Good Show in Eugene last night.
I would say the best jam was during the first set Greatest Story...
They went into a long one-chord jam that they were able to ratchet up to rolling-thunder cruising altitude, espessially thanks to Russo.
Probably best 2nd set jams were during Sugar Mags.
No Blues For Allah or Terripn tunes.
No Cumberland, China, or Scarlets...
A pretty good He's Gone.
They did Sittin on Top Of The World, Viola lee, and Golden Road, from that early album.
No Bobby Key of E songs (LLR, JS, BTW), no Jerry A-minor songs (Loser, Jackaro, West LA, etc).
They did Liberty and Lazy River Road.
Esau and Masterpiece (with some new chords and a modulation).
Hard To Handle and Smokestack Lightnin'.
Around and Around which somehow they managed to fuck up.
Yeah I would say John K is playing way more John K and not much Jerry, but again, they didn't really do any songs where very specific Jerry licks are requiered.
His Mutron sounded good on Greatest Story, but he went to clean and distortion during the long jam.
Spent my t-shirt money on cool set of Wings with a Stealie in the middle, and an Ice Cream Kid button (for a buck).
They played at least two songs that were new ones I hadn't heard, one of which sounds like a slow Suger Mag intro for a while.
The space Jam was kind of "Industrial" rather than obtuse/meldoc.
No drum solo.
I got to meet the chick backup singer after the show. She's very pretty and very nice, hanging with the audience for a few right after the show right down front.
It was a fun show.
