Hey Bob and Frog,
Yeah me too... We happy few!
Like you said, a barn of a place with dodgy acoustics, but something happened in set 2 which took us way beyond those limitations, and all these years we've been so blessed to have the best portion of it on the Glastonbury Revelations album.
Set 1: business as usual in the 1st half, professional, solid but holding back. Stretch out a bit on Tenn Jed. Playing jam begins around 3:30 mark, fast & furious, but still w/in the main theme, 10:30 overall, very nice Playing. Strong Good Lovin’. LL Rain, early version, Jerry’s notes quite different playing the steel pedal, more country. Set ends with Casey.
Highlights: Playing, Good Lovin’
Set 2: Again opens with Truckin’ (# 1 in Turlock), nice jam, good version. Hurts Me Too, lugubrious, very enjoyable. Dark Star: great opening jam, return to main theme at 10:30, 1st verse at 11:30, 2d jam stars slow then speeds up into hyperspace, landing on a serene but strange body before rocketing back into chaos and finding nirvana (in a beautiful jam) around the 28:00 mark, and proceeding into a Sugar-Mag like jam (AWESOME Dark Star) which of course leads into Sugar Mag itself. Sugar Mag goes into Caution, which is hot from the get-go. Show ends w/ Sat Night.
Highlights: Dark Star, Caution
Overall: VG show, 8.5/10. Band is definitely on but coasts during much of set 1 (ex. BE Women, 1 run in the solo, nothing special). But everything is at least solid and the highlights are hot, especially the monster Dark Star.
