Sugar Magnolia
Super high energy finish to a wild set. Jerry really takes off down the stretch. (How was this version not listed here earlier??)
8
Gloria
Bobby's birthday at the world famous Melkeweg. Yummy brownies make this version extra special.
9
Ripple
A very consistent version of a song they had a hard time with live. Better than any Warfield version I've heard.
9
Bird Song
Best Acoustic version I've heard from a lesser appreciated show...Jerry's vocals are spot on and very and some very nice soloing. Tops any Warfield
3
The Wheel
Not the longest, by any stretch, but incredibly airy and beautiful for Bobby's B-day. Worth a listen for sure
4
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
This is a lightening fast bowl of nose clams, played 100x the speed of hyperspace. Worth it just to hear how fast the boys ventured to take this on
3
Black Peter
Smoldering, wicked guitar solos, vocals are haunting and majestic. Emotionally powerful Jerry rings every word for what he can
2
Monkey and the Engineer
Happy Birthday Bobby in Amsterdam! Hell of a show.
2
On The Road Again
Killer version to open this unique show with borrowed instruments.
2
The Race Is On
Absolutely, this acoustic version should be here.
3
Dire Wolf
Acoustic...borrowed istruments...Melkweg!
2
Cassidy
A unique sounding Cassidy. Parts of this almost sound like a studio release of a different band playing like the dead.
