REVIEW: Decent Show
The set list looks good, the Help>Slip>Franklins is good, lot of missed lyrics on Franklins and through out the
show from both Jerry and Bob. GDTRFB didn’t play and skipped right into Sat. Nite, good Satisfaction encore,
would have given more than 3 stars, but the show is kind of sloppy overall.
REVIEW: Good energy but where’s Jerry guitar?
Great work as usual from Hunter on the matrix, and good energy from the band. For some reason, all of the
recordings of this show have some of Jerry’s solos buried in the mix. Otherwise, I’d give 4 stars.
REVIEW: My Favorite
I was at this show and it was crazy. The sound board recording is great but they really pump up the volume in
VA and this show was so powerful and amazing live. Listen to the audience tapes and you’ll see what I mean.
REVIEW: bread crumb
11 years since the last smokestack lightning, and it will be another 18 months before they play it for real. Pretty
cool to have it cooking in the back of someone’s head.
REVIEW: Throwing Stones…in my direction
83 is chock full of fabulous shows, many highlighted by Brent’s magical keyboard work, this show included.
The first set kicks off with a smokin Bertha>Promised, a combo that often serves as a precursor for fireworks to
come. Much love for the Esau, as the Bobby slide guitar always resonates his desire to be the quintessential
bluesman. Got to love the 1st set ending China>Rider and then the 2nd set kick-off Help>Slip>Frank, probably
the only time that combo occurred, and it was on point. The real highlight of this show to me was this jazzy,
trippy rendition of the relatively new at the time Throwing Stones out of Space. The lead in to it was a bit of a
surprise, not until they actually start the song would you have thought that was the post-space song of choice,
absolutely no teaser. As they work thru this version with a tempo not typical of the later versions, it’s the
winding down of the song/ending that really takes the cake. We are so used to the later versions and the
rhythmic drumming and the “ashes, ashes all fall down” chant, but this was something to behold. At around the
7:40 mark of the song you’ll hear and nod/tease of Mind Left Body Jam (see 5/19/74), immediately following
that tease you’ll notice another tease, this time it’s something resembling an uptempo Black Throated Wind
intro. Maybe I’m wrong, maybe I’m right, maybe I’m crazy, but all that matters is, I’m satisfied! A nod to the
encore (I can’t get no) Satisfaction. I probably wouldn’t say this was an all-timer, but it was a damn-gooder!!!
Some nice surprises, 2 of my favorite ballads, Candyman 1st set and Black Peter 2nd, all in all listen and enjoy
