26Let It Grow
I don't believe this one's not represented!! 22 minutes long, Brent's first, Jerry's jammin at warp speed....slowing into powerful drums
Holy crap....how did I miss this show? Beautiful, soaring version from a very "on" night for Jer and the boys
Maine shows were always top notch, no different here with an excellent version of Stagger Lee.
They totally screw up the lyrics, but once they hit “Get back Truckin’ On” wow it rocks, the first peak is very powerful, then a second peak.
A sublime treat. A kinder, gentler Terrapin. Great sounding vocals leading into a monster LIG
The crowd sure is fired up for this one.
2Drums -> Space
What sounds like a momentary Let It Grow tease in Space, if you’re listening for something in particular. Powerful and pure Grateful Dead.
2They Love Each Other
Brent goes funky with his solo, then Jerry goes lyrical.
2New Minglewood Blues
1Jack A Roe
Very tight, funky version. Early Brent shines.
