Just great ambient trippin' music

Morning Dew
Intense Dew - stunned it's not already here. This delivers two sweet jams. The 2nd builds to nice fanning. Check Sbd/CM.

Samson and Delilah
Jerry let it fly all on night on 4/20 - so he smoked this one out too.
9
Johnny B. Goode
Monster Dew >Around>JBG...Jerry was in full gunslinger mode this night.

Little Red Rooster
Bob's slide work is CLEAN and on point and Jerry is in a frisky mood this night. Brent's B3 is hummin' - this version peels paint.

Brother Esau
Tight on point rendition of what could be an off kilter tune -whole show blazes.
5
It Must Have Been The Roses
Surprised this isn't on here yet. Great mid-'80s plaintive vocals by Jerry, victorious solo.
