Jerry very smartly engages the crowd immediately with this new band by playing three straight songs that the audience would know from the Dead's acoustic sets from 1980. Well the first two were done in those set "Friend of the Devil," wasn't played acoustic from 1970 to 1982. But we all know it acoustically from "American Beauty," justlike the joyous set closer of "Ripple."The electric set is slightly more energetic than your normal JGB show. "Get Out Of My Life," "Evangeline," and "Think" provide some extra emphasis to the slower beauts like "Forever Young" and one of my personal favorites "And It Stoned Me." The show ends with a delightful "Tangled Up In Blue," which Garcia spreads the final solo on, just like old times.
