China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Oct. 10, 1982
Frost Amphitheatre

The band is in rare form on this cut. A fast paced out of the gate china cat and Jerry is on. Smooth first lil lead hints on what is to come. The instrumental breaks build up a ton of steam for what is yet to become a powerhouse version! It blossoms beautifully into an extraordinary transitional jam segment. The band seems to be split here. Jerry holds off on that signature china cat jam riff until the tension builds to great heights. Phil digs in hard on his bass as Jer scorches the crowd with his perfectly executed phrases. Amazing playing '82 was really an amazing year! The Rider delivers, don't miss this Jem!
