This was the second show I saw of this tour; during the first leg, I´d seen one of the Beacon Theater shows. That show was good; this one was incredible.
Maybe it was something about being back in ´his little town´ of Newark...maybe it was being close to home, but without the pressures of an in-the-boroughs New York crowd...but everything was on this night. The band was tight, Paul was in great voice. Even though I´d seen essentially the same setlist and playing styles just a few months before, this show was way better -- and that´s not a slight to the Beacon performance by any means.
The most magical bit had to be Jimmy Cliff appearing, though. The two of them harmonising on Mother and Child Reunion is a moment I can never forget.
