Althea
Perfect pace and groove. Super hot ending jam starting by blasting the main lick full band full force. Awesome Jerry licks to complete.

Loser
How this is not considered the best Loser I'll never know. Absolutely insane Jerry solo ending with an EXPLOSION into "Last fair deal..."

Bird Song
Wonderful interplay. Short and focused. Sounds like the band becomes one organism.

The Wheel
A great version out of a great Estimated Prophet.

Little Red Rooster
Another great one with Matt Kelly guesting

Candyman
A spectacular take on Candyman. Jerry is just brilliant here.

Beautiful, an exceptional first set, the ending trio of Candyman->LL Rain->Don't Ease is wonderful, Great show

Cold Rain and Snow
Set two opener has a fantastic swing to it courtesy of Mr. Lesh. Sweet Brent, and Jerry is on top of it.

Estimated Prophet
This is a fantastic nearly flawless version, sweet jams and excellently sung by Bobby. Very polished performance

Drums -> Space
With special guests Airto Moreira and Flora Purim. Fantastic trippy stuff.

The Other One
nice long outer space intro sounds like you are on MArs than Phil explodes and it's like a thousand blasts of light they just take off for a wildburst

Passenger
Karate Chop! Miller/aud for the bone crushing pummeling.

Bertha
Ripping opener of an outstanding three-night run. Jerry on fire.
