Headphones only (sound problems), but so worth it - liquid crystal lightning Jerry jaming at it's best. Deserves many listens.

Tight and right, with beautiful jamming and solid groupthink throughout. Headphones only for archive version: HELP US ON THIS ONE CHARLIE MILLER!!!

The Other One
Complicated rising and falling arc to the energy, but great jam. Long Truckin>TOO>Eyes in a great 2nd set. Sound quality problems though.

Loose Lucy
Such fun. Has a swagger and strut like the best, but a bit more fun and light. Thanks to C. Miller we can hear it now. Cheers, sir!

Brown Eyed Women
Pristine rendition, now audible with thanks to C.Miller. This is a peak era Dead, with new sounds and balance even in the straight rockers.
1
Stella Blue
Peak musicianship and total communication of the band at one of their most telepathic moments as a group. Jerry's vox is sublime.

The Race Is On
Just exactly another fun version

Row Jimmy
Fresh version, vocals glide with some smooth plying
