Heady goodness all around. Definitely taken OUT THERE...some fine grooves too
20

He's Gone -> The Other One -> Wharf Rat ; Beatiful transition into the other one
7
Wharf Rat
Great version.
1
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Extremelly fun early performance of Half step. Jerry has a real cool bounce to his playing. His solos are VERY tasty on this GEM.
4
Brown Eyed Women
Smoking hot a song they just had dialed in in 1972. Blistering guitar from Jerry really a great version.
3
Truckin'
Has the number one song in Turlock California introduction. Short exit jm due to a broken string, Bobby announced this from stage
4
El Paso
Bobby does his best Tina Turner impression when introducing this song. Fun and love Bobby's bad humor
4
Cold Rain and Snow
Jer's got somethin to say and it's URGENT. Love Keith's playin here.
5
Playin' In The Band
Jer bites down hard all over this and Phil is a monster - solid
6
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
China Cat shines bright with strong transition jam - Jer belts out the headlight line in the Rider and Phil barrel rolls all through the pocket.
5
Sugar Magnolia
Rip this one in hot style for the Boulder Nectar.
6
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
The entire stadium of heads got their speeding ticket punched by the gang on this one.
6
Rockin' Pneumonia
Cause it's fun - that's why.
8
Not Fade Away
Both takes groove but the reprise is particularly chewy.
1
One More Saturday Night
The rockin' encore for the longest concert of 1972.
2
Sugaree
Continues one of the great stretches of peak Dead right after Veneta. Great jam, B- sound quality though.
3
Bird Song
Don't let the murky and C+ sound stop you from this gem. Would someone with C. Miller's phone number ask him about this show, please?
2
Jack Straw
Give it a listen and you will hear a Straw that's aces - what a tight little nugget.
2
Ramble On Rose
Collectively nail this with some X-factor swing and swagger.
1
Loser
Looking for a new favorite Loser with tone and hot licks - look no further.
