Weather Report Suite
Tasty textures. Great soundboards are available for this awesome jam.

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Hard-charging drumming from Billy leads the way. Best MLB jam in this pairing I've ever heard. Hard to believe it wasn't listed yet.

Morning Dew
Thunderous peaks, delicate valleys, and everything in between. Bleeds out of an epic Dark Star

Brown Eyed Women
Bouncy, energetic version

Cumberland Blues
Good ol' country rock and roll at its finest.

Very mellow yet authoritative. Slinky. Jerry's solo melts like no other. One of my favorite solo's he's ever done.

Ship of Fools
The second live version has a cool slightly different feel.

Tight little version here. Bare bones beginning and cowboy Bob at the helm

Spanish Jam
Super short segment of Spanish Jam, but its so unique as the theme is played amongst a pyschadelic background sound. Awesome.
