Playin' In The Band
Thoughtful first set closer. Spacey wheel sandwich. One of my favorites.
95
Terrapin Station
They nailed the first one ever
8
All New Minglewood Blues
Updated Minglewood review, same show as Terrapin debuted. Sounds clean & tight!
32
The Wheel
If there's another Wheel like this one, I haven't heard it. Unique loaded w/dynamics and little Bill/Mickey shuffles. Goes back>PitB...in the 1st set!
12
Samson and Delilah
Pacing and perfected-dance-shuffling the rhythm section w/Bobby fills and Jer's all-over-the-fretboard attack make this a definitive A+ version.
13
Tennessee Jed
Arriving t'ween Samson & tMNS, this justifiably famous Jed (much discussed b.i.t.tape days) can be enjoyed repeatedly. Squeeze out those squeakers Jer
11
Around and Around
Really, you cannot describe this rocker in words... You must listen.
10
Deal
Sick Version
5
Promised Land
get the snb betty board. Keith and Jerry really mesh. falling downstairs collapsing at end of song is great . first show of 77.
16
Estimated Prophet
Mostly because it's a favorite version and it isn't listed here. Solid version & great recording make it an honorable mention at the very least.
16
Sugaree
3 rockin instrumental breaks on this great version from the Swing.

Mama Tried
WHAO! Did everybody miss this version? Short and sweet, HIGH Energy version.
