Rosemont Horizon

Great late era performance. Jerry nails the solo.
Bird Song
May 27, 1989
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Stadium

Very nice 1989 version with Clarence Clemons.
Cumberland Blues
May 27, 1993
Cal Expo

Bouncy, flowing latter day Cumberland Blues. Jerry on the attack. Epic show.
Oct. 25, 1985
The Fox theater

They blast right out of the gate with this blazing hot "Deal." Jerry is in fiery form and brings thing to where you want them to be.
The Wheel
July 2, 1989
Sullivan Stadium

Surprised this isn't here. Tight, clean version with beautiful tones and harmonies. Serene version before that blazing Fantasy.


Cumberland Blues
May 27, 1993
Cal Expo

Don't sleep on this show. Everyone raves about the night before because of the major league "Playing in the Band" jam, but this show is every bit as good with a topsy turvy second set and a strong first set as well.
Wharf Rat
March 28, 1990
Nassau Coliseum

Very strong "Wharf Rat" with a nice long intro and outro.
Oct. 10, 1982
Frost Amphitheatre

That Jerry...how did he do it? The melodies and phrases he just seemed to pull out of the air. Ethereal "Sugaree," surging with drama and melancholy, from one of the best shows they ever played.
All New Minglewood Blues
Oct. 10, 1982
Frost Amphitheatre

Jerry is unstoppable.
Sept. 20, 1991
Boston Garden

The long outro jam in this version is fantastic. Very rare for them to go the distance on "Truckin'" like they do here.
