8
China Cat Sunflower
First time China Cat Sunflower. Actually a 4:49 Dark Star>China Cat >The Eleven (1st time also) . Very experimental and rocking version.
8
Spanish Jam
First ever SJ, and possibly my new favorite! This incredible jam just keeps building and does not let up once for the entire 16 minutes!
3
The Other One
Really sweet embryonic version. The Cryptical Reprise gets pretty far out!
6
Morning Dew
heavy!
4
Turn On Your Love Light
Blazing start to an awe inspiring, historically massive show. It's pure. Pig and Bobby are especially fun during the hocket (vocal back and forth).
5
The Eleven
First version, out of the first China Cat ever. Epic show. Pigpen is on fire the whole night.
2
Born Cross Eyed
It rocks. A tight first Born Cross Eyed after a pretty rough New Potato Caboose. Love the '68 sound.
3
Dark Star
First-Live version. Whips right into China Cat. It deserves a listen.
2
Cryptical Envelopment
Intense psychedelic primal dead, typical short 1968 intro nice jam on the reprise
3
New Potato Caboose
Super early version delicious as always what ear candy this psychedelic acid drenched beauty is.
