Phil's singing is really solid on this one, band doesn't stumble over each other.

Valentine's Day '88 - very fitting for them to close with Lovelight. They played Lovelight at every Valentines show. Great band interplay

Brent's First, the official revival of this song. Bobby forgets some end lyrics but just repeats the first verses to save face. Great Jerry jamming

Slithers out of space & into Dew. Not very intense but Jerry is on it 100%

Really solid version, with good AUD's out there. Long and funky
Samson and Delilah

Alumni Stadium, University of Massachusetts

Just to add more, probably one of the finest Samson's of '79. Band is completely gelled together by the second set, complete fire with this one. Band sounds really great on the Glassberg AUD
