2
Hard to Handle
Great 'Bobby segment', as his solo has come to be known. Whole show overshadowed by the outrageous monster the next day, but still great fun.
8
Easy Wind
Powerful and driving blues jam, with a unique ending. Garcia tears this one up, and Lesh provides a great hollow bass sound.
5
Sugar Magnolia
Phil throws a bassline in the break before SD.
4
Morning Dew
They work up a head of steam and deliver what you seek on this one.
5
Good Lovin'
Not sure how we missed this one so far. Should be on the board.
5
St. Stephen
Out of GDTRFB into NFA.
3
Bertha
Show opener. Jerry soars with thunder from Phil.
2
Me and My Uncle
Solid early version with crisp vocals and Jerry sounding good.
2
Playin' In The Band
Solid version from the pre extended jam days.

Loser
Crisp, tight version. Jerry sounding good on vocals and guitar.
