Dancin' in the Streets
How is this not on here? All you really have to say is 2/14/70, but with that being said...this one is epic.
3
Turn On Your Love Light
A Lovelight on Valentine's Day? Pig and the band tear it up.
2
Wake Up Little Susie
This song is always a treat on a 1970 acoustic set. Wish they had played it in the 1980 or other years, acoustic sets.
5
The Eleven
Why not here yet? This show has it all, and this Eleven just slays it. Balls out, high-energy jams from everyone.
4
Katie Mae
As beautiful as they come.
2
Mama Tried
In spite of a bit of tape wobble, this is an otherwise pristine version, with everyone keyed up right. A tight solo and a fun time.
5
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
How is this not here?? Dicks picks 4... a classic primal china>rider no doubt.
3
Feedback
Following a very hot caution and leading into AWBYG, sublime
1
Cold Rain and Snow
Intimate version. Bob is high in the mix and brilliant. Vocals are living room intimate. Band is listening to itself in heartrending fashion.

Black Peter
heartfelt version!
