This is an excellent show, from top to finish.
The highlights abound. Mississippi -> Franklin -> Stranger is simply on fire. China -> Rider going into the break is absolutely excellent, and the Saint -> Ship in the second set is also absolutely wonderful.
There are some interesting things, including a false start to Brokedown Palace (which is followed by one of my personal favorite versions), a bizarre instrumental opening to Eyes, and a really comical Jerry guitar into to Truckin'.
Jerry's singing here is not all that great, though it's not as bad as some others claim. His lack of pitch is most apparent on Bird Song, but it gets better as the show goes along.
As always, Hunter's matrix is simply without peer. It's easy to get lost in this one.

I'm Choosing An FOB Instead
I appreciate Hunter's effort on this evening's entertainment, but I'm going with the gd81-05-09.aud.munder.10031 Front Of Board recording because Jerry is not singing very well in this Nassau run. And the matrix just emphasizes it. The Munder upload isn't perfect, but it's allot softer for Jerry's singing and has decent fidelity.

Good Stuff Here
An all-around good show. Again, another great matrix by Hunter. Love the restart on Brokedown Palace - and so does the audience.

A very solid 81 show.
The matrix performed by Mr. Trix really brings this one back to life. Jerry is in fine form during the spring of 1981. Nice suite of tunes to get you grooving.
