I’m a day late for a TDIH celebration of this one, but I just finished a big term paper and am treating myself to a little Monday night trip around the event horizon. I was thinking about what I could possibly write about it, when I remembered that I already did five years ago. Whoa. lightintoashes plucked this from a defunct GD forum and was nice enough to save it at his blog. I still stand by every word of it.
I don’t know that much more is needed. I think this show is one of the very upper echelon shows, very likely in the Top 10 of all time. It didn’t dawn on me until just now how the second set must be one of the most Jerry-heavy sets ever: Bob just gets two country tunes and Sugar Mags, while Jerry has the Dark Star>Eyes>Stella, a titanic HCSunshine, and a Ramble On Rose for good measure. I also noticed for the first time that there’s this one dude in the crowd screaming, “I need water! Jerry, give me some water!” over and over after Stella Blue. Where’s a Venusian Red Cross recruiter when you need one?
