To Lay Me Down
Crushingly soulful take here. It's all in the vocals...Jerry and Brent.
4
The Music Never Stopped
Bob sings lightning line and it strikes - ho-hum just another show they hit the pocket here. Source: CM with corrected date.
7
Hell in a Bucket
Nice weaving Phil JG torches the jam and we get a nice lift off.
6
Cold Rain and Snow
Lively interplay with Brent touches this one delivers.
6
Wharf Rat
Adding this based purely on the listening party sample for the forthcoming box set.
8
Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again
The golden year for Memphis Blues. Bruce is given the main solo spot.
3
He's Gone
Intersesting as the second set opener.
3
The Other One
Top notch 10 minute 89 version
3
Terrapin Station
Spot on version. Clean and bright.
4
Let It Grow
Monster LIG
5
Looks Like Rain
very well performed. Re-master on the RFK boxset is sublime. Someone is triggering dramatic thunderstorm sound effects around the 7:00 mark.

Little Red Rooster
Real nasty LRR
