Dark Star
Sweet Beautiful Dark Star->Eyes-> China Doll
42
Eyes Of The World
Out of an epic Dark Star
19
Here Comes Sunshine
Garcia's phrasing is as sharp as a tack, really tight and engergetic
16
Bertha
Breakneck version with an extra spicy solo
5
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
A standout version from a great show.
5
El Paso
Brilliant, lightning-speed Jerry soloing behind Bobby. Worth many a listen in a great great show.
16
Playin' In The Band
Mellow in places, shredding in others, goes in and out of off-the-rails trippyness but doesn't meltdown. Why isn't this one already here?
11
China Doll
This one does it for me.
7
Loose Lucy
Jerry is all over this one the vocals are on fire!!!!
3
Beat it on Down The Line
The band sounds awesome in this one!!!!!!
10
You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
Pretty solid version of this song!!!!!!!
13
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Not exploratory but incredibly well-played. This whole show should be officially released.
8
Row Jimmy
2nd ever, very interesting. Sounds like they're working out the feel, quite uptempo almost rocksteady (not reggae, yo) beat.
5
Big River
quick and opens for a monster dark star < eyes < china doll
3
Promised Land
Played with conviction, some hot playing from Keith
4
Tennessee Jed
tasty 73 version
6
Box of Rain
this one needs some love
4
Brown Eyed Women
Jerry flubs some lyrics, but I liked the solo. Hints at the promise later to come in this well-known show.
3
Looks Like Rain
This song usually doesn't do it for me, but this is quite pretty. The SBD cuts out mid-solo, but it's a minor problem.
4
Me and My Uncle
Bobby sings the hell out of this one. I know we've all heard dozens of these, but this one had that little bit extra that throws it over the top.
3
Casey Jones
Follows a tasty "Playing" to wrap up Set I. There are problems with the sound (AUD patch), which just lets you hear the crowd roar.
9
They Love Each Other
Early version with a bit of a pep in its step.
3
Sugaree
How was this not on here?
4
Sugar Magnolia
Ya'll know how great everything from this show is.
2
One More Saturday Night
Keith tears this one up.
