Rosalie McFall
A true Grateful Dead artifact. This audience recording is second-to-none for the early years, and the atmosphere it creates is divine.
5
Truckin'
Unbelievable jam...
6
I Know You Rider
Moody, pensive, and beautifully acoustic. Like no other. Unbelievably beautiful.
13
El Paso
The boys were in a mellow mood tonight, and this one is the sweet and tearful-cowboy ballad it was written to be.
19
Dark Star
Takes off on you for a deep and weird ride, then goes into a brilliant "The Main Ten" which just kills me its so good.
15
Dancin' in the Streets
Slow, relentless jam--unique and very cool version from an unheralded show.
4
Uncle John's Band
Acoustic set closer, try not to clap along with the audience at the end. The dog will look at you funny.
6
Dire Wolf
Opener to one of the greatest acoustic sets ever
6
Around and Around
First time played, and although a little rough they rock it out and nail it.
5
Wake Up Little Susie
Final time played, and its a grand finale.
3
Not Fade Away
NFA < GDTRFB < NFA and its epic
5
Mystery Train
The only known version the boys played and they nail it. Check the super smooth transition into the only known 'My Babe'. Only circulates in AUD.

Ripple
Great year for this song, no doubt, emotive, and serene. A quick ride in time, Capitol Theater 1970.

Operator
Final time played, Pig is in fine form, acoustic set here is beautiful, entire show for that matter is transcendent stuff.

Dark Hollow
Get this AUD concert right now, that's all I'll say

Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Unique jam going into the song and we get a mountan jam tease into the NFA reprise. Overall a killer version.

My Baby
fantastic early dead rare wonderful nugget

Good Lovin'
Final jam in an enormous show. Just killer. Follows the one NRPS set you need to hear. Whatta world.

Casey Jones
Upbeat and well-played version. Not a mind-blower, but builds up to a pretty sweet peak into a nice Truckin'
