It Must Have Been The Roses

Black Peter
The final vocals, “Run and See” give me goose bumps and the Garcia solo is also very good. I had this version from many years and lost it and always

Sugar Magnolia
Jerry's solo to close this one out is hard-driving and aggressive.

The Other One
Sweet contours!!! DP 34

New Minglewood Blues
Bobby belts the lyrics like his life depends on it. A ferocious and insane Minglewood all around

Looks Like Rain
Another pretty version with Bob/Donna from 1977.

Estimated Prophet
This one has a mid jam that is longer than most from 1977. Great version. Keith's sound is unique on this one, too.

He's Gone
A beut out of a great Estimated!

Take A Step Back
This one should be here as it segues out of a Phil solo and then into an Epic Eyes!
1
Drums
Sweet Drums with Phil leads into a nice the other one

Truckin'
Full of energy and roaring throughout the whole jam including multiple peaking buildups.
