I'm not sure I've got all that much to say about this show. It's really nice. A couple good listens through and I've not found much that's negative. Maybe a couple minor lyric flubs but other than that, Jerry's playing is pretty nice, vocals are solid, there's a nice mix of John Kahn's bass and Melvin Seals' organ... a pretty good show, a little on the short side, but there's not much to complain about.

The sound isn't bad. It's not as much in your face as a clearer recording might be and it's a little bit crowdy during a moment here and a moment there, but not terribly so. Grading is purely subjective and perhaps I'm being a little conservative because I know that some people will think this is an outstanding Aud recording. It suits me just fine!

Usually you didn't get FOB AUDS at a JGB show for the sure fact that taping was strictly a no no versus a Dead Show, this is is someone who either was in the balcony with his Mics extended out a bit or right smack in the crowd since you do hear ongoing chatter of fans, other than that the instuments are crystal clear and Jer in 86 was hard to listen to since he was in such dreaful shape, it took a toll on his vocal soulfulness and but we still came out in droves to see him.

Yeah, huge thanks go to all those tapers at Jerry shows, and even though we have so many SBDs for the Good Ol' Grateful Dead, we don't have them all, so thanks to GD tapers, as well.

For this show in particular, here's what the Text File says:

"disassembled Nak 700s clipped to brim of hat for stealth [20' from stage, first row of tables, dead center]"

Who knows, this may be the only source for this show. I don't listen to '86 that much but Jerry doesn't sound that bad yet. I've heard worse.

Thanks for your comments, Street Pig!

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
