Truckin'
Wow - Part of a truly awesome segment. Truckin' > NFBM > Other One > drums > Jam > WRS. Top shelf
5
Weather Report Suite
Awesome jam leading into the song, then solid execution
2
Wang Dang Doodle
The SBD I scooped had a Wang Dang Doodle-ish soundcheck that came with it. Some pretty slinky shit. Worth checking if you can track it down
2
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Qucik and Jazzy, HUGE Feelin' Groovy jam peak into Rider
3
The Other One
Great The Other One into a sweet jam before falling into Weather Report
1
Black Throated Wind
Keith on organ just kills it. He's hot in the mix and the song has a totally different feel for it. Show overshadowed by Nov.-Dec. '73 but worth it.
1
Casey Jones
Interrupted by bad fight in front of the stage. Phil goes bonkers, calls the security guard "Asshole". Weird scene/bad vibes.
2
Big River
I dig Bobby in the mix on this one.
1
Row Jimmy
Very cohesive version with a noticeable snap. And Phil’s prominent in the recording.
1
Jack Straw
Do not miss! Jerry and Billy delicately dance across this while Phil subtly challenges the stability.

Ramble On Rose
Sharp, delightful version. Supercharged Keith’s melodic lines will keep you guessing.
