Me and Bobby McGee
My new favourite version, and I never choose "favourites". Passionate perfect Bobby, the band so tight, Jer's perfect harmony, Phil driving it all.

New Minglewood Blues
Closing down the Fillmore East in fine form.

I Second That Emotion
So Sweet. One of the greatest overall shows of any band, EVER.

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
