The North Carolina Carter-Finley Stadium. I mean really, does this look like a great venue for the Grateful Dead. Does 1990 seem like a great year?
Is this a happen’ band?
I mean really. Listen to this version of Bird Song if you don’t believe me. Bruce Hornsby played the opening set and joins the band on several numbers. Jack Straw opens a little rough but starting with Loser it is pretty much gold all the way. Some are not big fans of Brent but I love him and he is great tonight and works well with Bruce. Jerry is hot and healthy. This is a nice sound board recording (by Charlie Miller) with a clear guitars and bass through out. When they are on, this was the band to hear. And on this date they were on. But don’t take my word for it start listening. Click a track to play (right click to take it home with you).
