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

Warning: May cause goosebumps. Bertrando's AUD is VG+.
12
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
3
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.
