Another great version from 1971. Love all the NFA>GDRFB from 71.
4Turn On Your Love Light
Super hot version from a jail. Road Trips V1:3 bonus disc.
5China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Philzone masterclass. Hot and tight jam, the Rider three-part harmonies sound like some of the acoustic versions from the previous year.
One of the slower waltz versions, with lovely vocals from Cowboy Bob, who gives us a nice country warble. Sweet backup harmony and Jer being Jer.
