Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Another great vesion from ’71 with a unique transition jam after the “We bid you Goodnight” coda, this time into JBG.

Hard to Handle
When I'm a little hard to handle I load this up and pull the trigger. I'm surprised no one submitted this one yet.

Sugaree
Phil is all over this. Short and sweet version.

Mellow, No keyboard, clean and cool

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
The DP 35 houseboat tapes version is very hot for '71. Great interplay between the band, Phil Bombs.
