Sweet Beautiful Dark Star->Eyes-> China Doll
46Eyes Of The World
Out of an epic Dark Star
21Here Comes Sunshine
Garcia's phrasing is as sharp as a tack, really tight and engergetic
Breakneck version with an extra spicy solo
5U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
A standout version from a great show.
Brilliant, lightning-speed Jerry soloing behind Bobby. Worth many a listen in a great great show.
18Playin' 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?
This one does it for me.
Jerry is all over this one the vocals are on fire!!!!
3Beat it on Down The Line
The band sounds awesome in this one!!!!!!
11You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
Pretty solid version of this song!!!!!!!
14China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Not exploratory but incredibly well-played. This whole show should be officially released.
2nd ever, very interesting. Sounds like they're working out the feel, quite uptempo almost rocksteady (not reggae, yo) beat.
quick and opens for a monster dark star < eyes < china doll
Played with conviction, some hot playing from Keith
tasty 73 version
6Box of Rain
this one needs some love
4Brown Eyed Women
Jerry flubs some lyrics, but I liked the solo. Hints at the promise later to come in this well-known show.
3Looks 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.
4Me 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.
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.
9They Love Each Other
Early version with a bit of a pep in its step.
How was this not on here?
Ya'll know how great everything from this show is.
2One More Saturday Night
Keith tears this one up.
