El Paso
Dynamite. Kicks off nicely.
2
Loser
Solid and grooving with a nice pulse. Keith is still brand new, but fits in beautifully.
1
Playin' In The Band
Keith on a what sounds like a Hammond B3 gives a mad funky vibe. Goes into the Main Ten theme and is pretty hardcore. Special early Keith version.
3
Brokedown Palace
Powerful, sweet vocals and nice harmonies. Totally overlooked great 1st set on this show.
5
The Other One
Masterpiece. The Jam out of drums into the first verse is inventive and exploratory, very subtle interplay. Totally overlooked. Dig it.
2
Ramble On Rose
One of the early bouncy ones... NYC/ Jericho part inherits new interpretation 30yrs later
3
Cryptical Envelopment
Wonderful, love this gem slides nicely into a billy k drum solo and the reprise swiftly moves into a hot deal
1
Me and My Uncle
Part of an awesome TOO sammie.
1
Truckin'
A rollicking good time.
1
Sugaree
Very well sung and played.
1
Brown Eyed Women
Gently, Jack Jones, won't you come to me.
1
Beat it on Down The Line
Rippin' version with Keith tearing butt.
1
Jack Straw
Gotta go to Tulsa.......

Tennessee Jed
Bubbly, bratty storyboard version. Character & twang for miles. I'd pay to see this band. Two for a tenner? Four please.
