Boston Music Hall - Band forgot how to end it and started back up again; crowd goes crazy when mirror ball lit up
4Big Railroad Blues
Number one of the big 3
10One More Saturday Night
Number 3 of the big 3. Best 3 song set ender ever!!!
Short but funky and awesome
Crystal clear pigpen!!!
1Playin' In The Band
Pushes against the melody: Late '71 and the song's potential is about to burst free in the months ahead. You can feel it, and it's good.
Sweet as honey. Holds together in perfect harmony and never drags.
3Turn On Your Love Light
Pulsing and free. Bill sounds like he has triple the arms. Pig sweats some blues, Garcia liquifies. Lock yourself in, strap up, and don't look back.
Up tempo and forceful jamming. A strong version.
1Uncle John's Band
Shredding solo over the 7/4 section and lots of dark power here, though there are some mix issues and maybe some tape speed wobble. Clean versions?
5Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
More '71 style jams here - nice workout.
1Johnny B. Goode
Rockin' encore in Boston.
