137Playin' In The Band
This Playing is truly epic. Intense"Brain Melt' feeback jam that disintigrates into nothingness only to rise like a Phoenix as the most beautiful MLB.
Holy beautiful version! Jerry hits the tingly goodness on this one. Very nice
51Cold Rain and Snow
The band sure brought it on this presumably cold night in Boston...things heat up right from the start
Sweetness right here.
51Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
35Weather Report Suite
Excellent, post song jams especially have a very sharp attack
54Mind Left Body Jam
Comes out so weet from a disassembled Playin'. The Aud is better to listen to.
Perhaps the most distinctive and spacey version they played. Mellow and poignant. My favorite.
Wonderful Stella into classic Morning Dew
Really? No votes for this incredible version!
Briliant version outta He's Gone, forsakes the all out bluesy, rockin' type of Truckin' for a snaky, bluesy, up-to-no-good sound.
18Brown Eyed Women
Surprised to not see this on here yet. Great, soulful playing all around, with some funny banter and a Beer Barrel Polka afterwards.
11Beat it on Down The Line
Typically not a catch your ear kinda tune, but this one did for me, just on point throught. Although this whole show cooks. Check out Dick's 14.
Slow version with really nice vocals
A lovely vocal, loping swinging version
6The Race Is On
'73 is a helluva year for this song
Surprised this one isn't here.
Nice peak bro.
Last song from this all-time great show to be nominated...great version.
