Another fabulous version, the ending is so tender and emotional.

Vocally the best! Instrumentally transcendental!
Jerry and Keith slay this one
10The Race Is On
Wait for the end of the first verse...the band is playing so fast Bobby has to slow them down "Easy boys"
15The Other One
He's gone -> Trucking - > Other One -> Eyes -> China Doll... at the end of maybe the tightest 3 setter ever

Very tight - fast like this whole show is - plus the '73 extra lyric
A heavy version from a heavy show.
A massive run of He's Gone->Truckin'->The Other One->Eyes Of The World->China Doll

Not to be missed.
Another one from this classic show!

8You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
The vocals for Donna are low on the recording but the rest of the band are so tight this version really kicks ass!
spot on version!
Powerful and Energetic!
beautiful version out of a great Eyes
Grab the version with the audience patch.
Solid start to a top 10 show.Well sung,tight soloing coming in after Promised Land,herald of a show that just gets better and better.
They all nail it -- so bouncy and rapid and confident. The whole show is so cleanly recorded, too. Surprised this didn't have a single vote 'til now.
Adding this because this show is so damned good
