4
Not Fade Away
This NFA motors and the GDTRFB is a solid outing, save for some significant caterwauling from Donna Jean
6
Black Throated Wind
Nice early version. Jerry hits a sweet spot at the end licks
12
Cumberland Blues
Wow, this one is a heater
7
Brokedown Palace
Dick's Picks 30 is a good one... Bo Diddley on Disc 1... This Brokedown on a standout Disc 2
8
Looks Like Rain
Beautiful with the pedal steel.
3
Big Railroad Blues
Tasty Big Railroad. Great DPn 30 here.
7
Casey Jones
Drivin' version here. This show deserves some more props.
11
Two Souls in Communion
Another beautiful version from 1972. This song always seems like Pig's swan song. One of the best versions.
5
Hurts Me Too
Over 8 minute version of this real gem.
8
The Other One
Dick's Picks 30. Band is about to leave for Europe and gives a preview of the tour's signature jam style. Astonishing.
5
One More Saturday Night
Everybody's Dancing At The Old Academy (DP30)
5
Tennessee Jed
An Energetic Version (DP30)
6
Truckin'
A more uptempo version where the band really gels nicely. You can hear Pigpen's organ shining on it, which is often lost in the mix.
4
Sugar Magnolia
Absolutely sick Sugar Magnolia->The other one. Highlighted by Keith and Jerry. Really fun energized crowd.
3
El Paso
"Thank's Texans" Phil sez to the NY crowd. This one is a rollicking good time. Jer is all over it behind a great Cowboy Bob showcase.
3
Playin' In The Band
Shocked it isn't here yet. Did you stop at Donna's beastly howl? If you did, you missed Jerry rip spacetime. Listen up and dig this Playin', really.
2
Mexicali Blues
Tuneup for Europe.
3
Mister Charlie
The best Mr. Charlie from the Academy of Music run of March 1972 (in my opinion) Follows a fantastic "You Win Again"
3
Next Time You See Me
A solid version from the Academy run
