Mexicali Blues
Whoops! I put this as 1990-03-28 originally like an ass. Still "Kickin-ass" tho
11
Little Red Rooster
Acceptable slide playing from Bobby. Nice extended organ solo, MIDI sax solo. Whole band playing blues choruses gives first set particular vibe.
11
Friend of the Devil
Brent's playing goes far outside of the rhythmic structures the rest of the band is using to support him, shaking them out of their complacency.
6
Looks Like Rain
nice rap from Bobby at end, which draws out Jerry and Brent.
7
Truckin'
Nice full band jam at the end.
3
Drums -> Space
Some really interesting stuff here!
7
The Wheel
Wonderful > from Space. Brent! Tempo and energy boost before the chorus.
11
All Along the Watchtower
Embarrassingly bad > from "Wheel," but full-on assault from the band that rages throughout otherwise.
9
Morning Dew
reaches a powerful peak that brings this sequence to a thrilling conclusion.
10
Just A Little Light
Just a little sweetness!

Shakedown Street
Who said Hartford ain't got no heart??

Stagger Lee
Love this one. They bring the final jam!

The Music Never Stopped
They torch it!

He's Gone
Sweet version into a hot Truckin'
8
Ramble On Rose
Fantastic late era Brent version, been really groovin on this tune lately.

When I Paint My Masterpiece
Tremendous Dylan cover, this is terrific Hot Spring 1990

Spoonful
Great version out of "Truckin."
