Unthinkable that such headiness be left from the lists! Stunning swagger, swooshing Phil, bril transition, mad jams.

Promised Land
The slower tempo here lets Jerry and Keith stretch out some during their solos.

El Paso
you're either going to love Jerry's filigree or take it as noodling. I think it adds something to the cowboy songs.

Mama Tried
this whole show is more sedate and slower than some of the others from earlier this week/tour. Nice Jerry support, good vocals from Bobby.
