*Jeff on Cumberland - I mean, :::whoa, nellie:::
*Unbroken Chain. The big post-jam "descending" section is so lovely, so perfectly executed in line with how Phil must have originally envisioned it played live...I mean, I could listen to that section (before Phil's final verse) over and over again.
Never been one to use a setlist as a benchmark for a show's rating, but this one is eyebrow-raising, for sure - and the playing matches it.
Subject: The music lives on
I've been following Furthur on archive, and I've enjoyed much, but until now I haven't heard an entire show of this depth. Personally I favor Phil and Friends from 2000-03 with the quintet. I've enjoyed Rob Barraco and John Molo far more than the current players. But with this show both Jeff and Joe are in the groove, and John is so much more of what I wanted Garcia to be when he wasn't healthy.My only complaint is that Bob Weir is the weak link on this one to my ears. So I've finally found in Terrapin and the Other One a show fro this band that says the peak is not over!!!
On the other hand, I would like to promote the quintet aka PLQ. Here's some recommended selections:
4-29-01 Broken Arrow>
6-30-01 She Said She Said>
Mountains of the Moon
7-1-01 Doin That Rag>
5-23-02 Till the Mornin' Comes>
Night of a 1000 Stars
5-28-02 Leave Me Out of This
Fire on the Mountain
6-1-02 Dark Star>
8-31-02 entire show
11-15-03 1st set - my 40th b-day
I know many people have a hard time adjusting to Jimmy H or Warren, bur after I got over my expectation of hearing these songs the way I heard them in the past, I found a whole new universe.

Music wise it was top-notch. I've never seen such solid, on-point jams from songs into nothing back into songs. John K is pushing every single person in this band to their limits, and it adds a lot to an already incredible experience. Highlights were Other One, Terrapin Suite, Unbroken Chain, Mountain Song and without a doubt STELLA BLUE. First set highlight was H>S>F, though I had been dying to see them open a show with it.
I don't know if there is some incredible chemistry at this show, or they are just getting better. Sunday didn't seem half as solid, and the March shows (3/6/10 especially was mind blowing) look like kids play compared to this crazy great night.
Catch 'em while they are still smokin'!
Subject: Lestafari's take
P.S. I was NOT there, but I sure wish I had been! This 3 night run, to my ears, is the closest it'll ever get to what the Grateful Dead experience was. I've listened to lots of the Furthur stuff, and I gotta say, they get better and better! Cannot wait for Chicago!!!!!!!!!!
Subject: Best night of the run
Help>Slip>Frank Alabama Sitting On top, a lovely Viola Lee wrap around (boy Phil loves doing that), and the highlight of the evening: Stella Blue> Other 1 closer, out of its usual dead setlist order (Other One>Stella Blue) made for some very interesting and inspired playing.
Thanks boys. Keep it coming, Bobby: play Brother Esau!!!
Subject: Oh what fun!
Subject: 5 for Mountain Song alone!
was thrilled to read about 2 all new songs by this band, based on ideas David Crosby and Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia (as far as i understood) were involved with...heard them...listened to them...let them infiltrate my ears...floated away, High On A Mountain first, meandering, wonderfully cryptical, over the hills and far away...
than Mountain Song, so simple the melody, so swampy the rhythm, so perfect the feel when you hear these vocals with bobby voice-hovering over the multilayered choir.
amazing, enlightening, deadsolidperfect!
then moved back to the start of the show, where after the Help-triptych mr.kadlecik took over for AL getaway.
got in the mood immediately, kind of sit-dancing on my bureau chair, foot stomping and head waving, looking forward for what to attempt regarding the really breathtaking setlist, smiling all the time at this real foggy cloudy early fall season caricature of a day in south western Germany...
H A !
i got it better, hot red rocks on my ears! and the thrilling Mountain Song yet to come (again!). 's wonderful, innit?
viola lee sandwich produced many high fives lots of jumping around.. demented HSF from outer space wondering how do they follow a first set like this?? with a second set like that! Thats how. Wow. glad they finished up the dark star from vegas, i definitely thought i was losing my mind waiting for that second verse... will definitly travel more to see this band. they have come so far.
