Nice cowboy psychedelia. Jerry giving the notes that extra little punch and Bobby sings with gusto. Nice after a perfunctory me and my uncle

Like the way this one slithers out of space like a snake very creative intro rising from the ashes. Crowd gets involved.

A very rare second set little red rooster. Snarled out by Bobby early version. Jerry really seems engaged. Has that extra punch.

Very well done sung with some real passion. Clear clean vocals by Jerry nice build up on the short little jam. Sweet version

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.

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.
