Black Dirt Live Again
This is a cool show..
I like the recording
Band is way laid back
Bobby almost has a drawl
First set really moves
things like Me & My Uncle standout
even CC Rider is all business in the jams
Garcia goes with mellow and reflective until Don't Ease
A jumbo SHAKEDOWN into a fierce>Samson
Terrapin>Playin' mellow with driving rhythm
(Everything pre-drums but the fired-up Samson extends out)
PITB jam gets super spacey at about 10 minutes in
Really it is like PITB> SPACEY>Drumz
and it is a heavy and trippy Drums
Like about 5 minutes in sheer pandemonium
they are hitting the big boy drums
while Keysey is playing
i dunno a harp, piccolo, recorder?
The Space that follows is actually less spacey
then the first Space after PITB
and the drummers are still beating the skins as we go.
They have a really good HEAD of steam
for the rest of the show.
(It says Nobody's Fault in the taper's list
but I am not hearing that at all)
Sounds all hard driving NFA..
O.K. 6 minutes in to the NOT FADE AWAY
there is a distinct Garcia riff Nobody's Fault-jam
but then 8 minutes in Weir bring the Not Fade CODA
pretty much out of nowhere.
and can't get anyone willing to harmonize
Jerry brings a GDTRFB outro
(AKA a slight Bid You Goodnight instrumental)
Stella Blue-Always got to be somebody yelling something
during the quiet part of this song at an East Coast show?
Nice Stella-Good Crisp Vocals
Pretty jam right into Sugar Mag..
For Context in 1981 I was going to a Catholic High School
I remember passing notes with a certain somebody
The religion teacher was talking about
the Rolling Stones
going to Hell
and she sends me this note
"I would do Mick Jagger"
only she didn't say DO
ah, I was still a few years away
from "trying to make some girl"
Great Sugar Magnolia
good closer on a very tight night
SWEET MAMA DAY DREAM
"You gotta come on over here"
Is this a 4 star or 5 star?
Freak it go with the 5 bones
LET PHIL SING?

nassau is ok
being a long island fellow myself, it was very easy to get to. for the most part, the shows were ok. never the greatest but always enjoyable. almost got kicked by a horse.

Prejudicial review, but to hear it is to love it!
This was my first show, and I virtually had to be dragged by a buddy into going (I turned down tix from him for Radio City previously; in retrospect what was I thinking?). Anyway, I promised him I'd keep an open mind, and the rest as they say is history...
This is a wonderful show, and I'm thrilled to see a great quality SBD surface. THANK YOU CHARLIE MILLER!! Superb Jack Straw, and a very solid first set. Let It Grow is textbook perfect. And then they just take off for the second set: everything from Shakedown through a top Sugar Magnolia is played to the hilt. Ken Kesey joined the band onstage during space and U.S. Blues.
Another note: not sure if this was the official second coming of Phil's vocals, but a microphone was set up for him and he sang backup during U.S. Blues. The crowd went completely nuts, shouting "Phil's SINGING" throughout. I was clueless at the time, but it's worth mentioning...
