Uptown Theater, 12-5-1979
Thanks for posting. I gave it a listen, and I have to agree a great version!! I think the October through December 1979 tour is vastly under-rated. Great stuff on this tour, Cape Cod Coliseum, Philly Spectrum, etc.. I've been told that the Uptown Theater is a beautiful place. See cinematreasures.org/theaters/69 Nice photo of the theater.
Don't know about the JG vs JK stuff, I try not to think of music that way, but to each their own. The whole band is sounding great on the Shakedown, and Brent has some funky sounds during the jam.
Another poster mentioned 7-6-87. I recently gave the Pittsburgh 7-6-87 show another listen, well actually only the 2nd set, and yes, it's a nice Shakedown, but not on my short list of favorite Shakedowns. The 2nd set pre-drums segment is an interesting listen. The post drums is short, and anti-climactic. This was a show I attended, it was cool seeing the Neville Bros, although they're not too audible in the mix. One bit of trivia is this was the beginning of the "In The dark Era" as the CD was released on that same day. The next 2 nights were in Roanoke, but for me and my friends, we were off to Philly for the JFK show with Dylan.
