My favorite show ever was this night...

So much is missing here with regard to notes to the show.

This was the night TC was a guest in the second set. I will update another time, but this is a night the dead were reported to be dosed, and they are lucky they were, because it was the best night of the hundreds I've seen. Was about 12th row center.

1st set....Highlights

Beat it on down the line
I know you Rider
Cumberland Blues
Box of Rain (Never caught on tape, but was played with Joshua Light Show showing a Box of Rain traveling through fields, lakes and mountains) be continued

2nd Set .... Highlights

Morning Dew
Cryptical Envelopment
Dark Star
St. Stephen
Not Fade Away
Going Down the Road
Sugar Magnolia

I never came down from this show.

The Quintet

Forty years ago, they were five. The eight-month period between Mick's departure & Keith's arrival is remembered - in the East at least - in the fondest of terms. The skull and roses album is a product of that time, which featured a touring repertoire some wits have described as "psychedelic cowboys". Jerome & Bob had solo projects that worked their way into the band's book - some great tunes - and the boys were all in fine voice then. Pig was still relatively robust and the band had one foot in their beginnings and one in their middle. Things were fresh, energetic, exploratory and extra-long!
