bertha>good lovin in 89. epic nye run
Sweet jam pre drums
Heater. Great start to the show
6China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
A rip rockin' version of China>rider with a peaked transition and the best yelled headlight I've heard.
This is one of the more rockin versions.
Great drumz with Airto. Don't let the beginning scare you
3The Other One
Don't sleep on this one - super dark and intense version.
Earth shaker! Great middle jam, enthusiastic vocals from Bobby, this one is a gem.
2West L.A. Fadeaway
Great version, great show. Smokin' guitar work and a tight groove all around.
Very nice, enthusiastic rendition. Lots of good guitar work from Jer.
Throwaway song, but this version cooks.
1Jack A Roe
Nimble, spritely rendition.
2When I Paint My Masterpiece
Not a song I often acknowledge, but Bobby delivers a great vocal here. Good performance all around.
2The Music Never Stopped
Swirling, dreamlike version to end a great 1st set.
1Standing On The Moon
Passionate vocals and Jerry torches the solo something righteous.
1Drums -> Space
The first thirty seconds with Airto Moreira are blood curdling. Terrifying, trippy stuff. Handle with care.
2One More Saturday Night
Obligatory, but fun nonetheless.
3It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Beautiful version to end the show.
