90
Dark Star
The goodness for real. Euro '72s finest
31
Caution
Coming out of Dark Star > Sugar Magnolia, Jerry is in pure attack mode. Crazy energy.
11
Black Throated Wind
Whoaaaaa this into sitting on top of the world rules!
45
Cumberland Blues
They could actually hit the high notes in '72, and the jams? Goodness gracious--this one just rips a hole in the space/time continuum!
24
One More Saturday Night
Jer w/doublebends, then a series of doublestop slides. Bobby wails chords and goes hoarse at the end of the 1st stellar show of Europe72 run.
11
Truckin'
Yet another great '72 version.
6
Brown Eyed Women
One of the best from the Europe '72 tour.
42
Looks Like Rain
Stunning Europe '72 version.
8
Casey Jones
Fierce performance, hard driving ripper.
10
Hurts Me Too
Must listen and my favorite version.
13
Playin' In The Band
Something happens to Playing' in Europe. Check 'em out, one by one and watch it grow. This one is the bomb. Outrageous shredding.
8
Good Lovin'
Stop everything you're doing and listen to this now. No really, do it. Now.
3
Me and My Uncle
Not the tightest ending, but Jerry is all over this one.
11
Sugar Magnolia
Not the best from E72, but the transitions out of DS and into Caution are unbelievably tight. Billy tears it up on this one.
2
Bertha
I can't believe I get to submit this. Excellent start to this epic night. Jer throws in cool riffs as he sings and then just nails the last jam.
4
Mister Charlie
This show has such great flow and energy and just keeps it going after a tasty Bertha, MaMU.
2
Deal
Classic early deal! Just such a great show that everything is golden. Everyone should throw this E72 show in if its been awhile.
7
Mind Left Body Jam
Listed as a Dark Star, but the last 4 minutes of this are solidly similar to a Mind Left Body, kinda similar groove. You'll love this one!
4
Next Time You See Me
Everyone rips this one up!
3
Beat it on Down The Line
Not as epic as the night before, but continues this high energy set!
4
Tennessee Jed
They killed this song all tour! Just continues the energy of this fine Set!
10
Big Railroad Blues
This second set is just magic as they open with a smokin' Truckin and then continue with this hot Big Railroad!
