Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
A monster show and a monster Scarlet->Fire... the intro into Fire is to die for
3
Walking Blues
this is an easy one... they don't get much raunchier than this version
4
Brother Esau
What can I say, I love Bobby and i love this tune. This naturally quirky song is executed perfectly, as with most outings in spring/summer '85
1
Dancin' in the Streets
Dead at the Shed and a revved up show opener of Dancin' makes for a killer show
3
Dear Mr. Fantasy
out of Space..Jerry just starts playing the intro, nice power chord from Weir too
4
Playin' In The Band
Brain Melting, nice example of a certain quality to Jerry's playing in the 80's that I love

Uncle John's Band
Extremely passionate, if compact version. JG's leads are especilly determined during the jams.
1
Let It Grow
Big power here. Over and over and over again.
2
Good Lovin'
This is maybe the best Weir version. Perfectly executed...well jammed and great Bob rap...."Push back, push back the night." Epic version.

Stagger Lee
Worthy of a spin! Strong show at The Post.
3
Jack A Roe
Crispy + Clean
3
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Kicks ass for '85...Bobby fuzzed out behind Jerry's piercing the acid bubble. Saw this and forgot how good it was...happens hahahah
2
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Capper on a double encore - whole show crushes and this Baby Blue is SUPERKIND.

Mama Tried
Jerry's boogie and Bob's vocals make this one.
