The Music Never Stopped
Spacey and cool.

Me and My Uncle
Stayin' Alive tease to open and significant teases by Keith throughout. Most interesting version by far - (teases continue into a romping Big River)
20
Big River
Stayin' Alive teases carried over from Me and My Uncle. Ballsy version
6
Not Fade Away
Excellent 2nd set. Terrapin>Drums>Space>NFA>Black Peter>Around and Around!!!

Black Peter
Outstanding NFA>Black Peter. One of the cooler late 70's versions. Jerry voice is so tender!

Brown Eyed Women
here's the right one, a solid version
20
Ramble On Rose
A cool version from a great show.

Promised Land
A decent Promised Land till the end, when the band just hits another gear completely, kicking off a superb show.
11
Passenger
Jerry-licoius.
12
Friend of the Devil
Beautiful and Creative Jerry/Bob Solos!
8
Good Lovin'
Full of Energy, Jerry is ripping!

Close Encounters Jam
"space" after drums before not fade away. Maybe just jerry messin around with the mu-tron but sounds like encounters to me.
8
Terrapin Station
Dynamic and skillfully played version, featured on Dave's Picks 7
3
Fire On The Mountain
Jerry's Mutron magic and Bobby's noodling slide make this version unique. So much energy here.

Drums -> Space
I don't usually think about a "heady" version here but Damn!! this some trippy stuff leading into a great NFA
