Weirs Jort Army



Dark Hollow
Oct. 9, 1980
Warfield Theater

So clean, perfectly executed - acoustic butter
Around and Around
May 4, 1979
Hampton Coliseum

Not usually my song, but this one cranks into hyper speed, with Brent preaching on the organ and Jerry nailing the licks
May 4, 1979
Hampton Coliseum

Not the longest version, but hot with some interesting diversions into different territory than a normal Truckin'. Segues effortlessly into Stella
May 4, 1979
Hampton Coliseum

Fiery version - Jerry is ON. Mothership on hype. Worthy of a focused spin
Terrapin Station
May 6, 1990
California State University Dominguez Hills

Powerful ~16 min version with strong Chill Lesh prominence


Wharf Rat
April 25, 1977
Capitol Theater

This version is everything. Jerry's licks leading into the jam portion are indelibly etched into my brain. I have no shame in double commenting - this one is one of the absolute tops and deserves dap.
Morning Dew
Feb. 28, 1969
Fillmore West

Show opening, near 12 min version. Raw, powerful and emotive. Love, love, love Jerry’s tone
Turn On Your Love Light
Feb. 28, 1969
Fillmore West

For me, this one is the ONE. Such controlled manic swells, perfectly paced, everyone is nimbly riding an incredible wave of energy. Creativity paired with precision. UnREAL levels of greatness
Cumberland Blues
April 8, 1972
Wembley Empire Pool

Went back to my roots for Jerry week and this screamer has lost on steam or luster after all these years. Keith is an absolute MONSTER on the boards. Speed country rock at its absolute best
The Music Never Stopped
June 7, 1977
Winterland Arena

Never stop, NEVER STOP, NO. Full throttle, shot out of a cannon energy. To shelf heater
