There are no reviews of this soundboard in the Archive, and of the three auds, these are the only
reviews of one of them:
REVIEW: Cool down
Well these shows were quite a cool down from Hampton 1989. Fun but man we kind of wondered why
they put us through the trouble of being so secretive about them when they ended up being so mediocre.
This Corinna is not bad. By the way, Hornsby was a member of the Grateful Dead through the end of
this tour so this one was not a drop in like the JGB Hampton show the year before.
REVIEW: docks of the RIVER
YES! that corrina did reach out and get me freaking out -during the JAM listen for Garcia hitting these
octave blasts -I remember that exact moment, and where I was in the hallways, and the smiles I was
looking at, and the jolts of musical bliss that went through me. But it is this Wharf Rat that rocked me-
as well as being a great one,i specifically hearing Garcia sing the original “way down down…down by
the docks of the river” that Hunter wrote. And that was the way he sung it at the first time played
2.18.71 portchester. That’s my quick in-put. The shows in the south east around this era when the G.D.
came fairly close to Bruce’s home and he’d decide to come out and energize the band and the music
were exciting and usually GREAT. A decent 3 to 3 1/2 audience recording. the boominess of that venue
made hot audiences tough. my master tapes probably sound exactly the same-but I haven’t busted open
my G.D. trunk in years.The Bird Song is well above average and jazzy. 4 to 4 1/2 star performance
REVIEW: The ship has landed
Living in VA for the greater part of my early Dead years I attended many Hampton shows, in fact my
first show was the opening spring show in Hampton ’85…the point is this…even though this is not the
best Hampton show I saw (second Warlocks show Fall 89), it is still rockin’. The boys might not have
been “into it” but they still could blow the roof off the joint. It has been 20 years and I still get the
goosebumps listening to this show…Thanks Boys!
REVIEW: Very fine show for 1992
Reading the other reviews, and having been at this show, I listened to it again today to see what I
thought. This a nice show. Epic? No. But not bad either so, I disagree with other who suggested as
much. Sometimes, it’s not the set list but, how they play the songs that is the hook. In this show, it’s the
opposite…it’s the song selection that rocks even if the performance isn’t mind-blowing. Who would
argue that a show featuring a Stranger-Friend of the Devil opening, Maggie’s Farm, Bird Song 1st set
closer, New Speedway Boogie 2nd set opener, pre-drums Truckin’-Crazy Fingers, Last Time out of
Space, and The Weight encore isn’t a great, unique set list! I remember that being what we loved about
this show…it was unpredictable. So, I give it a thumbs up. Oh..and Bruce is totally in his element playing
and singing some of these tunes!
