6Friend of the Devil
Acoustic and fster pace just what this song needs in my opinion. one of the few songs i prefer acoustic
Aight, we're going to just big up this whole show. This is delicious eat-me goo. Damn. May '70 is prime love. Dig the great recording too.
2Don't Ease Me In
Sweet and solid show opener. A pure expression of the peak '70 year sound. Strap in and enjoy the show....
Almost a prayer. Stripped down, pure, harmonized and beautiful. Fans of the acoustic Candyman shouldn't pass this one by.
Tremendous They just kill this version, Bobby's assists on vocals are tremendous and Jerry is almost growling at points, Hot version
3China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Crystal clear version, not sure why it's been overlooked. Beautiful vocals, great recording, indicative of the transition sound of the era.
The vocals throughout this show are sublime. This is the era of three-part harmony. They were just so fresh, and every moment is a treat. Enjoy.
5Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Tight version, excellent Pig harp solo, then Jerry on bottle neck? Is that a slide? It's freakin' awesome, and the strong pulse makes it excellent.

This shw in its entirety is an ass kicker true magic on this night. FANFREAKINGTASTIC
1Me and My Uncle
