Another early workup of the song, Jerry's voice for this show not that great but the playing is fantastic!

Estimated Prophet
Can't beat this version, espeically when factoring in that it is sandwiched between the best Friend of the Devil I have ever heard and a killer ShakeD

Friend of the Devil
Purely awesome, from the first note to the last.

Stagger Lee
Jerry's guitar work is unreal on this one...

Sugaree
Garcia gives it his all. Rippin' solos, and clear concise leads. Voice is a little rough, but he manages to hit pretty high levels of insanity.

Ollin Arageed
Deep, this gem is fantastic as always, truly cosmic music

Excellent stand alone Fire on the Mountain it rolls so nicely out of Ollin, Very heady reminiscent of Egypt. Very cosmic and Heady
