Sawmill
A nice accoustic song frpm The Warehouse
3
Black Peter
the day after the new orleans drug bust and phils amp blows so bobby and jerry play acoustics really really cool
3
Mason's Children
For anyone with a soft spot for psychedelic bubblegum, the jam the shit out of this one. Ruff cut in the middle though.
3
Dire Wolf
Introduced as a "paranoid fantasy song", but oh so sweet for all that. Perfect rendition.
2
Hard to Handle
More like the great '71s than the others from 1970. A hard enough rocker that it apparently nuked Phil's amp, leading to a wonderful acoustic set.
2
Long Black Limousine
Showcases their versatility: Switched mid-way through an electric set into this moody beauty after Phil's amp blew out. Gorgeous.
4
Little Sadie
Upvote for all Little Sadies, of course, but this one is special. Subtle, understated, and delicate: Jerry is barely whispering the lyrics. Beautiful.
3
Katie Mae
As deep and simple a beautiful blues as they ever did. Pig's got the spirit of the Delta here alright. What a treat.
3
Big Boss Man
Pig's Blues in the Big Easy.
4
Cold Rain and Snow
Show opener after the bust.
3
Mama Tried
Everybody's in the pocket after having a little meet with Buford T Justice.
2
The Race Is On
Nice acoustic version from a unique show
2
Cumberland Blues
On acoustics and the singing is great fun. Bobby flubs a lyric but it's just such a unique night who cares. Listen to this show!
