Easter Sunday one of my top 10 shows I ever was fortunate enough to attend. Ga floor at the Spectrum ..about 15 feet back Jerry side. Mic set up for Phil wohoooo he had just returned to singing. Spectgrum mid 80's insanity. They open with ..yes a Beatles cover ! I didn't even know they played this at the time this was pre internet kids. First set awesome including the ultra rare Dancin in the Streets and a smokin Deal (whole set killed).... set 2 WOW an all time top ten Shakedown>rippin Sampson >She Belongs to me ( first time I heard the gd do this - I knew I heard it before but couldn't place it at the time), danced festival Smarter>Insanity>Gimme some lovin ( another first for me was really feelin the "so glad you made it"--it was all fresh)...words don't do justice to the rest of the set sizzling... great Truckin.. LOVED the Smokestack> BIG FAT DEW> rocket fueled balls to the wall Philly mid 80's Sugar Magnolia. One of the last day jobs (we were all destroyed at this point) ... walked out covered in sweat like I just got outta the shower.... my god that was fun.. and in great dead fashion I thought they had nothing left for the last night of the tour 4/8..... boy was I wrong!!!!!
