3Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
I wish there was a soundboard of this.
1976 is loaded with heady Wharf Rats this one is predrums and leads us nicely into the rhythm devils. Sick transition from Playin.
13Playin' In The Band
Rather long split up Playin. First section is intense leding to Wharf Rat the reprise ot of GDTRFB is AMAZING. Must be heard stuff.
Absolutely Gorgeous, fantastic after an early and energetic set 1 deal, This is fantastic with just the right touches from Donna. LOVELY
4Looks Like Rain
Awesome version Jerry just bending notes the whole time and Bobby and Donna in beautiful unison. The crowd clapping along warmly and energetically
Fantastic version with Jerry absolutely in control. Very touching and powerful rendition.
3Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Very rocking fast paced exhillarating version to end an underrated set 1. If this were a SNBD would be a legendary show.
Continues the run of perfect Mamas from the Summer tour. This one is short and sweet, perfect vocals.
The '76 ones ted to plod along a bit too much for my taste, but Jerry tears this one right up with a good shitkickin' solo and great tone.
1They Love Each Other
Highlight from the first set. Keith sets it on fire. Jerry is in top form.
What a treat. Why is this show undervalued? C'mon folks, don't let a good AUD scare you. This is a beaut, with the crowd part of the party.
2Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Notable for a 6-min opening jam that comes out of Wharf Rat, very cool, mislabeled "Drums". The GDTRFB smokes too.
1Brown Eyed Women
Great version of this song, percision and energy.
1Samson and Delilah
Billy and Micky lay down a tight rythm for every one to lock into, and they do. Crowd noize on all sources that i've heard.
1New Minglewood Blues
Bobby was singing with clarity and authority on this one. This is a good tight version.
