The "conventional wisdom" of this show is that it is considered their "worst ever" gig. So what makes a show the "worst ever?" Most people would say if Jerry was out of it, that's enough to be a bad show. Then the sound problems. Boreal suffered from sound problems, but everything seemed to get resolved by set break.
Was there ever a show that was considered bad because of the drummers? I've always wondered. Well if there was, Boreal 85 wasn't it. Listen to Mickey and Billy pound away for all it's worth. They are really alive here. Great drumming from the Rhythm devils.
