The only review of this recording:
REVIEW: Very solid 1982 show…
This is a great audience recording and a definite archive upgrade of this solid 1982 show. 1st set feature
a strong BEW and a downright top-notch Roses – Jer is poignant in his vocals and solo, the guy was one
of the most honestly soulful performers ever. 2nd set has a blistering
Stranger>Franklin’s>Estimated>Eyes. Guitar work is especially creative in Franklin’s and Eyes. Nice
Space into TOO uses a Dear Prudence reference to segue into Black Peter. Give a listen, underrated
time period, this 1982.
From the Charlie Miller second set soundboard:
REVIEW: Solid set
I wanted this set for years because of the supposed Jam on Dear Prudence. Like Charlie points out, its
more of a tease rather than a jam (read in tapers continuum that it was noteworthy). Anyways highlights
are def Stranger>Franklins. The jams are solid and While Estimated gets the crowd going, Jerry false
starts on He’s Gone before sloppily settling with Eyes. The whole band gets confused for about three
seconds then it falls into place.
REVIEW: Very nice!
Smokin’ Stranger > Franklin’s, and Other One. Great sound, too. That sounds like a Lucy in the Sky
tease, not Dear Prudence, to me…
REVIEW: Standard ’82 fare
Nothing terribly exciting about this one, and I’m a big fan of 82-84. It is interesting to hear the
differences between ’81 and ’82 though. Even at this early point in the year it was already considerably
looser than 1981. I’ve always felt that 1982 was the year that Brent really became a full fledged member
of the band.
REVIEW: Hot little set!
Some great stuff here including a smoldering Franklin’s (one of the best of the 80’s IMO), as well as
killer version of Eyes and The Other One make this worth a listen.
REVIEW: bread crumb
I love the enthusiastic uptake into The Other One.
From another audience recording:
REVIEW: Name that Tease …
That tease sounds like Dear Prudence. Something the Dead never played, although after I heard Jerry do
it at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz, I always wish they did.
Interesting. The tease has elements of Strawberry Fields, Dear Prudence and Lucy In The Sky With
Diamonds at once.
REVIEW: yeah, what they said
smokin’ set, esp. Stranger > Franklins.
REVIEW: Killer show!
Spacey Stranger into a fast over the top Franklins, the Estimated is typically peaky during the 1st jam
and I recall the Eyes is really good. The Estimated Jam into Eye’s I can’t remember. The rest of the
show I don’t remember as much, I think the Other One might be pretty good. The Peak of this show is
the Franklins Tower though, it stands out among other Franklins Towers I’ve heard because there are a
lot of over the top peaky parts where Jerry just lets loose! I was at this show but I don’t remember much
of it, just the unclean JFK blotter with lightning bolts coming out of his eyes and stomach cramps
during the later part of the show. I remember enjoying the show except for the cramps, but that’s about
REVIEW: the Dear Prudence Tease
This was the first show after John Belushi’s death, which seemed to hit the band hard. (the next night in
Davis Micke and Bill did the John Belushi funeral drums). What I recall from that night in Reno was
first the emotion that Jerry poured into Franklin’s Tower. After the Estimated, the band starts to drift
into He’s Gone, but someone “overrules”, and they launch into a wonderful Eyes of the World instead.
(Was He’s Gone too obvious a tribute?) So when the Dear Prudence tease comes up later, only to be
shut down to Jerry, to go into Black Peter as a tribute song, it was almost as if Jerry felt since they
already did Eyes, it was more appropriate to express their anguish in the form of Black Peter. who
knows; it certainly was a scintillating set, demonstrating music is emotion.
REVIEW: WILD SHOW – the boys forgot to play Sat. night
This was really a very odd show – very wild energy. they forgot to play One More Saturday night which
I think most of us only realized later that night. They opened the next night in Davis with it.
REVIEW: that explains it
I was a senior in high school and lost all my friends and was convinced that there were helicopters
flying around in the auditorium. Maybe explained by reno law enforcement being present or maybe i
was one of the exceptionally wasted people. Maybe both. Somehow I found the hotel room. And made
it to Davis for the show the next day where there was an incredible Bird Song.
