Reviews from this recording:
REVIEW: Very Good!
This is very good. Very good sound, and a high energy, high quality ’83 show (which means there are a couple
bumps along the way–Esau). However, the boys, especially Jerry, showed up to ROCK. Birdsong, Shakedown,
Eyes..even Black Peter.
REVIEW: good 83
was expecting it to be a little but hotter but i cant complain it still smokes, great song selection, all well played
REVIEW: come to expect
from metal tapes, bright highs slight twang
REVIEW: Yet Another Rango Gem…
…that i missed before while scouring these vaulted annals. Phew! How ’bout that? Slick as a whistle. This show
is quite a find. ‘Tis a pleasing rendition of the ambient available joyful noise present there that afternoon in the
great outdoors at lovely Stanford Frost. Excellent audience recording. All colors of the sound spectrum are
well-defined. Kudos to Mssr’s Keshavan & Miller. Thanks, gents. The band’s performance is what the band’s
performance usually was even on a bad night: superb. And as usual to me each tune was competently displayed.
REVIEW: So What.
Never noticed it before but around the 11:30 to the 12:25 minute mark of Estimated it almost sounds like the So
What jam and or a little bit like the Jam in Don’t Let Go. Had to click back and relisten . Over all these 2 nights
were better then the Ventura shows the end of July.
As always the sound quality is right up there with any other great sounding aud tape. In other words I LOVE IT
REVIEW: Great Recording by a Kind Brother
Yet another great recording of a very good who by my old friend, Rango. Excellent job, bro!
REVIEW: Upbeat Eyes
Another Alabama Getaway opener (cf. 10-09-82)! toylike tinkly sound to keys in They Love Each Other ~3:00.
Heavy Birdsong jam 6:30ff. Sound quality of the tape is pretty thin. Nice heavy Ten. lead up to ending 6:30ff.
Nice jam in Estimated (11:00ff.). Spunky/speedy tempo Eyes. Not much outstanding, but good show.
REVIEW: bread crumb
the end of Alabama Getaway is unusual and unique, at least to my ear, to this point in time. Frost brought out
the weirdness in the drummers the year before as well.
Quite a version. Excellently played show
