2It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Coming out of "The Main Ten" (which became the Playin' reprise segue), this is a long, slow, emotional and beautiful Baby Blue. A wrinkle in time.
Very well played and sung! Pity about the audience member humming along out of tune, but otherwise a fine ’69 AUD.
1Dancin' in the Streets
High-velocity, high-power jamming magic, all packed into less than nine minutes. Intense. From a wonderful overlooked show.
Practically flawless early version played with focus and intensity.
1China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Exploratory transition jam! Very different from most early versions. Has that anarchic ’60s energy.
unique, spacious laid back Jerry from a great night in 69
beautifully played start to finish, interesting jam in the reprise
