Love will N.F.A



Touch of Grey
Dec. 17, 1992
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

Well sung by Jerry. One Minor flub but what’s sung is clean and crisp. Playing is nice engaging opener played well.
Ollin Arageed
Dec. 30, 1986
Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center

Somehow missed this one all these years. Always a welcome addition to a set list.
Mexicali Blues
Aug. 31, 1983
Silva Hall - Hult Center for the Performing Arts

Nice cowboy psychedelia. Jerry giving the notes that extra little punch and Bobby sings with gusto. Nice after a perfunctory me and my uncle
Aug. 31, 1983
Silva Hall - Hult Center for the Performing Arts

Like the way this one slithers out of space like a snake very creative intro rising from the ashes. Crowd gets involved.
Little Red Rooster
Aug. 26, 1980
Cleveland Public Auditorium

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


I Know You Rider
July 17, 1989
Alpine Valley Music Theatre

Maybe the best rider ever. I think it is clearly the best rider of the Brent era.
Me and My Uncle
Feb. 20, 1971
Capitol Theater

This is a nice energized version of a song that would somstimes get phoned in. Not here. Crackling with energy.
May 2, 1981
The Spectrum

Nice mellow beautiful playing well sung. A great Althea.
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
July 3, 1978
St. Paul Civic Center Arena

This is a very different sounding fire. Truly some cool different tones and textures.please check it out. Followed by a pretty amazing funky dancing in the streets.
Touch of Grey
March 3, 1987
Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center

A touch fast but sung excellently and clear as can be. Peppy and energetic. Deserves to be on the list and to have more votes.
