Nassau Coliseum Uniondale, NY | Listen on archive
it just keeps building
19China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Effortlessly smooth transition...the boys show they mean business by starting off with this little number
4Looks Like Rain
23Playin' In The Band
20 minutes of headiness...it gets pretty out there
Jery gives it a little extra, and Weir is slashing some real gorgeousness
7Greatest Story Ever Told
Solid Phil bombs, great Kieth work, Weir n Jer shine, and Billy K rocks! Donna contributes nicely too
5U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
A great version from a somewhat overlooked show.
The boys push behind Bobby like the posse chasing the narrator of the song. You can hear the hoofbeats. Excellent.
Beautiful ensemble playing. Jerry and Donna harmonise nicely.
A long deep ride: Inter-stellar collectivity with deep-space weirdness after 1st chorus.
Check out the totally mad vocals. Someone's belting it out, and it ain't Donna! Out of a killer Dark Star.
Massive and powerful. Jerry and Keith are just brilliant. OK, that all from me on this great show.
4Box of Rain
Phil and Donna kick it out in a show that smokes from the China opener on as a bonus there is a top shelf CM soundboard for your listening pleasure
4They Love Each Other
early excellent version
Beautiful playing and singing throughout, restrained and focused razor-sharp
A charged version that starts off a triple-thread run for this massive second set.
