The Wheel
Jerry starts the entry licks and slowly builds it for 3 mins until he bounces into it. Longest entry I've heard - love it.
9
Terrapin Station
I am still trying to understand why this is missed by folks. Absolute beauty, magic and an example of everything coming together.
5
Wang Dang Doodle
The boys really "throw a mess" on this one, making the carrier dome sound like a down and dirty old time saloon. Slinky sick stuff
2
Revolution
Rarity third time played
9
Shakedown Street
Phildown St. opener in the ginormo dome at Syrabuse. Phil makes this one groovy.

Bird Song
So why this song? The journey? Well it's right here in spades. Aces!
3
Candyman
Fantastic, has a great swing, love Jerry's solo almost sounds like its bubbling out from underwater at times, Phil lays some nice bombs to play onto
2
New Minglewood Blues
Nice and slinky bluesy jam. HOT!
6
Throwing Stones
Spittin' politics at the college kids then they scare them with the jam - nice and darkish.

Hell in a Bucket
Cool stuff right here. Early bucket with tons of Bobby energy.
1
Keep Your Day Job
underrated tune and show
4
Space
Downright damaging on liquid from about the 5:50 mark...don't go there unless you can handle it.
2
Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Great licks, tight solid version in a great second set .
