Set 2 starts with a raging scarlet. The peak is through the roof! Fire is like a trudging brontosaurus with Phil's bass bombs equaling the beast's steps. Estimated> drums is inspired as is the black Peter.
Please folks, ignore the derogatory comments from people who barely listened to the show and decide yourself. I used to use the comment section on archive as a guide to pick shows and now realize its a dead end. Unless its Venetta or Cornell 77, you're going to get some dumb comment on the band going down hill after 72 or whatever. Again, decide for yourself but there's treasure throughout their career. In the strangest of places if you look at it right.
Subject: forget how to play Sailor and Saint??
-They restart with Scarlet and all is as it should be and the wind up to the Fire transition is stellar.
-Estimated gets a little lost at the end but thankfully Jerry builds an escape to Eyes and we are at cruising altitude once again.

Subject: That's about right
I can appreciate Scarlett Begonia's and Fire on the Mountain.
Also Alabama Getaway.
Just for the sake of possibly getting the chance to use arguing again, that man's past habit's along with mine for that matter are nobody's buisness.
Mr.Bill and Capt.Doubledose that was a nice way of explaining how you meant what you said.
I've got less personal in the last few years.
Subject: fun show!
Killer Scarlet>Fire here, and the Estimated>Eyes is nice with a really sweet post eyes jam.
Subject: first show
Subject: John Belushi
A couple of comments in response to other reviews. Capitol was indeed a small place. Tickets were available only through mail order lottery (and scalpers). Reason I brought up Jerry's h-habit was not to be critical. It was really more in sadness than anything else. He was so f**king great and sadly, I can hear the decline in his music over the years.
Subject: this show sucks
Subject: As long as I was paying for tickets Jerry's heroin habit was my business
Open with Alabama the crowd is insane, great promised Phil is thumping away, check out Jerry on loser and most unforgettably on Scarlet+++, he does make alot of mistakes as does Bob with some flubbed lyrics but they are on fire in this. Height of the Arista sound. Think this was one of the first Scarlet>Fire>Estimated>Eyes... I know Salt Palace '81, Rutgers....
Subject: not bad
