Two Souls in Communion
I think all the Europe72 versions are stellar but this is my favorite but 5-10 is a better source
23
Playin' In The Band
Sometimes shorter is better. At around 10 mins. this beauty from E'72 packs the jazz, jam, passion. Like a more intense version of the one on ACE!
10
Me and My Uncle
A smokin' version.
11
Big Railroad Blues
So rippin' good. Get your Jerry on.
11
Deal
One knows from Jerry's opening vocals "cost a lot to win" sung with extra twang, that it's gonna be rockin' with that good county, funky vibe.
10
Black Throated Wind
Great fills from Keith in this one. Jerry tackles the descending final guitar notes beautifully as well
8
Sugaree
Laid back version! I know: It's not the headiness of 1977, but it's a fine representation of the song in its earlier stages!

Hurts Me Too
Supplements Top 5 show of all time.
10
Tennessee Jed
Best version from europe 72 at the best europe 72 show.

Jack Straw
Nice, tight version of a new American folk song.
10
Mexicali Blues
It sounds like the boys gave a little extra on these "American" songs for their European fans.
9
Beat it on Down The Line
From an all-around great show (the extra accent in the count-in must have caused some smiles)
6
Brown Eyed Women
I know this song was played every night durin E72, but this one is certainly worthy. Love Bob's work on this one.

Uncle John's Band
An epic closing to possibly one of the most interesting shows of all time.

One More Saturday Night
great encore to one of Europe's best shows
7

Sweet drums workout is part of one of the hottest longest dark stars of all time Spacey Heady stuff
