Let It Grow
March 28, 1984
Marin County Veterans Auditorium
First show of '84. Absolutely insane LIG, and one of the fastest. Phil bombs, Brent synths.
Way To Go Home
April 4, 1994
Outstanding performance. Like a mix of CSNY and Sammy Hagar with the Dead.

Bobby guitar solo included. Great groove to this one.

Shut your eyes and listen to the colors of your mind. This song is a guilty pleasure for me, so I've checked out quite a few, and this one is hot.

Jerry is pretty absent for most of the song (it sounds like he was trying to get the steel drum MIDI set on his rig), but the rest of the band absolutely kills it. Vince does some great work here. When Jer finally kicks it into gear, the jam starts to go to some interesting places.

Autzen Stadium, U. of Oregon
This is a stand-out for sure. This whole show is probably the best of 1994.

This performance contains the best Phil I have heard on a Dew. The appropriate amount of Phil Bombs this song deserves.
