It Must Have Been The Roses
Out of a sweet Half-Step and into oblivion, Weir and Keith really shine

Big River
Jerry and Bob are off the hook flying off the handle going for it! Prime time stuff

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Warning: May cause goosebumps. Bertrando's AUD is VG+.
10
Playin' In The Band
You'll hear voices and see faces in this abstract assault which showcases exceptional group interplay. Bertrando's AUD is VG+.

Truckin'
The high energy middle of a spacey, jammy, Wall of Sound sammich

Ship of Fools
Just wonderful version
2
Around and Around
Fully rockin' blowout to close a lovely summertime 1st set: Not my favorite song, but this one really kicks.
6
Space
Phil & Ned: By far the most compact and Space-like. Gargantuan Martian landscapes and insect-shaped UFOs. Sounds like Frippertronics. Heavy stuff.

Tennessee Jed
Great version, perfect FOB ECM22P recording.

Me and My Uncle
More '74 perfection, Jerry solo is worth a listen. Great FOB recording.

Sugaree
Great version, not the longest but it's still great. Phil sounds nice on this FOB recording.
