C. C. Rider
Notable for double-time in the back half of the tune...kinda funny
8
Cumberland Blues
Late 81 Early 82 was undoubtedly a hot time for the band, and it's nice that they brought this tune back with a different take
13
Passenger
Fasten your seatbelt!!
31
The Wheel
Epic. Crazy extended intro.
4
Playin' In The Band
My favorite WHEEL is some of the meat in this playing sandwich. It's great.
16
Let It Grow
Garcias solo has that on-the-edge-of-out-of-cntrol feel
11
Bird Song
So good. 81 was a peak year for this song...
8
Big Railroad Blues
This thing just punched me in the face! Whoa.. beware of Brent's organ melting your ears
4
Sugar Magnolia
Bobby starts to sing but Jerry keeps playing lead and makes him wait another measure.
1
Ramble On Rose
Crisp Vocals. Great show. Worth a listen.
2
Space
Hints of Jaws, a most dreamy underwater passage and then look for two Tiger-like climaxes just prior to slipping into the greatest Wheel to ever rol

Friend of the Devil
Outstanding version with beautiful keyboard work from Brent. Can't believe this one hadn't been posted yet.
