Eyes Of The World
This one gets into a really awesome soft, mellow jam. Really dig it
1
Sugar Magnolia
Hot ish, check this one
2
Me and My Uncle
nice funky 70's version. Jerry doing some very nice lead on this
16
St. Stephen
Pretty hot version for 77. Take a listen...
3
Let It Grow
Supercharged manic Garica jazz-shredding!!! Amazing flow and energy...a clear rival of 10/29/77, at least in pure white light intensity.
3
Ramble On Rose
Faster than usual tempo with just a brilliant Jerry bridge jam and no missed lyrics make this one a not-to-be-missed version.
2
Estimated Prophet
Dick's Picks 10
2
Dire Wolf
Keith's fills really stand out. More of an elastic bouncy version than leaden thumping one.
1
Looks Like Rain
Another noteworthy '77 version. Listen for Jerry's melodic lines over Bob and Donna's vocal coda.
2
Row Jimmy
As focused and energetic as the rest of the show, Jerry plays with the phrasing of his solos without missing a beat.
1
Pretty Peggy O
Lively version, practically rollicking!
4
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Describing the headiness of this tune is a daunting task. Show opener. Lyrically tight, with Jerry sending us on a mystical journey.
