After the previous night I expected some teeth in the song selection. Jack Straw / Bertha was a great start. Ramble On Rose and Masterpiece put us in a laid back groove. Had seats on side of the stage - perfect view and sound was nice. Bobby introduced Branford. The Bird song ebbed and flowed. It was a real treat. Branford left during Promised Land. In between sets we discussed the possiblity of him returning. If he didn't the Bird Song was nice. Anyway, in between sets a young man sits next to us and lights one, the lights go off and the moseleum becomes the launching pad for one of the sweetest, satisfying Dead rides I ever took. The Eyes took me to far reaches of intergalactic Deadom. It meandered and Mr Marsalis played with beautiful precision as if he helped write the music for the song. When it ended I was hoping for a Let It Grow. Initially, I was dissapointed with Estimated. The playing of the song though showed the playfullness of the band with a new sound. WOW. Then the DarkStar. I circled the universe and soared to ecstasy. This show was one sweet ride that I have enjoyed over and over. The complete recording deserves to be mixed and released so the best possible sound is available so I can play it at the loudest my stereo will allow.
peppy, zesty; dripping humidity in the Yokohama small hours. bubbling with energy as Brent shrugs it off and Billy and Mickey pulse and vibrate.
