Innnncredible version. Stellar show
7To Lay Me Down
Dig the Audience recording if you can...not perfect, but the depth and beauty are wonderfully captured...Jerry has a great solo as well
11Weather Report Suite
Beautiful, flowing and graceful
13China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Immense flow, wild Feelin' Groovy jam

Melodic and inventive, this one goes everywhere you can think of
Bridge jam really goes for it!
5Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
A monster version!
3Uncle John's Band
5Brown Eyed Women
very sweet instrumental break
27Eyes Of The World
Another smoking '74.
5It Must Have Been The Roses
It's like butter. The transition that is. 1/2Step>MHBTR
Scorcher start to finish. Keith comes up big, and Jerry goes ballistic in the final instrumental bridge. Check it out on Dave's Pix Vol. 2
Epic show opener (I mean how many Scarlet OPENERS were there really?!) and a ton 'o fun!!!
Trippy and intense
4Greatest Story Ever Told
Row Jimmy can't be too slow or it drags; Jerry's got to be on because the beat is tricky. This has both.
I love what Phil does on this one. This thing is short and sweet.
4Ramble On Rose
Jerry is in his element.
2Ship of Fools
Oversight City ... NBA Finals on mute, 7 31 in the air ... Beautiful Ship
1U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
A scorcher, love the energy on this one, really swingin'!
