Big River
Country Rock. Played with excitement and flair.
2
Me and Bobby McGee
sweet as ever, get on it
6
Sing Me Back Home
Gorgeous the whole sequence of He's Gone->Truckin->O1->SMBH is just breathtakingly powerful only the Dead could pull this much power and emotion off.
3
Truckin'
Just when it seems like they've decided on O1 as the jam vehicle of choice, they suddenly switch to a great Truckin'.
3
The Other One
Nice jazziness coming out of Truckin'. Phil hints at a few solo themes he would develop later on, and Jerry shreds before the verse reprise.
1
Sugaree
So smooth, so warm. 2nd song in the show, and they sound like its late 2nd set. Gem of a show, gem of a song.
1
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
This CC is so sweet and much longer than others of the era before signaling the >IKYR, with lots of room to stretch out and find the sound.
1
He's Gone
A long, smooth outro allows for a little musical discussion whether it's going to TOO or Truckin'. Great stuff that must have stolen many faces.
1
Uncle John's Band
Hard rockin' version coming after a deliriously epic 2nd set suite. Crunchy and powerful.
