Sugar Magnolia

Fox Theatre

Really melodic jam, which builds incrementally in velocity and intensity - then, screaming sunshine daydream

Cassidy

Uptown Theater

Very heady jam segment in this one. Show is a sleeper from May

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

Boston Garden

Jerry rips a sick intro solo. Hyped up energy

The 'butt sweat' meter is off the charts for this. Great Brent work and killer peak

This is a RIPPING good. Full shred, with thumping percussion. Wow.

The stank on this solo requires open windows when listening, for proper ventilation.

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

I'll double comment till the lights go out... Regardless of era or any other markers or metrics, this one thrills like few, if any, others. The peaks are glorious glimpses of the beyond, the valleys are soulful renderings of agony - this version is the absolute purpose of this song.
