Final Night Blue Sky

Peach Head

I have listened to the final show 30+ times already and each time I am in awe of what a night they put on. Essentially perfect minus Greg's minor lyric miscue on YDLM.

Of the entire night, I keep coming back to the Blue Sky. It gives me goose bumbs to hear Derek's soft Indian music inspired opening solo that just builds so beautifully and is handed over to Warren for a perfectly complementary and different sound.

Wow. Truly the best I have ever heard.

I hope we get a HD audio version of this night at some point.

This was a show for the ages!! Dickey was well represented that night! Not 30 X but quite a few and I am not tired of it yet!

I am completely with you on the 10/28 Blue Sky. In the middle of Derek's solo, he plays a bit of Gloria in excelsis Deo, or at least it sounds like it to me. I mess around with that quote on guitar every once in awhile. That song definitely stands out for me from the rest.
