REVIEW: It WAS Sat. Night
So I knew going in OMSN would either end the show or be the encore. Never a problem
REVIEW: Pretty good show!
I was listening to this because I am really interested in the history of the Uptown Theater
in Chicago (which is empty and decaying, but still impressively large from the outside).
And because I like the Dead. Not a bad show. Has some good moments
REVIEW: I think Garcia was extremely stoned.
The show is remarkable: genius, but extremely mellow right up until the three Bobby
rock’n’roll song ending. The jams are sublime, but all the songs that usually have dramatic
peaks are lacking in that kind of variation on this night, and this is mostly Garcia’s fault.
He sounds very spaced out and introspective, but beautiful.
REVIEW: Almost A Five Star Show…But Not Quite.
This is a very, very, very GOOD show. I want so bad to give it five stars I could scream,
but having Stella, R&R, and OMSN on the same night just doesn’t cut it. In general, the
show skirts the X Factor outer boundries. But having the above ending kills all hope for a
fifth star. The Space into OO is spectacular, and the whole show is solidly played and
well sung. But damn. Youz Guyz came sooo close.
REVIEW: from the northwest corner of a brand new crescent moon
WOW, this is one of the best renditions of Terrapin I have ever heard! Seriously! Just got
this whole run and though there are sloppy moments, when they are on they are ON.
Check out the second set from this show! And the second set from the 26th as well, with
the extended jam out of He’s Gone!
REVIEW: Great show!
Lovin the candyman and althea
REVIEW: Best of the run
My favourite among three Uptown shows being the longest one. Nice set list, and
Terrapin here is a true gem. Hazy and with dreamy vocals it lulls you into the state of
trance and then nice jamming follows which then crashes into Drums. Sound quality: A
REVIEW: Nice Show.
This show has killer sound and perhaps my favorite Ship of Fools. Jerry’s voice, as well
as the bacground vocals, simply sound amazing on that song. The Lost
Sailor/Circumstance is also quite nice.
REVIEW: utterly suberb……….
this show is unbelievably crisp, clear, energetic and just one complete amazing..jerry
sounds a plays amazingly, the band is tight as a drum…..example of early 80’s best of the
best…i must say this is a 5 star special………
REVIEW: Spectacular Let it grow
Not sure how anyone can take issue with anything about this show it freeking rocks start
to finish. Space into Other One takes forever ;)and Brent sounds like Keith Emerson on
Again, you get the picture…
