HERE, this is a very good audience recording. Given the significances of the show, it is important to hear the crowd interactions with the band beyond description.
The show opens with the Brent Mydland cover of "Hey Pockey Way." "Feel good music in your soul, makes the body want to Rock 'n Roll" yes in deed. The keen listener will notice that they don't hear Bobby's background vocals, so when "Minglewood" starts his vocals are absent through the first lines of the song. They "Push" their way through one more song before Steve Parrish has to rescue them from the Communist (as Bobby says). The crowd exclaims for the line, "broken heart don't feel so bad," because they didn't lose Jerry there. A very lively "Music Never Stopped" ends the set. I was re-listening to this on 9/11 and the line "A cool breeze came on Tuesday, Balls of lightning roll along" jumped out at me as I was thinking about all those "Tuesday Kids" that were created 11 years ago.
