Here we are on what would have been Jerry Garcia's 72nd birthday.. whew .. hard to imagine how much music he would have produced had he stuck around these last 19 years.
We get to share what we have, and this week that is the second set from the Grateful Dead's performance at the Greek Theater in Berkeley California on July 15th, 1988.
We start out with a great choice for a summer night, Scarlet->Fire... the transition is perhaps not as long as some, but there's plenty of energy here.. that energy builds with a rockin' Man Smart, Woman Smarter.. Ship of Fools follows and slows the tempo down but the band goes into Estimated->Drums->Space->Miracle which are all quite well played. The Wheel follows and then Brent leads the band into an excellent Gimme Some Lovin'. Jerry closes the set with a charged Morning Dew.. The lowpoint of the set is the encore, where Bobby is quite off key but well, no one is perfect right?
