There were quite a few outstanding shows that took place in
early Spring throughout the history of the GD, so picking one for
this week's show wasn't that easy. I think this is however a good
show from an outstanding tour, Spring of 1987. The band roars out
of the gate on Jack Straw, then goes into an outstanding Franklin's
Tower, in honor of Philadelphia I presume.. The first set is full
of sparkling playing and high energy. I'm personally fond of the
Candyman, however, in the more soulful vein..
I'm even willing to give them a pass on the perfunctory 'Don't Ease' which closes the set... the second set next week is very good as well.. The sound quality is not pristine but quite listenable, I think. I hope you enjoy it, and that your Spring is busting out all over too.
