No More Needs To Be Said
I near about hit the roof when they started it after Drums. It got into scary stuff during some Space parts in the middle.
First post-Brent China/Rider I think and it was a hot one. Bummed this wasn't the Dick's Pick choice from this run. Too long maybe?
This was my favorite show of the 90's!! I was in attendance and even recognized Jerry's lick's when it was played on the GDhour
The China Rider for this show is just amazing, for a number of reasons:
1. Phil's bass line march during the transition jam, this may be his best playing ever in the 90's
2. Bobby's playing leading up to Rider, he shines with confidence and truly controls the flow of the jam
3. Jerry's celestial playing during China Cat (how regal) and when he just plain explodes when he takes his solo during Rider
4. Bruce's phrasing, he has some amazing licks during Bobby's verse of Rider (seriously,check this out) and is never in the way of what Jerry and the rest of the guys are accomplishing
5. Vince doens't get in the way either, and actually plays a nice little run during the transition- he plays what he needs to play for color and lays out when the big guns fire up
6. Billy is just plain dancing, when you listen to this on headphones and follow Billy around it is quite a rush
7. Mickey fuels the fire, he totally plays a supporting role on China Cat and adds wonderful color to Rider
The rest of the show is white hot as well, but the China Rider is just plain nuts. The Truckin' to open the second set is inspired, and the BE Women has a nice long jam. And oh yeah, they play that little romp post drumz. If anyone has a copy of this I can do a B&P for please let me know, I seem to have deep sixed my copy of this show...
Lay your ears on this show- it is one of the great ones!!!!!

Without question the greatest show I had the pleasure to attend. Very special.
Even though it was a long week, this show was a great way to end their run at msg.
It was a great show....if you go to YOUTUBE and search for "I know you rider" (MSG 9/20/90......you can get an idea of how powerfull the jamming and crowd interaction was.
I went to this show with my miserable wife (now ex) and she just never really "understood" I'm pretty sure this was my last show. I was fed up with the commercialism, stadiums, loud talking during drums and space.....and losing Brent...was very difficult. Fuck MSG----give me three nights at the Capital Theater anyday.
Dark Star > Blizzard of Feedback....as the Garden morphs into the mothership and wings off to points unknown.
I was beginning to burn out a little at that point.
Crazy good show, why Dick L. released 9.16 instead of this insane rock concert, is beyond me. But its easy to be a monday morning vault expert.
