David Hidalgo returned the favor by coming out and sitting in with the Dead on "Rooster" and "West LA." This is the only time anyone from Los Lobos sat in with the Dead. Yet the following summer Bob and Jerry recorded some songs with Los Lobos in the backstage parking lot of Foxboro. Download the soundboard HERE and HERE.
TIN CAN TRUST."
The first set is closed out with the final version of "Gentleman Start Your Engines," "Masterpiece," and a cosmic "Bird Song." The second set opens with a crushing version of "Bucket." Then there is a unique combo of "Woman/Terrapin/Take you Home." The band masterfully works through the key changes and does not seem to come off awkward. The cool "Take you Home" specifically features some great interplaying from Jerry and Brent. Then post-Space there is an intense combo of "Other One" into "Miracle." The segue is seamless and sets up a big walk off "Dew." This "Dew" differs from the blogged about Alpine 88 one, whereas there is a significant build to this end solo. It's like the pent up gratitude for Hidalgo comes spraying out in this beautiful guitar solo. The band then encores with the only "Midnight Hour" of 1988, something special indeed.
