Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Prepare youself for blastoff during this version. This day might be the show of 76'. A must listen!
3
Franklin's Tower
Just another highlight from a most enjoyable second set. Wow the boys were all on fire this show!
6
Loser
I've never heard another version sound anything like this masterpiece. This is one special take the gang did, pure bliss...
10
Ship of Fools
A great The Other One->Ship Of Fools.
8
The Other One
Smoking version from a hot show.
8
Row Jimmy
I've posted my share of '76ers here, yet somehow not this one, a go-to version for me. Amazing vid on YT, also. Super Phil-heavy
6
Sugaree
Show opener! Starts in one tempo and ends in another. Elements at hand. Has its bright and shining moments.
5
Scarlet Begonias
Fantastic 15+ minutes of standa-lone Scarlet featuring a very Phil-front bass section post-lyrics. Final jam section gets real jazzy, too.
2
The Wheel
Of all the things I've found here, this is the one I'm proudest to have found.
5
Samson and Delilah
Somebody wasn't ready at the beginning, but things turn out alright.
2
It Must Have Been The Roses
The wonderful slow super stoney jam reminds me of that Miami '74 Jam > Ship of Fools
1
Not Fade Away
Funkiest playing of the intro material?
2
They Love Each Other
Phil digs deep this whole show. Jerry rips a nice solo on this one
1
The Music Never Stopped
Jerry tears this one apart with a shredding solo. The link here is bass-heavy SBD with some decay, but just brilliant playing by all.
