If you look at all the shows I rank you will notice that I rarely give a show a 5. I am stingy in that department so as to delineate the really special events. This is definately one of those shows. What a trippy sound. I don't know what it is with that area of Virginia but every show I ever saw in the coastal southeastern Virginia area was eerily good. ( including the Norfolk Scope in 82' ) The whole first set. The Stanger franklins is amazing. The He's Gone transition into The Other One is so trippy and unique. You have to download this show onto cd and turn up this transition to here the complexities. Sorry guys but if you get this one from Archive you are going to miss the full experience because of the separation dropout between the two songs. The part I am talking about is maybe 10 seconds there. The whole show is a keeper. Nice.
The bus came by and I got on that's when it all began....
Hey Dougles - you offerin' it up, since the Archive version ain't the stuff?
thumpin' other 1 out of nowhere. Rockin' let it grow>deal to end the 2nd. You wish you were there...
I was on the floor for this show. There was a naked guy dancing all over the place. I remember the drums were really loud. Drove from C'ville to Hampton in a 68 AMC Ambassador with bad brakes. W/e before finals in my last year at UVA. Just superb...
Was this the Norfolk show that a lot of us got busted at? Or was it at the Scope the year after?
Jerry plays & holds the longest single note EVER in this Deal. It holds for what seems like an eternity.
