Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Just exactly perfect...sooooo beautiful as they fade into "across the rio grand-eo"
5
Around and Around
Reelin' and a-rockin' to close a dynamite first set...transcends my typical desire to dismiss this song
9
Big River
jerry is all over this
12
Playin' In The Band
25 minutes of nirvana. Absolutely everything a Playin' fan could look for - with that strange summer '73 blissed-out "intense mellow".
8
Me and My Uncle
By far the most snarlingly bad-assed version of 1973. Jer's lines it up and shoots it down, soloing intesely throughout the whole song.
9
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Rock-solid China with Jerry twisting and pulling its melodic basis throughout a great solo + great Feeling Groovy trans. into Rider.
5
Loose Lucy
A greasy gritty super-funk sex parade. Wasn't often the Dead sounded this horny after Pigpen died.
8
The Other One
Cool and fast w/ 12min jam before 1st (and only) verse. At 08:30 Phil goes teases what sounds like Milking the Turkey. Is that possible?
3
Brown Eyed Women
Typical mellow summer '73 style, this one is sweeter than soda pop
1
Sugaree
Nice soulful version
1
The Race Is On
Great version from a great show.
2
Don't Ease Me In
Another killer version with everyone representing.
4
Row Jimmy
Lovely, no hurry work from everyone especially the harmonic touches by Weir make this one just as sweet as honey. DJ adds nice backup too.
4
Truckin'
Kills truckin>other one> space > wharf rat. This whole show smokes get the aud quick!

Looks Like Rain
Twinkles with emotion. Contained. Sounds mellow and heartfelt and oh the melodicness.
