30Hey Pocky Way
Great version with plenty of Jerry/ Brent goodness (not a fan of the song? This one may change that)
Loose, vocals could be better, but the playing is very good. Jerry's voice was showing strain at this point. Not a 70s version, but I love the jams.
Compact, very well played, whole band is tight. Bobby nails the vocals.
16When I Paint My Masterpiece
6All New Minglewood Blues
A strong version with hot jam during the break.
A really great version.
Directly after the "Maggie's" from Postcards of the Hanging...this version is near perfect!!!
'87 is full of tight versions, but this is about as rock solid as they come. Roaring climax!
7New Minglewood Blues
Supurb! One of my all time favorites. See on Youtube.
The Postcards version, scalding hot into an equally hot Cumberland to open set 2
8West L.A. Fadeaway
Brent is just stellar accompniament and Jerry is killing it. Seek out the Charlie Miller version as per usual. This is one hot West LA.
4Looks Like Rain
awesome bobby rap, solid version through out.
One of my favorite shows from '87. The whole thing is filled with energy and power, and this is no exception.
