Feel Like A Stranger

Foolish Heart
Nice emotional jam in the latter section. Jerry's in a good mood
14
Tennessee Jed
I've always liked this version, especially Jerry around 7:00. Surprised to not see this one in the list.
9
Just A Little Light
Short but good version.
10
Aiko Aiko
2nd Line fun all over the stage with the Nevilles.
12
Morning Dew
JG torches the 1st solo like no other and the 2nd ain't half bad - the band just doesn't get behind him to build to the crescendos.
7
All Along the Watchtower
They get after it and Jerry goes liquid metal at times > Dew.
8
The Music Never Stopped
Super hot version with lightning bolts literally filling the sky while we danced in ten inches of water!
8
Franklin's Tower
Tight, bright version. A great yin to the Stranger yang opener
2
Don't Ease Me In
Usually a bit of a throwaway for me, but this one was lyrically enthusiastic with tight playing
7
Knockin' On Heaven's Door
I have a huge heart for 89/90 era Knockin's, most especially for Jerry's perfect, blissful ambient tone. This one slays exactly as it should
4
Drums
20 minute version with momentum and creativity galore. Held my attention the entire time.
6
Uncle John's Band
Fine, fine 1989 version with a very enjoyable and weird jam into "D/S."
1
Space
Creepy crawly version with lots of different themes and moods just like all good Spaces.
4
Sugar Magnolia
Rockin' version from the summer of '89.
3
Walking Blues
Great Keyboards
2
Playin' In The Band
Short but I liked jam section alot Brent’s Organ + Jerry = Bliss
