33Feel Like A Stranger
This is the hot funk. Boys were feeling it for this one. Favorite version by a mile.
Heart wrenching and gorgeous. Rivals my favorite from Dead Set, but just a step below. Incredibly beautiful though, spilling with emotion
my favorite version, featured on the live album 'go to nassau'
5New Minglewood Blues
A real swanky affair
crisp with Jerry giving his heart..
26Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Great combo on "Go to Nassau." I really love Jerry at end of Sailor!
6Looks Like Rain
This whole album seems to go unnoticed but this version is so smooth
10China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Gotten good mileage outta this one the last few months.
3I Know You Rider
From Go to Nassau. It floats, while sounding like a carnival freight train. Band's on fire
Me and my uncle -> Big River. Two songs that are driven by the drums. Phenomenal!
1Me and My Uncle
Drum-driven version with great guitars and vocals. Leads right into Big River (Mr and my Uncle -> Big River)
1Around and Around
Rockin lead up to JBG
1Johnny B. Goode
Raucous close out to a grate set
