9Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
On this day in history, perfection was acheived during the playing and recording of GDTRFB.
5Ramble On Rose
Another '72 version played with purpose and conviction. Dynamite playing by everyone.
14The Other One
30 minutes of Other One - wandering and spacey to begin with, and Phil going bugshit after the first verse
5Greatest Story Ever Told
Jerry and Keith are equally just ripping, oh my. must listen! High voltage kinda version
Truckin -> Drums -> The Other One -> Stella Blue. Rippin' truckin' here, they're just trucking along, high voltage summer '72 style, classic stuff.
7Playin' In The Band
Underrated show most of all. but this Playin' is insanely good, just before Veneta and pretty similar, I almost like it better :o
3Brown Eyed Women
Extremely tight version. Jerry's voice is really good. This song makes me happy
Very nicely jammed out more so than most of the late 72 versions. Closes out a hot show as part of NFA->GDTRFB medley
2Not Fade Away
Extremelly high energy, band is kicking on all cylinders. Some real stellar playing from Jerry. Loaded with power and energy
5Black Throated Wind
Hot version Bobby is on fire.
High energy start to a great show. In fact a great run at the Berkley. Good vocals
Tight ensemble playing with perfect sound. This is one of the great shows of the year.
3Friend of the Devil
Perfection. They could do no wrong this week, and this FOTD is no exception. Perfection.
How in this magic week did this powerhouse version with perfect vocals not yet get voted up? Give a spin, you aren't going to regret it.
