Franklin's Tower
Feb. 5, 1989
Henry J Kaiser Convention Center

Soon after "If you get confused listen to the music play" I got confused as I mistook Bob's notes for a catfight.
Samson and Delilah
Dec. 11, 1979
Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall

Too bad missing portion towards end as whole band -especially Brent- fired up!
Picasso Moon
Sept. 7, 1990
Richfield Coliseum

Band builds momemtum througout 1st set to where even meh tunes like Picasso Moon and U.S. Blues are dialed in!
Row Jimmy
Aug. 13, 1987
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Whole band particularly Phil doing this lovely song justice. Jerry such a nice cascading solo.
Let It Grow
Aug. 11, 1987
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Don't normally think of '87 as strong jamming year but various LIGs suggest otherwise. Every member contributes grately!


The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo)
March 3, 1987
Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center

Song's writer had to catch a flight so couldn't attend for long. Bet he dug it!
West L.A. Fadeaway
July 3, 1984
Starlight Theatre

My nof-fave-sounding synth mixed a little high at Phil's expense, but Bobby's tasty licks make up for it.
Doin' That Rag
Aug. 30, 1969
Family Dog at the Great Highway

"Haunting swagger" a perfect description.
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Aug. 18, 1991
Shoreline Amphitheatre

Samson is between Deal and Half Step. (Things get Stranger)
He's Gone
Aug. 17, 1991
Shoreline Amphitheatre

While never hitting sweet spot, outro jam has various interesting directions.
