Americana at it's best at the base of the Sphinx
5Eyes Of The World
Almost criminal this isn't here yet. Grab the Egypt '78 CD & hear one of the loveliest "Eyes" ever. Jazzy, intricate, sweet, & inspired!
Kesey video after 12 min. of Ollin Arrageed, worth every second: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMAKJfuP4II
Beautiful version. Jerry flubs a verse, but it don't matter.
Rockin version. Not much is posted from this run in Egypt. Everything is pretty inspired at these shows.
Jack Straw from Egypt
Length mid verse estimated Jam. Very kind version. These shows deserve more hype.
Flows into Promised land all of these performances at the Sphynx of this Egyptian song are important and powerful this one leads into Promised Land
5Ship of Fools
Brilliant delicate opening than Phil comes in and adds some real meat, Nice egypt swing to the proceedings, underrated honestly.
2I Need A Miracle
Not the barn burner from the next night a more laid back cool cat mellow groove with phil just getting funky and jerry bending notes over smooth Bobby
This is mostly terrific Phil just carpet bombs the shit out of the whole song and jerry nails it both playing and signing, backing vocals a little f'd
Net with tons of Phil Bass, If this Miller board were what was cirxulating back in the day the egypt run would be seen in a much more favorable light
1Friend of the Devil
EgYpT Great Pyramid
Between Eyes and Terrapin is this Fantastic Drums in Egypt
