I Know You Rider
Playing -> I Know You Rider. Jerry SCREAMS "wish I was a headlight" and blows Phil's mind
6
Hey Pocky Way
How can you hate any version where Brent is just totally invested?
2
Playin' In The Band
Short, sweet, > Rider (!). Fitting show to close (what becomes) the Days Between.
4
Terrapin Station
Solidly played, beautiful cacophony at the end as the band varies the outro themes.
3
Throwing Stones
This song usually gets under my skin, but when it's working like it's supposed to (Bobby's on, set list placement, etc.), I get it.
4
Standing On The Moon
beautiful reading of this song. Jerry forgets some words, and makes up for it with some expressive singing in the following line.
1
Not Fade Away
Tight rock and roll.
2
Cold Rain and Snow
Assured delivery with Bobby whammy work all over it..
1
Stagger Lee
Jeepers! Listen as Brent channels Keith and the band stays tight tight tight.
2
We Can Run
And the set grinds to a complete stop.
1
Let It Grow
Wild version with great work from Jerry and Brent.
