High emotion, very tight...see my accidental description for 3/3/87!
Throwing Stones
March 3, 1987

Jerry soars, Bobby pleads, and the band hits all the stops as if they've practiced it!

Beautiful, just beautiful...I guess most of them are...wait for the note at the peak...

Aug. 18, 1991
Shoreline Amphitheatre

Crank it up, but BE WARNED...some recordings of this have some loud static right as they're in the middle of their closing jam...I was driving along, blasting this one day, and it scared the beejeebus out of me! Still a great version, and well worth the listen though!

Shoreline Amphitheatre

Even tuning is special with Bruce messin' around on keys...by the time Deal kicks off, it's one big barrelhouse stomp...
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Oct. 31, 1991
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

As said above - this entire show is sad, powerful and moving. It's a beautiful tribute to Bill Graham, appropriately on Halloween night.
Throwing Stones

Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center

Sorry...I meant to input 3/23/87...I can't vouch for 3/3/87 either way, but I'll give it a listen soon.
Morning Dew
Sept. 18, 1987
Madison Square Garden

The climax is a "wrong" note that Jer holds and trills until it's beautifully perfect.
