10
It's A Man's World
It moves, from start to finish, without letting up and the jamming is inspired. At one point Pigpen shouts, "suck your cock, man says that too".
5
New Minglewood Blues
Direct and straight to the point. Was surprised that Bob was able to sing another note that night.
11
Midnight Hour
Relaxed mellow version with some interesting jams sprinkled in
6
St. Stephen
Guns a-blazin'.
4
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
The benediction at the end of this night's religious experience.
3
Mama Tried
Bob joined the end of the NRPS set, so this gets the full Jerry pedal steel treatment
4
Wake Up Little Susie
With David Nelson and John Dawson
3
Good Lovin'
perfect Pig vocal, big Phil bass, blistering Garcia guitar.
3
Swing Low Sweet Chariot
Another gret early take on this traditional by the boys.
4
Deep Elem Blues
Pure goodness. Warm AUD, intimate sound. This is the gold.
3
Candyman
Intimate expression of this song's first, acoustic, right off the LP era. A bit slower, but great vocals and 3-part harmonies.
4
Friend of the Devil
Hard to figure that this isn't here already: sweet acoustic intimacy and a clear '70 AUD that does it for me.
6
Attics of My Life
For a song notoriously difficult to sing, this one comes of beautifully. June 6th is better, but good to hear them in sequence as the worked on it.
5
Not Fade Away
Spectacular thrashing jam. Jerry has an agressive metal sound that I like to call the "Dangerous Dead" from the era.
1
Cumberland Blues
Sweet acoustic version
1
Me and My Uncle
Solid slower version
1
Monkey and the Engineer
Happy sing-along start to Thursday night mellowness at the Winterland.
