A little rough, but oh so soulful
I would give my left nut to have been at this sweet show!!!!
2Dancin' in the Streets
Dancin' on the beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4I Just Wanna Make Love To You
The first known one since '66 and on my birthday to boot!!!
One of the few times the band played on my birthday and a good version too.
This version is stellar from a stellar show. I love the roughness and pure emotion in Jerry's voice. I have yet to hear a better version
out of a creepy space. Dew on the beach!
It really starts to grove.....
2Man Smart, Woman Smarter
5Samson and Delilah
Growling, aggressive, hard driving Samson that deserves to be on this list.
2Keep Your Day Job
1st set closer... not the cliche' it always was.
4Not Fade Away
This version won't miss this list on my clock.
OH... Just try it!
3Drums -> Space
The Fishbowl Jam
3Ramble On Rose
Whole show has that extra bouncy punch to it. Jerry has the 84 growl going on big time.
3Hell in a Bucket
Really raunchy hard rocking version. Teamed with Day Job for a very rock n roll ending to the set. this is a real stellar versions bobby gives his all
13Ship of Fools
Beautiful JErry really singing with a lot of passion, Brent and Phil are fabulous here as are Bobby's backing vocals. very poignant reading this time.
