4Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
This one is pure stellar magic ripping.
2Looks Like Rain
very solid version. spring '87 rocks!
2Beat it on Down The Line
Listen to how Jerry begins the second chorus of his solo. Brilliant. Mickey drives this hard too. Heat builds up in the set leading to this.
2Me and My Uncle
Hot instrumental jam from Jerry.
2When Push Comes to Shove
A song with a unique point of view and metaphorical context, this version is delivered well.
This one climbs, blooms, and sheds in that direct 87-Bird Song way, complete with bird sounds.
2The Music Never Stopped
Great 87-energy workout on this one.
2Cold Rain and Snow
Phil’s opening bass run shakes the room
