Friend of the Devil
Poignant yet not somber, slow but not dragging; Mellow serene and emotive; Very strong full band interplay.

New Minglewood Blues
A roaring Minglewood; Check Weir's good slide solo, Garcia's ripping solo; Some fat Phil and some Gospel Brent.
7
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
A quick and driven entrance into the Help featuring Brent and Phil filling elusively and Jerry nailing it; Very intricate Knot; Infectious Franklins.
8
Playin' In The Band
A cannon into outer space; Enters uncharted territory; Reminiscent of 73' DS jams; Locked and zoned in jamming.

Wharf Rat
A Wharf Rat that convinces to the point of perfection. One of the best....period.

Brokedown Palace
A really *really* great Brokedown encore. A highlight of the entire tour for sure.

West L.A. Fadeaway
Jerry takes this one slow....

Deal
Distorto Jerry is throwing sparks at you! Play then hit repeat - Bob throws a mental scream in at the end -thank me later.
