7Samson and Delilah
This one is a monster.
17Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
Best of the 80's.
Very powerful version. They nail the dynamics - loud as hell and soft as a whisper. Coming out of a great SPACE...
X factor jamming with Garcia playing some unique soaring leads in the modal scale. Ending jam has similarities to a strong version on 10/12/83.
5Drums -> Space
Drums -> Space the opportunity to find ones way to Neptune, this Space achieves liftoff and descent in transitioning into a blissful Dew
Jerry's restatements of the melody throughout his solos are brilliant uptempo marvels.
3Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Steps out unexpectedly from an almost-aborted Miracle. Tight and right jamming.
They hit all the change-ups perfectly here and close strong at their neighborhood venue.
My favorite of the year. Not the longest but it's just performed tight!
Bob does a nice little tribute to Pigpen in this one.
