7China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Another magical rendition in Reno. Give this a whirl, you will not be disappointed. The China outro is fantastic!!!
4The Other One
Edgy and exploratory, on so many levels. K.Tobin matrix is absolutely sick! Wall of Sound reincarnated! Billy in the zone! Bob flubs lyrics, no matter
Jerry and Keith wailing big time!!!!
Inventive and crystal clear jam, leading into a 'nobody's fault' jam and a killer TOO>MLB where the '74 sound is just taking shape. Underappreciated.
4Mind Left Body Jam
Beautiful, mellow version. Garica's tone is especially sweet, with an almost country-ish flavor; sounds like he's using a bit of slide?
2Ship of Fools
absolutely beautiful… masterful, best version for sure
3Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
thoughtful and airy just how I like these this one pays off beautifully.
Comes out of a MLB jam, a big fat mellow groove sets out what is one of those weeks of really good versions.
Intense! The boys seem to be fired up out in that heavy dessert wind.
