Seems like Bobby broke a string or something and left the stage for a long time...
Bobby had an equipment tantrum and left the stage. I think it was a MIDI/ electronics prob, I think- a string would have been a quick fix. Anyway, Bobby was clearly pissed.
But Garcia was HOT. The night before he was turning himself down, we could barely hear him some times. But THIS NIGHT, he was kickin' ass and takin' names. That jam before drums was just so awesome... "Jerry's not going in! Jerry's liking this too much!" I remember dancing as hard as I could thinking, "I can keep this up as long as you can, Old Man!"
"When I had no wings to fly, you flew to me"
This show was such a gem - one of my all-time favorites. I think Jerry had just recently got the new composite guitar and like kweeks said, he was crankin' it up baby!!! I remember the show from the night before being weak, and this one just coming out of nowhere to blow us away.
This Stella Blue is one of the best they ever performed - if not THE best, in my humble opinion. Not too many dry eyes in the place when Jerry brought the house down at the end - one of his most passionate performances of all time.
This was one of those beautiful shows that showed just how much Jerry and the boys still had to offer as they approached the 30-year mark, and goes to prove that the post-Brent era wasn't the wash that many people make it out to be.
Alas, this was one of the last few glimpses of Jerry at his absolute finest before the disease took over completely.
Post Brent wasn't a wash just different!!! Loved the Richfield shows. I might have seen every one. Always enjoyed Jerry's ballads, but also enjoyed the fast paced encores as well maybe even more. I would love to see some or even 1 of these runs show up on DVD.
We all felt that when Jerry finished the bridge jam and he hit the last stanza of lyrics he felt the special touch that was that Stella Blue. He was choking away the tears. Did anyone else catch that? That was definitely a special night. Picasso Moon was repeating over and over in my head during the LSD surges while post show partying @ the Holiday Inn.
