The Deadpod

Sep 22, 2023

This week I've decided to feature the first show of the historic 9-show run at Madison Square Garden in New York City on September 14, 1990. This was without Bruce Hornsby, who didn't make his appearance with the band until the following night; nevertheless this is a fine show, with the band displaying lots of energy  and enthusiasm as they return to the Garden for this nice long run of shows. 

Each of these selections are quite well played. The opening 'Stranger' displays how well they are listening to each other. I'm quite partial to the 'New Minglewood Blues' a tune that I usually categorize as a throw-away, which is really rockin' here. 'Ranble on Rose' features some interesting Jerry midi work with a trumpet solo. I love how this soundboard recording allows us to hear the enthusiastic fan response, for example on 'Black Throated Wind'..
