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


Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
July 12, 1989
RFK Stadium

This one is tight and has a lovely, fluttering melodic peak. A choice version and a go-to track on the new RFK release, for sure
Dear Mr. Fantasy
July 12, 1989
RFK Stadium

Not usually my tune, but my good GOD, Jerry annihilates these solos
Not Fade Away
July 9, 1989
Giants Stadium

This is a RIPPING good. Full shred, with thumping percussion. Wow.
Feel Like A Stranger
Sept. 4, 1980
Providence Civic Center

The stank on this solo requires open windows when listening, for proper ventilation.
Built to Last
April 6, 1989
Crisler Arena

This is all about the seamless segues in and out of PITB. Jerry's vocals are rough this show, but the creativity and placement in the 2nd set make this a goodie
