7Mountains of the Moon
Mountains of the moon>Dark Star=Unreal
3Hard to Handle
3Dupree's Diamond Blues
Jerry takes charge and the levels are excellent, and--oh yeah--it's acoustic (at least sounds it, but I haven't checked sources to confirm).
2China Cat Sunflower
Nice early stand alone with a long intro. You can hear the transition from the old intro to the more familiar pickings of later versions.
2Doin' That Rag
Rollicking and ramschackle.
5And We Bid You Goodnight
Barber shop trio with Phil prominent in the mix.
2The Other One
Crazy explosive version with hot touches of feedback
Crazy guitar effects after 4:15
The Eleven > 9 Songs > Eleven Closeout..whole show worth a visit
