Feel Like A Stranger
Really like what Brent brings to the table here...segues into an equally hot Franklin's

Franklin's Tower
Late '81 is a fine time, and this hot version comes out of a sweet set-two-opening Stranger

Terrapin Station
Solid version.

Space
If you like some of Jerry's guitar effects from early versions of "Dark Star," give this a listen! Short but sweet.

Not Fade Away
Hits a great groove early on, with some cool interplay before the first verse.

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
I think Jerry's working ideas out in new places in the fretboard during the "China" solo, and Brent is contributing some interesting colors.

Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Great Sailor SAint in Champain-Urbana, Follows a hot stranger franklins combo
