Lots of audience on this matrix rec. But it's a COLISEUM and arena too. I've never been to it but I have been to Kaiser 86/87 NYE and SF Civic 84/85 NYE. And true-to-form the shows that wind-down the year are hotter than the actual (hyped) New Years Eve show. In Tom Thumbs Blues, Phil sang some completely new-to-my-ears lyrics while Clarence came in early with some cool unique horn effects. During "Promised Land" (set 1 closer) Phil's thumpin' each string on MAXiMUM THUMP clarity. Brent n Jerry n Clarence clearly were having' a ball. To me the whole second set-list was a tribute to all of those Morning Dew shows that had Playin' , Uncle John's Band > Playin >then a Spaced > wheel or T Stones before a pristine DEW that we were fortunate to have experienced together.
