Incredible verrsion of one of the best shows of 71'. They were so relaxed you can tell they were having fun this night!
4Big Boss Man
The boys were in a really nice place this night. Killer harp work and Jerry is smoking. This is one of the better shows of 71 IMO!!
2Me and Bobby McGee
Not the biggest fan of this song, but this version is nice and mellow!
2Next Time You See Me
Pigpen in top form here. Gotta love this early blues!!
15Hard to Handle
Starts off with Pigpen improving lyrics then Bobby and Jerry battle off each other beautifully. Give it a listen!!
Europe '71...Not as ballyhooed, but Pig Pen was hot as Paris in Summertime.
3Me and My Uncle
Great sound. Some tuning/monitor problems earlier but by this they've worked it out. Nice clean version in what turns out to be a killer show.
Strong and powerful, like all the best versions of BP. Deep emotions on great pulse to this one.
5The Other One
Absolutely fantastic space version, goes off in all kinds of crazy directions.
2Sing Me Back Home
another beautiful version, love this jail cell lament this is gorgeous
wonderful moves beautifully from a mesmerizing the other one.
Punchy with some heat. Pigs tone on the pipe organ(?) or electric piano makes this special too. Source:CM
10China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Nice and loose jammin'
This RIPS nicely but then I love all these... One drummer combo.
The boys are loose and having fun they rock this and biff the end - then bring it back.
Pig on the pipe organ this clear and smokes nicely.
They crush this one sweetly for the french crowd.
