Great summer '72 version. Right up there with Veneta.
Summer '72, a good time for consistently good renditions of jack straw
It's not the gnarly 15+ minute versions it would be in later years, but there's something special about these early versions. Sweet/joyful sugareeee
Yeeeeaaaaah, summer in Berkeley in 1972, fitting
1Uncle John's Band
Brilliant outro and high-energy version, a bit more up-tempo than others from the time. All-round sweet show, overshadowed by other giants of Aug. '72
very heady whole show is sweet very deep music in august 1972
Out of cold Dark Star space. Prankster jukes regardless this one serves itself well.
Phil up the neck and Keith throwing ragtime with Jer and Bob belting out the chorus...this train gets barrelin'.
Wow! Stand alone Stella, Bobby is really on for this one, defintely worth checking out!
Dark Star->El Paso->Space->Deal
Turns into a real shitkicker at full gallop.
1Beat it on Down The Line
Has one of Jer's longest continuous strings of up-tempo 16th note solo lines (in the changes) I can recall. Wicked fast and right as rain.
2Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Jam out of final chorus plays like waves crashing on the beach....
1Brown Eyed Women
Smooth with wicked edges in all the right places!
