Beauty is also in the ear, too, I guess. I find they are kinda laid back, for the most part, very tight and very
sweet. But don’t think that they don’t get ELECTRIC!. Of the nine versions of this in the Archive, there are
almost no reviews, and these are the only two reviews of the actual music on this date:
REVIEW: Great to see a board of this emerge finally but…
Don’t get discouraged by the first song. You will notice there is another band playing faintly in the background
for first song. (Same ban?) Someone recorded over a tape for this source, but it sounds like it all goes back to
normal after Stranger. Jerry is learning how to stay on the bike through this show. Vince has a good night and
Bralove went easy on feeding Vince cheesy sounds, opting for mostly a organic sounding piano. This health
renaissance from Jerry continued through March 93 and the band found a very mellow sound in this period with
Mickey sticking to Congos and Bongos and the overall stage volume brought down. Bob’e voice begins to show
signs of the problems he would later have after spring 93′ requiring throat surgery to remove nodes on his vocal
chords. He is a little raspy here, and singing at a lower volume which might account for the whole band playing
more glacial and less bombastic.

REVIEW: Just so glad he’s back!
This show was one of those bitter sweet GD moments. It wasn’t a real well played show but it was also
unforgetable to the GD family. For the second time in not so many years Jerry was returning from the brink of
death and which into the great Abyss he dove head first just a few years later. After almost fifteen years what
still sticks in my mind was the look on his face as he tried to reconnect with his guitar and he did so a few times
but there still seemed a air of unfamiliarity about it through most of the show. Then you really saw he made the
connection with all of us as they sang Rain and everbody knew it was Still the Grateful Dead and if we were
patient we would get back most of the ole Jerry we knew before his ill health.
