Row Jimmy
Weirs lays down the subtle sad slide guitar for the bros in far away Egypt. Great Row Jimmy vibe...

Final Sunrise in Egypt with an eclipse.
5
Aiko Aiko
Iko in Egypt.
5
Stella Blue
A sweet version in Egypt.
27
Shakedown Street
In the pocket start to finish.
26
Fire On The Mountain
The center of a Ollin Arrageed > Fire > Iko triptych. Included as a bonus track on the "Shakedown" CD. Just exactly perfect.

Truckin'
Awesome version here. These ae very under-rated showxs from egypt. Some very inspired playing.

Looks Like Rain
The versions of most songs in Egypt are a little different and chill in a good way. Cool Jerry guitar work at end.
22
I Need A Miracle
Another great Miracle from the fall of 1978. I wish they played it like this in the 90's.
3
Good Lovin'
Hot version. "It doesn't matter how many camels u have...got to have lovin" Epic LMFAO. Very under-rated show.

Ollin Arageed
I love this one going into Fire. Really good show this night in Egypt!

Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
C'mon, no love for Egypt? Stony '78 groove with the Olin lead in. Always takes me there
11
Deal
Egypt show - best 70s version. Closing 2 minutes of "Don't you let that Deal go down" coda is a raucous affair.
7
New Minglewood Blues
Keith's piano work is amazing in this one. Whole band is on fire. Egypt 1978
5
Its All Over Now
Egypt 1978, awesome
1
Drums
Even wth B.K. having a broken hand I have always enjoyed the drums on this evening. A truly mesmerizing performance
3
Around and Around
From the magical eclipse night in Gizah a truly magical journey.

Stagger Lee
Better than the more heard version the night before...swag, thunder...you got it

El Paso
I know they should have played Dark Star in Egypt. But this is a fantastic EP. Dynamic, dramatic, Jerry on fire.
