Aching and emphatic. Brent and Jerry really starting to gel.

Fast and energetic with some really inspired moments, despite harsh keys sound.

Great vocals from all and the solos are really sweet. Lesh is all over this and the reggae ending is nicely handled. Whole gig's a good 'un.

Encore with crazy drumming, Weir's guitar nice and high in the mix, and Garcia relentless. Vocals are pretty good too.

Just terrific. Phil really shines. One of the very best of the very many I've heard.

Thanks for the heads up. Keith's having a lot of fun on this, isn't he?

The vocal is really delicate at times and deeply soulful, but getting the first line wrong stops it from being a perfect one. And there are one or two 'ouch, who did that?' notes played by someone here and there. Maybe I'm being too picky, though. It definitely deserves more love on the strength of the singing alone.

Jerry's singing. Bugger me, that's some beautiful stuff. I was tearing up. Hadn't heard it before and it's now my favourite.
