China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Underrated show and a powerhouse version
2
Sugaree
Jerry digs deep on this one and the boys deliver a tuned-in together performance
3
Mexicali Blues
Sure, this song is a throw-away, but it's also a chance for Jerry (and Bill...shit, everyone) to go off
2
They Love Each Other
'73 versions much preferred, and this early one comes through big-time
10
The Other One
Comes out guns blazing, gets real jazzy and freaky spacy
12
Here Comes Sunshine
Another great version on back-to-back nites!!
12
Bird Song
Lifts you off the ground like an ocean wave: A beautiful, buoyant, Phil-driven jam.
1
Jack Straw
Short and tight, follows a monster Bird Song and develops this great show's great energy.
1
The Race Is On
Just great. Fun, fast and tight: like a good horse race, after all.
7
Playin' In The Band
Sounds like Phil has ten extra fingers. Time furthur out... way out.
4
Truckin'
Ballsy and rockin with great energy, flows from HCS and then seamless into a great TOO. It's what's great about Truckin.
9
Eyes Of The World
Spring '73 is the fountain of youth for Eyes fans. This brilliant version has the first (?) Slipknot tease around 11:00. Great show all around.
6
China Doll
Gold Here. SUBLIME - this is where all the soft touches come together. Bob is especially deft with the underlying patterns. Phil is perfect.
1
You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
Really nice piano jam by Keith.
