Bobby’s wireless has some problems in Hell in a Bucket and the first few notes of Sugaree. They are the
worst, but his problems continue in Bird Song, Scarlet Begoinas and Fire on the Mountain. After Fire,

These are the only three reviews on this soundboard of the three sources in the Archive:
REVIEW: great feel
this show has a differnet/nice feel, with some great keys thruout. Scarlet/fire was on.
REVIEW: Top notch.
Very solid show. Really nice pretty keyboards throughout and pretty tight Jerry leads most of the time
as well. The organ on Walkin’ Blues is stellar and it shines on Friend also. Amusing false start/do over
on Masterpiece. Sweet subtle jam with heavy Other One teasing coming out of He’s Gone. Really great
slightly funky jamming in-between drums and space so make sure you listen if you are usually inclined
to skip over them. Clean sound, a few glitches of static, but only between songs. The vocal levels seem
a little high, especially Bobby’s, but that is nothing an equalizer shouldnt be able to fix.
REVIEW: Blackie? This is Brownie…..I’ve got the line.
Both sets. Hot. Vince is amazingly right on. The 1st set is one the best of the entire year, IMO.
Scarlet/Fire is a jamming’ one.
These are reviews of a nice aud recording:
REVIEW: Massive Energy
No Hornsby on this one, but Jerry fills the gap admirably with some truly inspired playing. This show
also features solid ensemble work throughout, with a spectacular Scarlet/Fire and meatier-than-usual
sound. Highly recommended.
REVIEW: Dont let little amount of reviews fool you
Thiis is a spectacular show. Masterpiece really gets it going. Bobby starts it off playing in too high of a
key. A few lyrics in they stop the song dead. Who else could/would stop a song in a live show, and
restart it. Only the Grateful Dead could and get away with it. It brings out some incredible energy, and
lasts thru the end of the show. Second set carried the energy thru.
REVIEW: Vintage Spring 91
Super performance. This is about as good as it gets from ’91 on. I like me a good smokin Cumbys and
this one doesn’t dissapoint. As another said earlier – yeah, the Masterpiece does actually crank the show
up instead of down a notch. Nice 2nd set drums/jam. Even the often leaden A&A is lively and
REVIEW: More goods post-Brent.
Good aud recording. Great first set. All songs are well played w/ a brisk feel to each. Sugaree,
Mexicali>Cumberland, and Masterpiece are wonderful versions no matter what year you are comparing
these songs to. Vince and Bobby are mixed in far better than the previous nights SBD copies. Vince
seems like an asset to the Band in this early stage versus a lil’ further on down the road when his
keyboards and voice would seem to drown out the rest of the Band’s sound. The more confident Vince
became, the less I could listen to this band then and now. That comment aside, this is nothing but a
REVIEW: such a fun show
I really like this one, and the playing ranges from solidly good to smoking hot. All the highlights other
reviewers cite are there, and the Mighty Quinn is about the rockin’est one I know of. This was a happy,
upbeat, energetic show. Things went into decline soon enough, but the good times were definitely still
at hand here.
REVIEW: I love this ’91 show
Beginning to end great show after brent years. My personal fav from friend to end of 1st set.
