Saturday Dead: Shoreline 5.10.12
Mountain View, CA
Words By J-man
This Saturday brings to us one of the cleanest and highest quality recordings of the 91' spring/summer tour! May 5th at Shoreline Amphitheatre was an incredible night of music that exemplifies 1991 as a year.
Grateful Dead Live at Shoreline Amphitheatre on May 10, 1991.
Set One: Jack Straw, They Love Each Other, Walkin' Blues, Stagger Lee, Me & My Uncle-> Maggie's Farm, Cold Rain & Snow, Desolation Row, Don't Ease Me
Set Two: In Foolish Heart-> Saint Of Circumstance, Crazy Fingers-> Truckin'-> New Speedway Boogie-> Drums-> Jam-> The Wheel-> All Along The Watchtower-> Black Peter-> Sugar Magnolia, E: It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Bruce Hornsby's key work throughout the show added such an developed layer to what the Dead was doing and although late in his career, Jerry sounded solid. Highlights of the first set include "Jack Straw," "They Love Each Other," and "Cold Rain & Snow." Second set highlights were "Don't Ease Me In," an extended "Drums>Space," "All Along The Watchtower" and "Sugar Magnolia," though honestly, you could pretty much just hit play and listen all of the way through.
Enjoy this ripping display of Dead material from one of the last strong eras for the band. 1992 brought change and disarray to the family and left only memories of better years...
