I always felt that this was the bands "Tribute to John Lennon"
(it was a sad week leading up to this show)

The San Bernardino Swing Auditorium was about 1-1/2 hours east of Los Angeles.
It was a somber drive as John Lennon had been murdered only 4 days earlier and everyone was still in shock.

The San Bernardino Swing Auditorium was a real sweatbox and some of my favorite concerts were seen here.
A narrow rectangle, with the stage in the middle of one of the longer sides.
We were sitting dead center and about 5 rows into the risers (distance might have been around 75-100 feet from the stage?)
Tonight we were using 2 ten foot microphone stands.
For the first time I wouldn’t have to hold my hand above my head for the 3+ hour show.
Our equipment included the new Sony D-5M portable cassette recorder along with two new Sennheiser MKH-406-TUD microphones.
We were ready!

The band took off roaring.
Jerry’s voice was in great shape, his guitar leading the way for Bobby and Brent.
Phil’s bass was weaving in and out, while the two drummers in the back were holding it all together.
The first set was almost a continuous medley, peaking in a truly spectacular “Tennessee Jed”, and ending up in a rocking out version of Chuck Berry’s “the Promised Land”.
We could almost see the energy pouring out at us, and we all wondered what the second set would bring.

After the required hour break the Band came back out and opened up with the beautiful pairing of “China Cat Sunflower” and “I Know You Rider”,
which then slipped right into “Estimated Prophet”, “He’s Gone”, and then “Eyes Of The World”.
The audience was in awe and one couldn't help but associate some of these lyrics with John Lennon.
It has been reported that Jerry had tears running down his cheeks during "He's Gone" (I think I did too)

At this point the Rhythm Devils took over, the rest of the band exiting the stage for the next 15 minutes, then slowly returning to perform the magic “Space Jam”.
“Trucking” was the center piece moving into “Warf Rat” and another Chuck Berry original “Around And Around” then finishing off with "Good Loving".
The encore was the newly reborn “Don’t Ease Me In”.
