REVIEW: This was not the pick of the litter
I was at Friday and that really rocked – comes a time> other one was cool but for the most part this is slow and
trippy – tight and listenable – parts of this are on go to nassau
REVIEW: Go To Nassau
None of this show was used for Go To Nassau. I was at this show, felt it was kinda laid back, but fun. I agree
that the 3rd night of the run was the best by far.
REVIEW: comes a time
very heart felt version of Comes a Time. I’ve always like the Strangers from this decade as well.
REVIEW: comes a time
now i was never at any dead shows but damn jerry was just burnin my ears of on that comes a time, i would say
this is a much better version then the sun dome.
REVIEW: let it grow into althea
this blend of Let It Grow into Althea is so amazing. i wish they did it more and also that this recorded version
didn’t cut right as they blend into each other. love the Easy To Love, too. and if this wasn’t a great night for you
who were there, you are spoiled! :-)also, amazed you remember the shows so vividly! that was near 30 years
ago, and you speak as if it was yesterday!
REVIEW: My 3rd show
I’ve always loved this show, mainly The Music Never Stopped and Sugaree. They were on fire!!!
REVIEW: oh wowie !
hey i just realized — this was my first GD show, ever !! i was in tenth grade …… i kept coming kept so i must’ve
liked it …i remember the very first notes — of alabama getaway — something the way it sounded, right out of the
gate … I “knew” instantly.
REVIEW: Very strong show
This is a very good sounding show, and it has some very good playing. Particularly the Sailor->Saint and the Let
REVIEW: bread crumb
It’s just so hard to find anything substantively wrong with any show from this era. Well played, full of energy
and the occasional surprise – Stranger > Sugaree?
