132Here Comes Sunshine
Perfect jam, as good as it gets
Super chill but funky version. Like no other version I have heard before.
26Nobody's Fault But Mine
Jerry sings this one with near desperation; from Truckin into the Other One with a sick jam this show just keeps on giving...
15Big Railroad Blues
This one's got some boogy. Keith gives Jer a big kick in the butt during the 2nd jam and they just take off!
Classic from Dick's Picks vol. 1
29The Other One
Dick's Picks 1 version
30Playin' In The Band
Really Heads? Not here yet? 21 minutes of super fine hotandheady jam. Blazing hot, capping off a year of just outrageous Playin' playing.
26Weather Report Suite
Just good enough for DP #1 people. How could this be left off the list?
Part of a real tasty He's Gone>Truckin>NFBM>Other One
Begins the excellent He's Gone>Truckin>NFBM>Other One
17Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Some sick keys work by Keith in a really great version from DP 1
8Eyes Of The World
Really groovy version! Jerry's got his jazzy slickness in this version. One of my favorites!
Shocked this wasn't here. Went to vote for it and couldn't find it. Excellent version. Please listen.
9Around and Around
6Black Throated Wind
Distinctly slower groove than others, like they were trying something new with it. Does it work? Not sure, but an interesting take on it.
From an epic show!!
Whole show needs to be here.
Super cool tricks and licks on this one. Definitely worth a listen!
