I myself prefer the Paul Scotton recording, so here it is.Three recordings
circulate; these are most of the very few applicable reviews…
These reviews are from the original Paul Scotton recording, tonight’s broadcast:
REVIEW: Sweet spot
I’m normally not fond of audience recordings from the Warfield – a little too
echoey for my taste – but this one really hits the “sweet spot”. Kudos to the
taper, and to the band for putting aside apoliticism for this one night (or not –
nothing political about survival). Good show all around.
REVIEW: Wavy Gravy
I’m pretty sure that’s Wavy Gravy doing the no-nukes intro in this San
Francisco acoustic set. I like these acoustic sets. This one isn’t as good as those
of the fall of 1980, and the recording isn’t all that great, but this was still a
delight to find here. One interesting aspect is that instead of Phil on electric
bass, we have John Kahn on acoustic bass. My favs here are Deep Elem,
Cassidy (always nice acoustic), a pretty To Lay Me Down, and the jamming
REVIEW: Love acoustic Dead
For some reason this doesn’t seem to have the ‘oomph’ of the 80 sets but still a
joy to listen to.
These reviews are from the Charlie Miller remaster, while tonight’s broadcast
is from the original Paul Scotton recording:
REVIEW: Not quite five…
But this is very special! I sure wish these post-Radio City acoustic sets were
soundboards. This is pretty rough, but the music here is fantastic! Cassidy is
wildly jammed and this To Lay Me Down is extraordinary!
REVIEW: oh boy!!
wow, check out the ripple—>drumz—->oh boy!
