Fillmore East

Intimate version. Bob is high in the mix and brilliant. Vocals are living room intimate. Band is listening to itself in heartrending fashion.

Great ensemble playing. Clean, perfect into. Stellar sensitive vocal from Jerry. Uncrowded show with maybe 25-30 rows of chairs on the floor, and the back 5-10 were practically empty. Lots of folks leaving before the end, easy to sit close to the stage. Lots of shorter songs. Next night, 11/21/73, was packed and bristling with energy.

This has the intimate feel that started during the acoustic set. Both in Jerry's vocals, and in the ensemble playing. Feels like they're in a living room playing by the fire. Stellar version. Stellar intimate show. Lucky audience.

Jerry sings it like his mind was wanderin', like the snow geese in the sky. Plaintive and phenomenally emotive. This entire Capitol Theatre show has a level of intimacy that starts with the acoustic set and doesn't stop when they plug in. This is the holy grail of shows. Lucky audience and lucky us for Ken and Judy Lee's great audience recording. Listen to the source with the most downloads.

Yeah, this is 10/4/70, and the 12/17/70 date apparently came from the date the quad tapes were mixed. 'Massive attack factor' is a perfect description. I sang this song in my band in 1972, and this version was my inspiration. Mickey's hits at the end always thrill.
