7Playin' In The Band
If you don't know this one, check it out.
Awesome flowing buildups and peaks during the first jam especially. A bit under the radar, but definitely one of the best of 1972!!!
2The Other One
Real nice segment out of a scorching 1972 post truckin' jam this is real hot weaves right out of it gorgeous like they were meant to be together
Real nice slow burner super heady, Jerry is really on and phil is just there bombing away
1Sing Me Back Home
One of my absolute favorite Grateful Dead covers, so much power and absolutely cathartic journey is taking during this beauty.
4Black Throated Wind
A truly stand out version Bobby giving his absolute all, really a great performance.
Sweet set two version love when it was part of the set
Another really good one from 1972
Really a true gem performance this whole show is really top notch
2China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Another standout version from 1972 whole show has the extra spark
Hard swaggering version from a sweet, if not often overlooked show capping off one of the great months in Dead history.
2Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Loose in places, but full of joy.
2Uncle John's Band
Hard rock outro makes this one jaw-clenchingly good. Jamming like that in 7/4 is just awesome.
Bob is heavy in the mix, but still a great version
