Weirs Jort Army



Promised Land
Dec. 15, 1978
Boutwell Auditorium

They are playing in Birmingham, the song mentions Birmingham, mass crowd hysteria ensues. Hot version though, so justifiable
Sugar Magnolia
April 11, 1978
Fox Theatre

Really melodic jam, which builds incrementally in velocity and intensity - then, screaming sunshine daydream
May 16, 1978
Uptown Theater

Very heady jam segment in this one. Show is a sleeper from May
May 14, 1978
Providence Civic Center

The latter half of a great on-two punch to kick off the show (1/2 step preceding), this Cassidy is an absolute bute. Bob/Jer communication is tight
New Minglewood Blues
May 12, 1980
Boston Garden

Jerry rips a sick intro solo. Hyped up energy


Shakedown Street
Nov. 23, 1978
Capital Centre

Very cool Ollin Jam into a nice, early version Shakedown, sliding effortlessly into a Playin' Reprise. The end of this jam comes together nicely with some staccato type playing from Jerry
May 13, 1978
The Spectrum

HUGE call and response interplay between Bobby and Jerry. Fan of bluesy back and forth axemanship?? Yes please.
The Music Never Stopped
May 16, 1978
Uptown Theater

Agree, sweet wind up for this one
Row Jimmy
May 16, 1978
Uptown Theater

Jerry solo is an emotional swing for the fences. Powerful, within the expected framework of this somber song
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
May 16, 1978
Uptown Theater

The Scarlett from this is really nice. Loose, airy, flowing jamming
