7Black Throated Wind
jer's "lil extra" b4 St Louis lyric makes this one....
9Tomorrow Is Forever
Not greatly sung but well played and a rarity to boot.
A hot version in Texas!
11Box of Rain
A really nice tight version from 1972. A bit different with Keith and Donna vs the 80s/90s versions.
A pretty, early version from a great show.
Lesh takes the reigns about half way through and from then on, this one is pure magic. Very uplifting jam to close, then buttery segue into WRS
Wooo hooooo. Jerry snarls on this one.
2Weather Report Suite
The Prelude only, but really it's a thematic and 2nd meltdown to the mind-blowing Dark Star. Under certain circumstances this one could be dangerous.
11Playin' In The Band
Another fine Playin' from a great stretch of Playins'
4China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Uncategorizably brilliant transition jam. Sweet sweet Rider. Overshadowed by the immortal PITB that follows. Give a spin, it won't disappoint.
7Ramble On Rose
Absolutely stunning Jerry vocals, beautifully sung.
Great rockin' country dead opener to a hot set two.
A rip-roaring rendition, with Jerry ripping licks, Keith banging keys, and Billy machine-gunning the backbeat.
1Me and My Uncle
In TX the gang throws some special sauce all over this.
2Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Super chill Rio Grandeo into a blissed out wind down.
1Around and Around
Band is peaking and sparks are flying.
Extra pop and stomp all over this one.
2Big Railroad Blues
Powerfully locomotive version with lots of fun behind it.
1Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
And the mix goes to Phil!
