Cumberland Blues
A ferocious version that really crackles. The Matrix version of archive.org brings the Wall of Sound to your living room.
10
Eyes Of The World
A great version from a somewhat overlooked show.
4
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
A complex and delicate version with a very mellow transition
4
Scarlet Begonias
Phil brings the nasty funk
4
Not Fade Away
Seems like this one is going nowhere....band/Jerry sneeks up on you, and all of a sudden you are in the midst of a high octane groovefest!!!!
4
Greatest Story Ever Told
Well worth a listen. Sloppy and tight all at once.
3
Dire Wolf
Seems like they're just having a great old time jamming together. A loose, fun-filled 1st set capping off a great month in Dead history.
6
Playin' In The Band
Deep and weird, capping a set full of loose fun. They get into it and it's all business with a wild trans into UJB, slipknot tease, and a great outro.
5
Space
Seastones: Completely wild and rises to a freaky climax. May cause brain blisters. Not for children.
2
Truckin'
Long exploratory solos, smouldering jams, cool interplay. Won't blow you off your chair but very inventive and interesting.
3
Uncle John's Band
Sweetness and light insight a wickedly melting Playin' sandwich. Pretty, gentle harmonies found somewhere out there the deep dark chaos. Tight sound.
3
Black Throated Wind
Head phone alert - this one is flawless.
7
Pretty Peggy O
Flawless! Phil and Keith deliver heavenly accompaniment here.
2
Jack Straw
Professional delivery

Loser
Mellow....

Big River
