Cassidy
Awesome drums and keys
2
The Music Never Stopped
Very tight, great transitions.
5
Wharf Rat
Powerfl and relaxed, a beautiful version following the cosmic craziness that occured before it Eyes->Drums->Happiness is drumming-> Wharf Rat. Unique
4
Dancin' in the Streets
another heady funky dancing, great donna on this one, June of 76 Bobby plays almost same songs nightly butthey sound inspired and fresh,amazing feat.
10
High Time
one of my favorite from back in the days of tapes.
8
Fire On The Mountain
This "Happiness is Drumming," (Hart) is proto-Fire, i.e., FOTM (Hart-Hunter) without lyrics.
3
Promised Land
Up and jumping show opener from the first note. Keith's solo is brilliant.
2
Looks Like Rain
Brilliant rise to a climactic finish. Jerry soloing like a man possessed behind sweet Bobby/Donna '76 harmonies. Nice one.
1
Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
High energy and zigzagging, this is a fast one. Supplication is tons of fun, even if they don't quite stick the landing.
3
Not Fade Away
Beautiful a capella outro here and check out Bobby's polyrythmic harmolodism during the last solo section for a treat.
2
They Love Each Other
If you like the '76 sound..
2
The Wheel
That spacious, unadorned June 1976 sound is so perfect for The Wheel. This one's dynamic and delivered with feeling. Cool show.
