Here Comes Sunshine
first boston garden show; this one melts into space>bobby mcgee
22
Eyes Of The World
Lightning fast and hot, last few minutes are especially jaw-dropping!
3
Row Jimmy
Passionate and heartfelt with beautiful ensemble vocals. Bobby's spider rap follows.
10
Playin' In The Band
An extensive, long strange trip. Hot in places, then trippy and spaced out. Fast. Phil and Jerry in total unity.
14
Me and Bobby McGee
Out of a 20 min mindbent HCS this is a sweet, heartfelt chillout. Great '73 sound.
6
China Doll
Delicate an gentle - coming after a twisting rocketship of an Eyes, saying, "everything will be okay folks if we can just all come down together...."
9
Greatest Story Ever Told
I always thought that Summer '74 was the best period for this tune but this version is sick.
8
Loose Lucy
Jerry and Keith trade some slinky solos in this gem
4
Box of Rain
Box of Rain usually pales in comparison to the studio version but this is great rendition from a excellent show

U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Pass the cheese!!!!

Weather Report Suite
Only the prelude. It serves as the transition between a +20 min HCS>Bobby McGee and eyes>china doll
2
Jack Straw
One of the stongest and cleanest JS I have heard. Bobby is spot on here.

Ramble On Rose
Lovely, like everything in this epic show.

Deal
Very well played start to finish, Bobby is high in the mix for once, really good playing all round

Sugar Magnolia
Well played like every song of the show. Hot and heady

Not normally a huge fan of this live, but it gets really hot in the last few minutes. So good
