Great show.  Tons of fun.  Can't help but to smile when you hear a La Bamba.  Sorry Jer, Jeff's spanish is better than yours.  How many La Bamba's has DSO performed?  Anyone know.  Didn't the Dead only do it like 3 times?

 

Feel>Franklin's is a wonderful way to start a show.  I also thought that 10-8-89 was the first Franklin's in 6 years or whatever.  That must have been the first Help>Slip>Frank suite.  Or I just don't know what I'm talking about on that, which is very possible.  Anyway, I love Franklin's early in a show.  Gets the crowd and the band moving and having a good time!

Oh I had to also mention that the Vic is officially the worst venue I've been too.  Beautiful theater.  Primitive policies.  Generally unfriendly staff.

DSO had performed La Bamba 4 times before Chicago and not since 2010.

 

The Help>Slip>Franklins at Hampton was the first since 1985 although there were a good stock of 1/2 Step > Franklins, Stranger > Franklins during that hiatus.  First Set Franklins (quick:  say that 10X) are indeed great - even without the Help-Slip paring!  11/2/79 (21 minutes!), 3/13/82, 3/31/87 are a few of my first set favorites
