Grateful Dead: 1991-05-04: Eine kleine Nachtmusik   Leave a comment

It starts out as a not great recording of a not great night of the post Brent Grateful Dead.  Then, as it some times does, during the second set the magic hits Jerry during Crazy Fingers.  The vocals have a timeless blues feel and the solo is out of this world (with parts of ‘Spanish Jam’ showing up). You can hear the band pick up Jerry’s vibe.  Vince’s keyboards start to rock and we are off and running seamlessly into great versions of Playin’ in the Band and Uncle John’s Band.  After the Drums and Space thingy a rocking I Need a Miracle and and Jerry is outstanding on Standing On the Moon.  Not two hours of bliss but these five songs show how the post 1990 could cook even without Bruce.  When Jerry is there, he is there.
