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
4
Mexicali Blues
Sure, this song is a throw-away, but it's also a chance for Jerry (and Bill...shit, everyone) to go off
3
They Love Each Other
'73 versions much preferred, and this early one comes through big-time
14
The Other One
Comes out guns blazing, gets real jazzy and freaky spacy
14
Here Comes Sunshine
Another great version on back-to-back nites!!
15
Bird Song
Lifts you off the ground like an ocean wave: A beautiful, buoyant, Phil-driven jam.
2
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.
8
Playin' In The Band
Sounds like Phil has ten extra fingers. Time furthur out... way out.
6
Truckin'
Ballsy and rockin with great energy, flows from HCS and then seamless into a great TOO. It's what's great about Truckin.
11
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.
7
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.
2
You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
Really nice piano jam by Keith.
1
Looks Like Rain
Absolutely beautiful. Prime 73.
1
Deal
Solid

Box of Rain
Wonderful. Jerry's guitar is so lyrical.

Phil bombs on a Saturday night
