19Weather Report Suite
flawless wrs, bobby's sound great and jerry so sweet on the slide
A bit overlooked for summer '74, this version is one of the very best. Jerry's cool tone has a lot of bite!
4To Lay Me Down
A great version from a somewhat overlooked show.
The last few minutes of this jam are a bute!
Hotness, the NFBM jam is tight out of this one
Subtle, sublime beauty
Everything's perfect and beautiful in this one. Can we just say "All Scarlets from Summer '74 are epically heady", cause I don't know a bad one.
Some of the best boogie-woogie cowboy barroom stride piano from Keith here.
6Nobody's Fault But Mine
A seamless sweet groove - into a very cool TOO. This show doesn't get enough love - all Summer '74 is hot, but this is a real corker.
8The Other One
awesome rolling version goes into a uniquely floating spanish jam...do not miss this!
3Black Throated Wind
beautiful sequence Sugaree, BT Wind, IMHBTR absolutely wonderful
4U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Powerful performed in DC at the height of the watergate affair. Crowd went nuts.
2Pretty Peggy O
Killer Wharf Rat-> Around and Around-> Pretty Peggy- O (Fennario) amazing sequence unique and very 1974
Underrated version from '74,really together,well sung and great picking from Jerry. I'm really taking to this show,well worth a listen to it all.
6Let It Grow
Absolute best of 1974. Not kidding. Jerry's leads are ripping & confident. The band plays flawlessly.Can stand w/some of the best of '77. Must hear.
