theothr1 okay, McG81, you asked for it (i apologize but my current presence @ work allows only for an extremely abbreviated version); the 2nd set of this show was the most musically intense hour of my life...long story short>>>the psychotropic ingestibles that i took before set two literally opened a window into the mind of the Jedi (as i'm pretty sure Trey structured the setlists back then); after "The Curtain" i called EVERY song BEFORE they started it sans "Brother"...BUT, being so close to Vermont, i was wondering aloud if Ben and Jerry were there and, if they were, would they make a stage appearance...during the "McGrupp" jam in "Golgi" i told anyone who would listen that the ONLY POSSIBLE tune they could properly cap-off this ridiculousness with was "Slave"...and they responded with the most sublime version of that song* i'd ever heard before or since

*-"Slave" is one of two songs in the cannon of which i've heard, literally, every single version
