Bertha
Extended and ripping. Tape has a few sound issues, but its listenable. Sick version.
3
Sugaree
Listen past a few sound and static issues and you have a real beaut of a cruiser here. A solid doo-wop pulse gives it a different flavor too.a

Tennessee Jed
Jerry's bites down like an acid crocodile. Hot electric wires and sharp as a tack phrasing....
2
Playin' In The Band
Goes into a "The Main Ten" jam at 3:05 typical of the first month or so with Keith. Plus Phil is going bananas back there.
3
Sing Me Back Home
Show has a metallic twangy sound, to great effect here: turns this sweet tune into a hot industrial number.

The Other One
This magnificent monster could easily be near the top for '71. The show has electrical problems in 1st set, but not here. Listen to it.
