9I Know You Rider
Playing -> I Know You Rider. Jerry SCREAMS "wish I was a headlight" and blows Phil's mind
2Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again
6Hey Pocky Way
How can you hate any version where Brent is just totally invested?
2Playin' In The Band
Short, sweet, > Rider (!). Fitting show to close (what becomes) the Days Between.
Solidly played, beautiful cacophony at the end as the band varies the outro themes.
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.
4Standing 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.
1Not Fade Away
Tight rock and roll.
2Cold Rain and Snow
Assured delivery with Bobby whammy work all over it..
Jeepers! Listen as Brent channels Keith and the band stays tight tight tight.
2We Can Run
And the set grinds to a complete stop.
1Let It Grow
Wild version with great work from Jerry and Brent.
