Grateful Dead Road Trips Cal Expo'93 3-CD Set --- 2-CD Set + 1-CD Bonus Disc! -- 1993 Summer Tour Grateful Dead at Expo... I mean let's see here my fellow Dead Fans, as I do kindly warn you that I run the risk of getting a little' emotional' over this one, this Very-Hot Dead Run!!! All I can say is I hope that you were able to catch a Show or Shows! I was so fortunate to not only warm up at the Shoreline run prior, but also catch all-three of these Incredible Nights!
Of Historic Live Grateful Dead!! Two thoughts here -- 1st thought : Many critical fans are less-fond of 90's (post-Brent) Dead and obviously there are some good reasons for feeling that way - especially from the' consistency' standpoint, and at times the apparent lack of energy & even the achievement of a grippy musical tone. And then the 2nd thought : During this May 1993 Cal Expo Shows there was a very-very! Special brew' stirred up for these California Rex Foundation Shows, as follows : A song-by-song Jerry Garcia Guitar-Clinic! + When Phil's On The Band's On!
+ When Things Get Weir'd! = what many Deadhead's consider the Band's last Great! I don't personally feel quite that way myself i. Autzen'93/'94 - Oakland Feb. 94 Chinese New Year of the Dog!, and I'm sure a few' big' others -- however, if you were there for this Beyond-Glorious! May'93 run at Expo - I can see exactly why you feel that way, and I completely understand. An absolutely Perfect atmosphere : California Sunshine, a Rex Benefit occasion, the Band clearly feeling the great vibes throughout, all in probably the last small (and most intimate) outdoor venue the Grateful Dead were still able to play in this'90's era due to crowd sizes, associated problems, and etc.. You've gotta love the old Cal Expo, just gotta... But here's the scoop, and who will ever know why exactly this happened except for each of the Boys, naturally - I'd assume. : Jerry Garcia was simply ready-to-go All!!! Throughout this entire Expo'93 Rex run - Big-Time!!! He comes out of gates, guns Rosebud! Blazing & Phil immediately follows suit as lead (bass) guitarist -- then Bob Weir at his best (looking like he'd been anxiously waiting for this moment).
Garcia's fret board / picking attack & tone is aggressive, vicious & pristine all throughout the power-moments in this run, and the ballads are heartfelt, sweet & played with excellence. Shakedown Street clearly proclaims that Sacto & Expo! Do most definitely have some serious Heart! I mean look out Jerry-freaks because here indeed comes the Boss Turbo-Overdrive!
A killer Playing In The Band version & set-placement(s) - with reprise included! I mean Here Comes Sunshine... Picasso Moon > Fire on the Mountain?
I mean look out below in the Phil Zone!!! Last but not least, one of the most creative, improvisational & crystal-clean transitions ever - of all-time!
Cassidy > Uncle John's Band > Cassidy!!!! Gee, Lll, Ooo, Rrrrr,, IiiiiIIII, Aaaa!!!!! I mean I truly challenge the Purist Fans of 60's, 70's & 80's Dead, to give this Mid-90's Good Ol' Grateful Dead an open-minded try!
No guarantees naturally, but I really do think you'll be very-pleasantly surprised. Some actually speak of the 5/26 Show as being the true last great' Hurrah' point for the Grateful Dead, and me - myself -- well, I personally feel the entire 5/27/93 Show was one of the Best Shows I ever saw.Right up there on the same level as some of the scorching-hot nights with Brent in the Late 80's/Early 90's. I bet that this is the latest release the Grateful Dead will ever professional re-master & release for the loyal fans, and there are some real reasons why they picked this one -- and it is All! Definitely - Most-Definitely -- Enjoy!!!
