Soaring version. Show is wall to wall highlights
39
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Musician's music - great sharing - Bob's on Fire thru transition, phil's just on something the whole show!
42
Truckin'
A blistering 30 minute Truckin' jam.
40
Here Comes Sunshine
Top notch version from a classic show
54
Playin' In The Band
Great extended spacey jam. Check out around 05:10 - 05:40 for what sounds impossibly like a FTM tease. PHIL !
17
Nobody's Fault But Mine
coming off truckin', this jam leads into an amazing Phil solo and then almost 12 minutes of the most ethereal sound .... sublime ....
21
Black Peter
A major hilight of a show chock full of 'em. Just wonderful emotion.
28
He's Gone
'73 was a special year for He's Gone. Could Keith play any sweeter than on this version? I think not.
13
The Race Is On
Usually let this tune slip on by but this one is really sweet ,even Donna sings in tune !
18
The Other One
Well jammed version from a great show
10
Space
My old cassette had this space listed as "Smoking Craters"... that's about right!
13
Tennessee Jed
Whole show obviously needs some love on here. Just a friendly reminder.
16
Wharf Rat
Whole show needs some love! Part of an all-time sequence.
7
Sugar Magnolia
Bit pitchy, prob. because the band is exhausted from what comes before it.
15
Sugaree
Laid-back, mellow, smooth. Zero gravity and heartfelt.
13
Looks Like Rain
Delicate subtly from Garcia, emotive playing.
13
Jack Straw
Contemplative smooth vocal section, great filling. Morphing into a perfectly paced water-fall of fingerpicking energy.
18
Box of Rain
Might be my favourite studio song. They never did the song any justice live, but this version is really good.
7
Feelin' Groovy Jam
Jerry for sure was feeling it during the China>Rider transition. So hot it burns.
7
Promised Land
This show deserves more love

Brown Eyed Women

Casey Jones
Encore version, the band sounds exausted yet they bring the house down with this one.
17
Row Jimmy
fully electric w no slide.his second guitar solo you believe he peeks only realizing he isn't done hitting higher notes ever higher like an or orgasm
13
Deal
102% perfect. Incredibly sweet.

Mexicali Blues
It's a great little tune when they play it like they did in summer '73.

Big River
Keith (and everybody) is so on point in this twangy humdinger.
