I Second That Emotion
Reminiscent of early TLEO's, beautiful wailing Garcia guitar, and it's just such a nice song
4
Good Lovin'
Are you in the nookie bidness? Yet again, Pig needs somebody to fix his refrigerator.
6
Hard to Handle
Overlooked gritty superfunk. Bobby solos, then Jerry takes him to school. Phil, meanwhile is nuking the world big time.
8
Cold Rain and Snow
This is a MONSTER with special riffing and slower cough syrup tempo - seriously cool!
2
Next Time You See Me
Fantastic Pigpen doing his thang
4
Bertha
Wonderful bouncy version with loads of Phil
6
Truckin'
Loose and bluesy upfront then Jer gets riff happy with some sweet bends while Bobby blows power chords - a really cool racket here.
4
Me and My Uncle
Trail dusty and raw with sparky Jerry solo - hot 71 style
2
Loser
'71 Losers are the raw, real deal. Biting, snakey leads with a despaired vocal delivery.
2
Uncle John's Band
Garage Band John - crunch, thump crunch crunch...
3
Me and Bobby McGee
Confident Soulful Sonically Strong
1
Casey Jones
Energetic

Sugar Magnolia
