very spacey 1970 version with a Mind Left Body Jam>Tighten Up jam>St Stephen>The Eleven (last time played)

The Eleven
Insanely polished, and powerful eleven. Following an epic dark star. Despite the atrocious recording, this Eleven is most definitely a must listen
2
Easy Wind
Great version, not so great AUD
1
Candyman
Always a nice treat
1
Uncle John's Band
Can't get enough of the acoustic versions
1
Cumberland Blues
Hot version
3
Friend of the Devil
Deep levels of intimacy on the AUDs here, and Jer's voice and playing are just spectacular. Brilliant fresh playing from a historic transitional era.
3
St. Stephen
The last DS>SS>11 ever, and doesn't disappoint. Sounds like they still had TC's celeste, even tho he'd already left. Perfect cannon shot, tight jam.

I Know You Rider
Long, slow, version to open the show. Very cool.
1
Dire Wolf
Always cool to hear an audience version prior to workman's dead coming out.

It's A Man's World
This version is... not great. I'm wondering if the drugs kicked in or something.

Monkey and the Engineer
Very listenable and would have been ranked higher if it wasn't for the WTF recording technique
