He's Gone
Sweet rendition. Almost sounds like they’re trying to get back to Bird Song before Phil starts The Other One.

Truckin'
Definately should be in the converation as heady. Smokin' second set opener to this very fine show.

Sing Me Back Home
As heartfelt as the Europe versions. Worth a listen. Lots of epic stuff on DP 23.

Casey Jones
Powerful version from one of the strongest overall September '72 shows.

Sugar Magnolia
With tasteful hippychick tambo accompaniment. the Wolfson aud drops us in the crowd - levitating raw power.

Mexicali Blues
Serious giddyup.

Me and My Uncle
Total badassery. This one bites down hard and has a little menace to it, as befits a song about murder.
4
Uncle John's Band
This show has biting hardness throughout, then this seems a bit la-la until the 7/4 parts, and that grit returns with crunching nastiness. Excellent!

One More Saturday Night
Smokin' hot encore to finish off one brilliant mother of a show. OMSN isn't many folk's fave tune, but this one just rocks hard.
