Dark Star
Surprised this version is not on the list the classic Live Dead sequence all very well played. This 20 min. DS has a short early Feeling Groovy Jam.
7
The Eleven
The classic Live Dead sequence with my new favorite “The Eleven”, just a little more controlled, in a laid back, non-frenzied pace. Give it a listen.
3
Dire Wolf
Cuts in, but otherwise sublime. This and the night before's are almost studio-quality perfect.
3
Me and My Uncle
Another blazer - strong vocal and urgent Jerry work
9
Mason's Children
This is some great early primal dead

High Time
Beautiful early version, lovely Jerry all around

St. Stephen
Fantastic Dark Star->St. Stephen->The Eleven-Lovelight sequence. Great stuff

Feelin' Groovy Jam
Not much to say other than some real kick ass heady stuff.

Black Peter
Really fine take with bluesy TC takes on keys and Jerry smoking the outro.

Good Lovin'
Blistering leads that melt to some swinging grooves.
