Another solid show, thing I remember most was that the jam midway in Fire went on sooooo long, that I was sure they were going into another song. Way cool, when Jerry came back for the final verse.
After the previous night we slowed down things considerably. I loved the first set it had a rare mid set Lazy Lightnin' Peggy-O, Far from Me was great and then a excellent Music. A monster Scarlet >Fire and by now I was tired. I actually sat down during Lost Sailor, I know what a whimp, but when you tour you have to learn the art of pacing yourself and not blowing your load and over indulging.I can not give your greater details of post drumz, sorry.I have not been able to hear a tape of this show since and would like to.I am sure I would appreciate it more now than then. The only double encore of the tour so you know the band was happy.
the double encore was unreal and the music never stopped at the end of the first set...it just went on and on and on and on...one of the best moments of my life. Great venue, great seat on the side and dancing in the aisles. clouds in the air. nobody having a bad night at that show!
Such excitement on this tour, such a desperate desire to get in from those that lacked tickets...Through a trick of fate, a door was popped open just before show time, and many people who were sure they were shut out couldn't believe their luck, and poured in; a few kindly souls stopping on their way in to pop open the remaining closed doors in that area, allowing a massive flow into the venue from that side of the parking lot. There was electric excitement in the air that night, due in no small part (I am sure) to the happiness of those who got in through the opened doors. And then the band opened with Alabama Getaway, and something about not having the sense to run...I always wondered if they knew what had gone down...?
That's Me up in the rafters out of my mind believeing in my heart of hearts Jerry was playing to me.
