R.I.P. Brent…7/26/90

From this recording:
REVIEW: A Snapshot Of Early Digital Personification
Remarkable remaster of a remarkable recording of a screaming out loud I am alive I am a wish to end my life

REVIEW: excellent 3-nite run!!!
These were some great Chi-town shows…RIP BRENT!!

REVIEW: Jay Ashley…..King Midas
Gold! Thank you, Mr. Ashley, once again.

REVIEW: biodtl
i think they all forgot how many beats to start the song with, and were just waiting for bobby to just start singing
already. as far as the show, tremendous! sublime estimated > eyes, awesome post drums.

From other recordings:
REVIEW: Box o’ Rain opener….3.5 stars
Box of Rain opener! It rained during the second set on the 21st….was it raining for the start of this show?
Unfortunately, the unique placement doesn’t make up for Phil’s weak vocals. Otherwise, tight playing
throughtout this show. First set higlights are BIODTL (a rarity for ’90!) and a sweet Masterpiece!! Sound quality
is excellent for the instrumentals, but vocal pickup is fair to poor on several songs, which will annoy some
TapeHeads. Is there a good AUD copy out there? As I recall, the WMT didn’t have the best acoustics….Haven’t
listened to the second set all the way through yet…but it will take a strong finish to give this more than 3 and 1/2

REVIEW: The Best of Tinley Park
By concensus of everyone I spoke to who saw all 3 shows at Tinley Park, this was easily the best. I agree with
that. All due respect to Relix Magazine rating the next night in the years top ten and not this or either of the
preceding Deer Creek shows, but that was likely due to 7-23-90 being Brent’s last show. All 3 audience
recordings I heard of this show were of awful pitch (out of batteries at the end of tour guys?)

REVIEW: A few memories about these shows
You know its funny. I saw most of this whole tour and at the time I was thinking that it really wasnt their best.
Then when Brent died a few weeks later, I started to appreciate what I was taking for granted earlier. For anyone
who hasnt been there, Tinley Park is a three story steel and cement amphitheater. (Thats right a floor level with
a lawn and 3 stories of seats) It definitely made me miss the Poplar Creek shows in the past. Anyway, the only
thing I remeber about these shows was crappy sound and a dusty parking lot. One thing I have to say though, I’m
not from Chicago but they definitely are a fun crowd, most energetic anywhere outside of the Philly to Boston
zone. Damn I missed Brent after these shows! Without him around Jerry seemed to forget how to play.

REVIEW: Great Show!
This was my second ever Dead show, the first being at the greatest ampitheater Alpine Valley the year before.
Ironically they pulled a wicked 180 and played the worst ampitheater the year after! I have yet to meet anyone
who actually likes the World Music Theater. The security, sound, parking, location, etc. all sucks. Needless to
say this show was jammed with energy and an amazing set list. Highlights had to be the emotion Brent threw
down for Far From Me and a high energy Hey Pockey Way. Sadly it would be the last we would hear of either
tune. This was by far the best of the three nights

REVIEW: 7-22-90
Good show after Box of Rain. Phil must have had too many beers or something. IMO Phil doesn’t have a good
voice but I love to hear him sing. He usually projects his emotion for a song very well.

REVIEW: pretty strong 90’s
Hey this show picks up more steam as it goes on. Goes to show that Bret was on fire by the end of 90….

There are no less than thirteen versions of this date in the Archive, and very few reviews again, other than the
crappy venue, the crappy location, or Brent’s passing.

R.I.P. Brent
