It's All Over Now Baby Blue

San Francisco Civic Auditorium

The capper to a rather sad show Otis passed earlier in the day and Bobby is a mess. This melancholy ballad fits the mood and Jerry brings the passion.

Love the tambourine sound in the beginning and love Jerry throwing in a few extra rips during some of his parts. Bob goes full rock star at one point.

This one musically is fantastic. It’s played so well. It’s a shame the lyrics aren’t as strong. Particularly weir who seems to be signing too loud

Well sung by Jerry. One Minor flub but what’s sung is clean and crisp. Playing is nice engaging opener played well.

Somehow missed this one all these years. Always a welcome addition to a set list.

Foolish Heart

A bit of a lyrical mess but it’s made up for with some sick ass jamming. Brent in particular lays down some nice runs. First set just keeps cranking out openers after starting with this rather rare as an opener tune to start the show. Not the best version but worth a listen for the jamming and fast aggressive pace. The boys came to rock on this evening.

Very underrated. Brent is especially on fire during the early parts of this show. Almost of the rails version but in a good way. Jerry and Brent are attacking this song in a rather aggressive way. Should have more votes.

This is a spectacular version only a fool would discount 1989-90 dead. Even the band members are on record with how great they were playing at that point. Many fantastic tunes during that time. I prefer the 70s but acting like they never did anything great after any year before jerry passed is just asinine.

Very nice especially the space segment.

Pretty ignorant for the poster below to open an account just to make an ignorant freaking comment. Glad I had the accidental extra posts to edit so I could comment above the fool.
