the younger one



Pretty Peggy O
Oct. 11, 1984
Civic Center

Jerry plucking the heartstrings like only he can in this rather extended solo
Sept. 12, 1987
Capital Centre

Jerry rips it hard! powerful return to the chorus after guitar solo
Franklin's Tower
May 5, 1990
California State University Dominguez Hills

If you like listening to Jerry play then you'll like this Franklins, straightens out a somewhat sloppy start of the show!
Black Peter
March 7, 1981
Cole Field House

Drums are kinda swingy, gives the song something, Jerry makes you feel it
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Oct. 28, 1984
Berkeley Community Theatre

Jerry's leads provide serious chills. His playing was on point this entire show


To Lay Me Down
Sept. 22, 1988
Madison Sq Garden

This day in history... had to log in to make sure it was represented here!
Crazy Fingers
July 2, 1989
Sullivan Stadium

awesome phrasing by Jerry in his solo
The Race Is On
Sept. 20, 1993
Madison Square Garden

quintessential Jerry tearing it up backing Bobby vocals. love it
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
Oct. 1, 1994
Boston Garden

Love the pedal steel style licks Jerry plays throughout... definitive version for me. This + So Many Roads + Promised Land to wrap up the set is an emotional roller coaster!
Ship of Fools
Oct. 31, 1985
Carolina Coliseum - University of South Carolina

scrolled through the whole list to make sure this one was on here. should be higher!
