Reviews just from this one recording…you get the picture…
REVIEW: Great 2nd set!!
These shows were just warm ups to the end of the month, as everyone knows, but the Box o’ Rain is a
wonderful, wonderful version and the Foolish Heart is probably the best one out there–really: Just listen to the
beginning intro. to the song…When you have the headphones on with this one, you can hear the Billy and
Mickey come in individually onto the beat (actually one is even on the odd beats for the first four bars or so, and
then so slightly blends right in on the snare and bass rythem). Epic! Jerry flubs once or twice on the song, but it
is a monster of a version and Phil is just going on this one too…worth the price of admission just to hear that
beginning over and over again.
REVIEW: Good one
From the FM feed it was awesome sounds…..my hometown shows………..Box-foolish rules…me love this show
REVIEW: Spring 90′
Wow this show just has the vibe that the previous night lacked. I really love the first set. One of the coolest
Browneyed women ever. Deal is hot. Second set is fantastic. Phil opens with Box and his Base is Heavy all
through the set especially Foolish Heart which is one of my favorites. Might give a slight edge to 3-28 Nassua
though. Nice 80’s style fast paced Eyes into the Drums. Out of Space China Doll-Gimme Some
Lovin-GDTRFB-Around And Aound is killer. After Brents Death you never got those high energy post Drumz
segments. Brokedown Encore capps of a great show. Hartford had good sound To Bad the boys were banned
from some of those smaller areanas like Hartford and Hampton
REVIEW: tight tight tight
This is a fine show, full of jamming that reflected the group dynamic the band had this tour. The Foolish and
post-Eyes jams are some of the most professional and focused out there. This show is overshadowed by some
real monsters, but make no misktake this is an excellent performance don’t miss it
The Foolish Heart is very, very nice. Beautiful pre-last-verse solo, upbeat and skippy with several catchy
Garciaphrases. From there, what can one say? The Eyes is sick; it’s akin in a way to the intro from 10.15.89 – the
boys are drumming HARD and Eyes begins tumbling and cascading – a nice version without a doubt. Box of
Rain to finish the first set, Bucket opener, definitely a satisfying download.
REVIEW: fantastic show!
Wow. What a show. The boys are smoking the whole night here. Download this show. Key songs are Hell in a
Bucket, Deal, Foolish Heart, EYES!!!!, China Doll, GDTRFB, something seemed to happen to the sound at the
end of Around and Around. The rest is beautiful sound
REVIEW: Rockin start to finish
I think this show is probably the most underrated of the Spring ’90 run. The BEST Foolish Heart the boys ever
played IMO (and trust me, I’ve listened to them all). Phil’s playing his bass like a lead guitar during Foolish –
just crazy. Trippy, sick second set and the sound is awesome.
REVIEW: Consistently great!
This is one of the great second sets of 1990, and even Around and Around is huge. The band plays this one like
they mean it, and there isn’t a low light in the run.
REVIEW: Great Show! two days of rumors, many different names.
We waited two days for tickets to go on sale for these surprise shows. It was to be The Warlocks or The Bay city
all-stars,or Bobby Ace and the cards off the bottom,or anything else that would
get us a ticket. After two days we went back to RI. No sooner then we got back we heard tix were
on sale. One high speed drive back and we had 2nd night. A great show well worth the wait.
REVIEW: Good show. GREAT Bertha and Eyes
This Eyes is unreal. I’ve had the jam towards the end stuck in my head for the past week. Maybe someone who
knows more about music can tell me is that Brent or Jerry doing those amazing sounds? It sounds like Brent on
keys but I am not sure. It is easily one of the best things in 1990 – I am not exaggerating about this. Also Foolish
Heart is great and an EXCELLENT Bertha. Pretty much every March 1990 show is good as far as I’ve gotten.
