Shakedown Street
Epic Shakedown. Starts with lyric flubs by Brent and Bob, but rages onward to headiness.
Not Fade Away
If you like 89, you will love this NFA.
Built to Last
Nice and tight with solid Bruce touches
Jack Straw
Powerful version. The vocal entrance at the end brings the house down, you can tell they're having fun; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gjjkcVIoys
Bird Song
Very inspired playing. Jazzy swing from the rhythm devils, Lesh is barreling down the low end, and Jerry dancing the leads to a powerful conclusion
