Pigpen leads the band on an acid-drenched, climactic R&B jam.

Swing Low Sweet Chariot
warbly recording but awesome performance

New Speedway Boogie
Pure version, with just the right amount of menace and swagger. A great jam here too. Check it out.

The Other One
Fast and furious acid rush here. That they could go from bluegrass sweetness to this hard rock monster in one night is testament to their huge range.

Not Fade Away
1970, this is new and the boys sound so full of energy and excitement. The whole show has just been reseeded on IA, worth a listen.

Dancin' in the Streets
Epic wanderings from the “Woodacre Training Camp”
