Dark Star
Amazing Tighten Up sequence before Sugar Magnolia
10
St. Stephen
This one builds up quite a head of steam...
5
One More Saturday Night
Paced, it lulls you into thinking it's not gonna explode. When it does, sounds like it can't wait 4 the future. Concise, Jer teases rite > St Stephen.
20
Not Fade Away
Legendary must hear version!
16
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Beautiful and inspired
4
Playin' In The Band
Hard blistering acid rock with the '71 country vox. 6 minutes, but with the seeds within it that would become Playin' as we know it in '72.
3
El Paso
Jerry is just doing his own thing..
3
And We Bid You Goodnight
No words, just the melody at the 6 minute mark of one of the best GDTRFB ever
5
Loser
Anthemic version with great chorus vocals. Could be the closing music for a great western movie.
3
Jack Straw
Strange, almost experimentally slower version with some problems, but different guitar lines. Almost a novelty.

Casey Jones
Like the Jack Straw earlier, they take a slower deliberate pace to create a new vibe. Here you can hear them jam with over the sound of a train. Cool.

Brown Eyed Women
All comes together tightly here with awesome KG accents to some stellar playing.
