Bird Song

Giants Stadium

Very inspired playing. Jazzy swing from the rhythm devils, Lesh is barreling down the low end, and Jerry dancing the leads to a powerful conclusion

Red Rocks Amphitheatre

This one takes a bit before the boys get their footing, but once they do, LOOK OUT. Choice peak in this throbber

SCREAMING start to the show. Boys attack like rabid dogs. Great Brent solo in here. Welcome to Red Rocks!

This one opens up nicely, and continually unfolds, into a seamless segue into PITB reprise

Boutwell Auditorium

They are playing in Birmingham, the song mentions Birmingham, mass crowd hysteria ensues. Hot version though, so justifiable

Throwing HAYMAKERS. Bobby bringing chaw on vocals, Jerry is red hot on leads, Lesh and devils killing the low end, Brent with passionate fills. This one is FIRE. Bobby screaming the refrain = goosebumps

Reno Centennial Coliseum

Oh man, this one is passionate. Very soulful licks from Jerry
The Music Never Stopped

Hershey Park Stadium

Brent goes NUTS in this. Chunky playing, combining with Jerry's triumphant leads, and Bobby's powerful rhythmic chords
He's Gone
Aug. 3, 1982
Starlight Theatre

Vocals are sweeter than honey, which lead to a bluesy solo that bleeds effortlessly into TOO. Very nice
Big Railroad Blues
Aug. 3, 1982
Starlight Theatre

A vibrant and bouncy version. Not a shredder like some other versions of the era, but the band is shining very brightly on this one
