1China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
One of those rare ones where China Cat plods a bit and they move into a blazing hot Rider. Great show all around, too.
11Playin' In The Band
Hard-driver with intense 10/4 jamming throughout. Phil and Billy give it extra oomph. Great mix with Keith and Jer up front and clear.

best lead you've ever heard on this song!
How has this Truckin been overlooked? So fucking hot!
1Not Fade Away
Manages to be blistering and gorgeous. Never heard a NFA like it

Usually not a fan, but Jerry is ripping in the back
2Sing Me Back Home
Anothergorgeous run at this classic, Both Donna and Jerry ae just so on here a true beautiful moving classic
4Comes A Time
a very emotional and mournful comes a time emerges from the ashes of an Atomic Dark Star. Crackling with emotion and energy a wonderful fragile CAT.
Extremelly confident spacey well sung and incredibly played an amazing powerful version. Follows Bobby telling the crowd Of Pigpen's illness.
Incredible early version. Great vocals from Jer and a stinging solo. Everything else melts away.
1Black Throated Wind
Solid, emotional version. Bobby was on.
2Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Uptempo, and with a hard swagger, with a beaut of a Rio section. 2nd ever, sounds like they're still settling on the vibe.
