El Paso
One of the cooler versions I've heard, the tempo is way different than any other version I've heard. Worth a listen!

Mister Charlie
Jerry's guitar is smoking here. The beat is really funky also. Always a crowd pleaser!
48
Bertha
A ripper for sure...8-4 and 8-5 are here, but the best (this one) isn't? What are we doing here?

Playin' In The Band
Another nice short version.
20
Loser
A ripping '71 version.
9
Me and Bobby McGee
The band plays/signs together so well on this sweet one. The whole concert is brilliant.
11
Truckin'
Absolutely smokin' hard rocking swagger. Builds from a cool shuffle to a blisteringly hot rocker setting up Drums/TOO. Great show all around.
27
The Other One
Heavy and Heady. Starts with super-charged explosions then melts into ballsy MAMU in under 8 minutes. Love the '71s.
14
Cumberland Blues
Along with every other bit of this concert, raging good time energy and virtuouso groupmind, aided of course by one of the most ultimate AUDs ever.
