Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
this was an incredible run of shows...second set half step
11
Space
Space jams from summer '85 are legit
11
The Other One
Rapid fire version out of a heady space. Jam is high octane
16
Stella Blue
A great '85 version.
12
Big Railroad Blues
Jerry kicks this into high gear, a smokin' version
14
He's Gone
Sublime. Full heady steam engine coming down the track, check out this deep sounding monster, mellow and contained and nailed
2
Let It Grow
Nice version.
11
Sugar Magnolia
Garcia makes the crowd lose it, an all around great show.
4
Looks Like Rain
Bobby's ad libbing plus a slightly happy ending really suits the show's energy
3
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Nothing like an '85 U.S. Blues!
2
Mexicali Blues
High energy and uptempo coming out of Mama Tried. The whole band sounds great, and Brent and Bobby provide a great rhythm section.

Gimme Some Lovin'
double dose of I-95 summer adolescent escapade brent and phil frat house. Shit hot

Mama Tried
I've always loved this song, particularly when it's uptempo and full like this version. The fire continues onto Mexicali Blues.
