Weirs Jort Army



June 14, 1984
Red Rocks Amphitheater

Super crisp song portion and tension/release jam segment. Very worthy
Brown Eyed Women
Oct. 25, 1979

Jerry is crazy nimble in this. Fresh from a 30 days of dead release - a choice cut
Sitting on Top of the World
May 19, 1966
Avalon Ballroom

Short, sweet, but THUMPING
Jack Straw
May 17, 1974
P.N.E. Coliseum

Show starts out a bit rough - tech issues, energy, song selection. Boys seem to come alive here, with some nice Jerry leads and Keith fills
June 13, 1980
Seattle Center Coliseum

Perfect tone, swells, and peaks. This soars


Bird Song
Oct. 15, 1984
Civic Center

I really dug this 30 days installment. Great Jerry/Bobby/Brent interplay. Boys threw down nice Bird Songs in Hartford
Dear Mr. Fantasy

Sullivan Stadium

If this doesn't have you smiling ear to ear at the Hey Jude peak, hold a mirror to your mouth to make sure you are still breathing, because you may be clinically dead.
Dec. 31, 1987
Oakland Coliseum Arena

Super energetic, crisp, and dextrous handling from Jerry. How you start a New Years show with a BANG
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
May 19, 1966
Avalon Ballroom

Super strong, early version - driving drum beat. Jerry crisp on the vocals
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
April 17, 1984
Niagara Falls Convention Center

Is there slop in here? Oh you better believe it - BUT, this Slipknot! has a flat out bonkers, high octane jam. Jerry is a freight train of frantic energy, making this one special.
