11Brown Eyed Women
21Here Comes Sunshine
first boston garden show; this one melts into space>bobby mcgee
21Eyes Of The World
Lightning fast and hot, last few minutes are especially jaw-dropping!
Passionate and heartfelt with beautiful ensemble vocals. Bobby's spider rap follows.
10Playin' In The Band
An extensive, long strange trip. Hot in places, then trippy and spaced out. Fast. Phil and Jerry in total unity.
14Me and Bobby McGee
Out of a 20 min mindbent HCS this is a sweet, heartfelt chillout. Great '73 sound.
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...."
8Greatest Story Ever Told
I always thought that Summer '74 was the best period for this tune but this version is sick.
Jerry and Keith trade some slinky solos in this gem
4Box of Rain
Box of Rain usually pales in comparison to the studio version but this is great rendition from a excellent show
hot heady stuff
1U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Pass the cheese!!!!
2Weather Report Suite
Only the prelude. It serves as the transition between a +20 min HCS>Bobby McGee and eyes>china doll
One of the stongest and cleanest JS I have heard. Bobby is spot on here.
2You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
Donna is hot hot hot
1Ramble On Rose
Lovely, like everything in this epic show.
Very well played start to finish, Bobby is high in the mix for once, really good playing all round
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
