Weather Report Suite
If unfamiliar, check this immediately. Jam goes the distance
32
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
comin out of the BEST JAM EVER into a nice pre-lyrics jam, puttin the lid on the bottle of this epic show
44
Mind Left Body Jam
This version is the standard. All other versions are compared to this one.
15
To Lay Me Down
Another cool version.
13
Ship of Fools
A nice encore version.
10
Sugar Magnolia
Smooth as silk, as melodic as they come. Kicks off a classic 2nd set also...
7
Big River
I love how Jerry tricks out his background vocals on this one.
14
Scarlet Begonias
A fantasticly jazzed out version, Garica's long slithering solo is the longest to date...
6
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
3 excellent Garcia solos, instead of the usuall 2. A perfect way to close out this legendary 2nd set!
2
Sugaree
May-June '74 might be my top time for Sugaree. This just builds up to so much intensity. Great stuff.
3
Space
Sea Stones: Space noise electronica with Phil & Ned. Not for everyone, but sends me into well into the interstellar place.
3
Deal
Very laid back but sooo tasty. Jerry's lines are so supple.
2
Row Jimmy
great one
1
It Must Have Been The Roses
No solo, but lots of beautiful little nuances hiding in the verses. Standout performance by every supporting member.
7
Let It Grow
super heady- check this one out!
1
Promised Land
Into GDTRFB
8
Dark Star
I know this is apart of the 27 minute MLTB Jam, but clearly half way into it...it becomes DS. An amzing 27 minutes, regradless!
1
Beat it on Down The Line
Not just high-energy but a little manic and dangerous. Listen for some sneaky fills by Keith.
1
Me and Bobby McGee
Played fast, sounding almost triumphant. Very cleanly played with some attention-grabbing Jerry.
