20Eyes Of The World
This one gets into a really awesome soft, mellow jam. Really dig it
Hot ish, check this one
3Me and My Uncle
nice funky 70's version. Jerry doing some very nice lead on this
Pretty hot version for 77. Take a listen...
3Let 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.
4Ramble 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.
Dick's Picks 10
Keith's fills really stand out. More of an elastic bouncy version than leaden thumping one.
1Looks Like Rain
Another noteworthy '77 version. Listen for Jerry's melodic lines over Bob and Donna's vocal coda.
As focused and energetic as the rest of the show, Jerry plays with the phrasing of his solos without missing a beat.
3Pretty Peggy O
Lively version, practically rollicking!
5Mississippi 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.
1Ship of Fools
1U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
1Samson and Delilah
That's the stuff
