Bird Song
Hornsby's first "Bird Song" as a member is nearly 15 minutes of bliss. Nice harmonies, too.

All Along the Watchtower
Scorching. Just flipping through the 1990 Garden run. Surprised this ain't here already. Bruce's 1st official night as a member of the band.

Stella Blue
Jerry flubs the cheap hotel, but it's OK. His guitar makes up for it. Check out last couple minutes. Builds beautifully. Just a notch below 9/19.

Uncle John's Band
Fiery, galloping build up. Maybe this was overshadowed by the 9/19 version, but this one rips.

Touch of Grey
First one after Brent's death. First one with Bruce being officially part of the gang. Pretty significant. Felt like we'd probably survive...

Holy cow. Wow. Scorches. So does the Candyman. And this is followed by a beautiful Masterpiece.
