El Paso
Some of Billy K's most amazing work behind this galloper.

Black Peter
Powerful version. Show doesn't get the lvoe of the night before, but is every bit as deserving.

Playin' In The Band
Each Playin' since Keith joined seems to take one more step towards going supernova in '72. Here Jerry seems to get it in a whole new way. Excellence.

Me and Bobby McGee
Jerry kills this with Merle Haggard country twang

Big Railroad Blues
Jerry's having a blast with the vocals on this one just late '71 greatness all the way around.

Ramble On Rose
Similar to next night. Cool 71 groove.
