Wharf Rat
If I had to pick one month for great Wharf Rat's, I'd pick June '74...fortunately, I don't have to pick.
7
Sugar Magnolia
Dancetastic!
3
Jack Straw
Velvety smooth with Jerry and Keith adding some great accents and fills...bridge solo is very nice!
3
Deal
Unique version, Jer is inspired
9
Scarlet Begonias
Tight version; jam has bounce, pizzaz, and energy spilling all over the place...these '74 Scarlets are a breed all their own!
18
Eyes Of The World
Nice melodies from Jerry, hot Phil soloing, then a unique mellow and spacey segue into Wharf Rat
3
Sugaree
One of the (for me) rare versions of Sugaree that never drags, but keeps building and building with great intensity.
17
Playin' In The Band
If you like long jazzy excursions, you get 28 minutes before a gorgeous slow descent back into the theme
4
Feelin' Groovy Jam
Beautifully executed, from one of my favorite China > Riders
4
Me and My Uncle
Fast, loud and totally awesome
7
Ship of Fools
Awesome Ship from a GREAT show and a GReat year.
4
Me and Bobby McGee
Absolutely lovely version just damn near perfect, amazing. Everyone is as close to perfect as can be.

Bertha
Unique bounce to this one...slower than usual for '74, but still neat.

El Paso
Not sure if it was intentional or a minor stumble, but at the very beginning Billy plays something that sounds like the clicking heels of cowboy boots
