16Turn On Your Love Light
Thelma Theatre LA. Set 1 Lovelight! Middle Jam is so slow and groovy. 29:00 long come on
round and round and round it goes. incredible peaks and valleys wow!!
10Cold Rain and Snow
Great opener. Powerful ending!
5And We Bid You Goodnight
Smokin We bid Jam out of alligator and then soulful show closer.
Such a great song anyways, but this version is second to none!
Seriously heady Cumberland. Everyone rips it up.
This is a very long reading of BP. Of course gains intensity at end. Special version.
8Next Time You See Me
This one is slowed down big time. Seems like Jer and Pig are having a blast.
5China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
This one is a beut. They torch the China Cat! The Rider aint to shabby either.
Such a crisp and clean version.
Picture perfect version. They nailed it!
Nice Keyboard intro by TC. Weird hybrid feel between acoustic/electric. Another version that is nailed this night.
The 6 mins here is sweet...painful mid jam cut. Will get whole version with DaP10.
Pretty epic Pig night!
12Uncle John's Band
Cool early version...sweet little intro jam that I have not heard on others. TC is funky on it. Totally unique and epic.
9Me and My Uncle
Very, very tight version. Weir goes crazy, and screams. Really good rendition, in a hot show.
7Hard to Handle
5He Was A Friend of Mine
Short but sweet version.
7 minutes of sonic brain meltage
Wedged in a energetic psychdelic explosion,this Merle Haggard classic provides a contrast in mood and direction. Jerry's twanging it up!
Fluttery and jungley
