4The Other One
Great version from a great show.
A version all true heads should love, or at least hear once.
The first one, (maybe not, unheard tapes are being released Dave’s Picks Vol 6), this Darkness Jam is in the middle of an amazing Lovelight.
5Turn On Your Love Light
Wickedly sick lovelight. St. Stephen and China Cat Teasers. This is a blow up the house barn burner finisher to an epic show.
3I Know You Rider
Another piece of awesome slightly obscured by being a 1970 audience recording.
4Me and My Uncle
Acoustic guitar gunslingers.
5New Speedway Boogie
Acoustic version with a bone in its teeth.
1Cold Rain and Snow
rough recording of a very hot pigpen performance
3Uncle John's Band
An acoustic lovely. I think DG is there on backup. It's rough-hewn, like just a couple offriends jamming on the verge of the bad crazy 1970s.
Yeehaw, but that's a sweet rare tune. Put Sawmill next to Slewfoot for gems from the era. Awesome stuff.
3Friend of the Devil
another wonderful acoustic fotd from 1970
3Deep Elem Blues
Incredible lead-in; very bluesy version.
2Don't Ease Me In
Good acoustic version with great harmonies. Great sound on the remastered audience recording.
1Beat it on Down The Line
