4The Other One
O1>Bobby McGee>O1 - another mind melting fall 71 Other One sammich
11 minutes of triumphant sorrow.
4Run Run Rudolph
Balls to the wall rock and roll. Tight version.
Some of Billy K's most amazing work behind this galloper.
Powerful version. Show doesn't get the lvoe of the night before, but is every bit as deserving.
2Playin' 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.
3Me and Bobby McGee
Jerry kills this with Merle Haggard country twang
1Big Railroad Blues
Jerry's having a blast with the vocals on this one just late '71 greatness all the way around.
Glorious Jerry vocals, not one, but TWO "sweet Susie's", excellent gritty solo. Best early version ever!
2Ramble On Rose
Similar to next night. Cool 71 groove.
Nightmare vocals but there's fire in the instrumental
