The only two reviews of this recording:
REVIEW: A Restored Gem
So great to have guys like CM and JHS re-mastering these old tapes and making them sound
This is a nearly three hour show with a stellar set-list with generally strong execution in playing.
First set is tight and Shakedown could be as good as the NYE 84′ performance. Bobby batches half
the lyrics in Lazy Lightnin’ but Supplication comes out blazing with fearless intensity, certainly
making up for some campy vocal flubs. Deal is mean and long! Scarlet>Fire>Estimated>Eyes.
This one is quality.Stellar Morning Dew>Throwing Stones. After the sheer awesomeness of the
Dew, its hard to follow up, which is probably why Dew settled in the second set closing slot
eventually. Stones is nearly near the peak of getting its mature jam settled(happens somewhere on
Summer 84 tour), but has an eery feel to it.
Thanks for the update!

REVIEW: Fantastic recording of a Fantastic night.
This sounds like you are there, to my ear it’s perfect. And the Music? We are taken to the Ineffable
‘world’ of Music itself. I was eighteen and on ~ 1,000 mics, I’m back there/then when listening to

Reviews of Mr. Charlie’s soundboard:
REVIEW: Take a whole pail of water to cool him down
Very nice sound quality to this SBD..I like the setlist to this show..You can’t go wrong starting with
a hot Shakedown..Bobby and Jerry rip the Hell in a Bucket but by Throwing Stones Bobby’s voice
is shot..Nice Lazy Lightning>Supplication>Deal to end 1st set..I love the 2nd set from start to
finish..High energy and smoking right to the end..so please GIVE IT A WHIRL

REVIEW: beautiful mix
wont find a better, balanced mix — good shakedown street, but show really comes alive w/ a
monster deal set closer and extremely high energy scarlet-fire… among the show hilites is a killer
baby blue encore.

REVIEW: Good Solid Show
Nothing over the top but well played, No Highlights.

There are no reviews of either of the two audience recordings supplied.
