Shakedown Street
Brent's first show. Encore. PHIL!...'nuff said
4
Passenger
Brent's first show RIPS, and this is a prime example
11
Jack Straw
Brent's 1st song with the band. Multiple Lesh bombs, rollicking drums, smoking Jerry licks, and impassioned vocals. Fine welcome to the band!
4
Brown Eyed Women
2 Drummer breakbeat attack with Phil throwing down the rope a dope and Jer firing darts - this one's lively.
6
Estimated Prophet
Massive Attack by the entire band from 3:30 - 5:30 - sneakers in the dryer and all.
3
New Minglewood Blues
Fiery as per the era but it's the RD's that crush this one to dust - check sbd.
2
Drums
The debut of Mickey's beast with lots of interesting percussion going on. Also someone briefly singing!
3
Good Lovin'
A fun rendition from Brent’s first show. Check it out!
4
I Need A Miracle
Lively version with plenty of Phil bombs from a seriously underrated show. Almost makes you forget how rote this song got a few years later.
5
Sugaree
Mr. Lemieux, if you're listening, this show deserves a look! Brent's debut and nice energy throughout, as evidenced by this Sugaree!

Tennessee Jed
Follows a thunderous and fullPHILing Jack Straw!!! Brent's first show is a great one...

Bertha
Out of an excellent Miracle 2nd set opener.
