Me and My Uncle
Concise excellence
13
He's Gone
Perfect, self-contained, blues-infused, stellar vocals, 14+ minutes of bliss. Extra fun: Check out the "Birdsong" riff about 10 secs. into the intro
13
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
This is a soulful, passionate version with fantastic Jerry vocals, PHIL, and some tight soloes & jams.
7
Playin' In The Band
Sweet version with long Jer and Bobby double solo. Hits all the '73 highs: tight, long jam, with lots of Jerry's fast-mellow and space bugs.
4
Tomorrow Is Forever
AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5
The Other One
Powerful and dissonant with some crazy squeals coming from Jerry's guitar. This is a crazy highly improvisational the other one, Fantastic, Real HOT!
4
Deal
Jerry is on fire..so is everyone else
3
Cold Rain and Snow
Always loved this one early in the first set, 'cause it meant the boys meant business. This one has a loose, comfortable sound, but with high energy.
6
Bird Song
Crisp, articulate, deliberate. This is as strong a statement about what this song could be in '72 as I know. Airplay levels of concision.
5
Around and Around
Usually a toss-off for me, and maybe it's Chuck Berry's passing that makes me think of it, but this version kicks serious ass. Deliberate and strong.
2
Johnny B. Goode
R.I.P. Chuck Berry
3
You Win Again
Perfect execution on this sweetheart of a tune.
3
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Jerry channels George Harrison like nobody's business. The solo at 2:45 gently weeps, guys. Check it out.
3
Big River
Pretty hot
1
Sugaree
Sweet
4
Truckin'
Nice version that melts into a beautiful jam
3
Cumberland Blues
Typical Cumby; on fire
1
Greatest Story Ever Told
Just two days before one of the consensus favorites, this version is BLAZING.
