Opened with Shakedown. Appropriate number for the earthquake relief show. The house was truly rockin.

What's so funny about peace love and understanding?

Standing on the Moon

I did not attend this show, but I do have a high quality tape. This is the most incredible "Standing" I could ever imagine. Not to mention the rest of the show is just excellent.

Also - Anyone reading this interested in trading tapes - Have Nakamichis will mail - just like the old days. Of course in the old days you couldn't get a Nakamichi for $95 on Ebay either... msg me here or

Great show, interesting jams with band members really listening

I remember attending this show and noticing the band really listening to each other, leading to some interesting twists to familiar songs and jams. I also remember a Mississippi Half Step in the set list but I must be thinking of another show. ;-)
