Dick's Picks 13 review

Dick’s Picks Volume 13 is a complete concert from their May 6, 1981, performance at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY.  The release also contains a hidden track, a thirty-five minute version of "Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire on the Mountain," from November 1, 1979, from the same venue. Yes it is truly hidden; it’s located just after the "Saint of Circumstance."

Disc one of Dick’s Picks Volume 13 contains the complete first set. It starts out in with a pair of fast rock ‘n’ roll songs to get the crowd going.  They follow with a Jerry ballad, "They Love Each Other," where Jerry grabs hold of the melody, as only he knows how.  Next up, we are treated to "Cassidy," and though the instrumental is short, it is tight.  They continue with several typical first set songs that are played well, especially noteworthy is the version of "Jack A Roe."  

To close the set with some jamming and prepare the audience for the second set they select "Let it Grow." They execute it quite well with all the band members participating in the action.  Then rather than closing in typical fashion with a short song like "Don't Ease Me In," they perform the much longer "Deal."  This version doesn't disappoint either; it would make the late John Kahn proud.  

The second set of Dick’s Picks Volume 13 starts out with a pair of songs that first debuted in the 1960's; the version of "High Time" is well played.  They follow with "Lost Sailor” > “Saint of Circumstance" from their Go to Heaven CD.   Beginning with "He's Gone" the set gets more interesting.  Towards the end of the song during the "nothings gonna bring him back" bridge Jerry starts singing in a bluesy style, and sounds as if he's really having fun.  This leads to a fantastic instrumental jam entitled the "Caution/Spanish Jam." This piece is surely a treat with lots of interesting twists, turns, and teases. Anyone hear the "The Music Never Stopped" inference at the 7:45 mark? The remainder of the show is solid.   

If you are looking for a release featuring Brent you won't be disappointed with this selection. by Barry Small ©
