A1 performance that just improves with repeated listenings.
13
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
A big version. Listen as the baton gets passed without missing a beat.
21
Let It Grow
Hornsby gets on board in a big way & Jerry jazzes up the jam sections. Weir slashes away & sings w/passion. Strong candidate for Best of the 90's.
9
Stella Blue
one of the top 10 or 15 versions ever, imho. very beautiful.
8
Uncle John's Band
Epic run and this a great pre-drums! Awesome UJB>LIG!
7
Bertha
Energetic, smoking, and glue. Naturally tight, the click is unmistakable. The AUD is like an SBD, quality A.

The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo)
GREAT ENCORE,brought the house down and everyone stayed no rush for the doors at least from my memories.
9
Ship of Fools
Never my favorite song, but if placed right like this evening....it can add to a show.

Around and Around
MSG Rocking show ender, a great Vince late era version. Received lots of love in the dead base XI poll.

Me and My Uncle
MSG 1990 Rocked!!!

Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again
A pounding, emotional version delivered with the inspiration that runs throughout the MSG ’90 run
