Wow - Part of a truly awesome segment. Truckin' > NFBM > Other One > drums > Jam > WRS. Top shelf
8Weather Report Suite
Awesome jam leading into the song, then solid execution
3Wang 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
5China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Qucik and Jazzy, HUGE Feelin' Groovy jam peak into Rider
4The Other One
Great The Other One into a sweet jam before falling into Weather Report
3Black 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.
Interrupted by bad fight in front of the stage. Phil goes bonkers, calls the security guard "Asshole". Weird scene/bad vibes.
I dig Bobby in the mix on this one.
Very cohesive version with a noticeable snap. And Phil’s prominent in the recording.
Do not miss! Jerry and Billy delicately dance across this while Phil subtly challenges the stability.
2Ramble On Rose
Sharp, delightful version. Supercharged Keith’s melodic lines will keep you guessing.
Jazzy and mellow, this Lucy is loose indeed
1Brown Eyed Women
Gone are the days when this was absent
Blooming like a red rose
