Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Jerry's solos groove with this great Foxtrot Ballroom melody and the band just swings along with him. So Perfect!!

Scarlet Begonias
Awesome early version. Jerry has a great solo at the end.

Brown Eyed Women
Smoking versions, highlight of the set to me. Jerry and phil dominating the tune

Around and Around
This jam goes off the rails and completely mental. End of the 1st set - sheesh!

Jack Straw
Super, clean sweet lines on this one due to the tunes tempo and Jerry's tone

Big River
Energetic, rocking version from a decent set of Philly shows, some of which appear on DP31

Deal
One of best of 1974. Tight, Jerry inventive and confident, good soloing. Everything a Deal should be. Give it a listen.

Me and Bobby McGee
The psychedelic '74 touch is soo good on this tune

Take A Step Back
The folks up front are looking decidedly two-dimensional...

China Cat Sunflower
The China in this China Rider is simply amazing. Fantastic extra long jam before the Feelin' Groovy jam.
