1Big Boy Pete
Phil's "YeeUUuEuuaaah"s are a guaranteed gigglesnort
2Dancin' in the Streets
A case could be made for this being the finest version ever.
Americana at its finest. Slow, mellow, rewarding, clean, polished, and homey. One of my favorites.
4The Other One
High heat, though the levels are set really low and it sounds muffled. Sounds like Pig was playing a Hammond B3 that gives it the extra horsepower.
Relentlessly pulsing at a full shitkickin' clip. A few tape speed issues, but whatta time. Excellent.
Don't overlook it b/c of a few tape quality issues. This is fundamental '70 Dead and Pig was in fine form.
Fantastic acid soaked cryptical at the Family Dog.
Another fantastic early psychedelia infused Morning Dew.
