18Me and Bobby McGee
must eat the whole "Other One" sandwich to fully enjoy this beauty
Kickoff to an epic show. Pig's organ, Billy's drumming, Kieth are all high points, not to mention the usual fine work from "the other ones"
106China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Absolutely flawless. Such a wonderful transition. Never-ending peaks.
Kieth is doing some wonderfully inventive stuff here. It's Europe '72 so you know it's good
Just got the EU '72 box set and threw this one on. Had to hear without the studio effects. Still smokes and still is oh so good!
6Me and My Uncle
Jerry tears it a new one
Crisp'r than a muthafucka, this version is tight!
48The Other One
The Other One is out of the cosmos
22Greatest Story Ever Told
Europe '72 Vol. 2 version. jerry really goes off!
7Beat it on Down The Line
Tight, inspired, rockin'. Best of the Euro '72 run. Give it some love, folks!
9Playin' In The Band
Massive and dark with fantastic interplay between everybody on stage. Doesn't quite melt down, but dances next to chaos just perfectly.
11Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Show is all highlights, and NFA-GDRFB-NFA caps it in style. Listen to the whole set for full effect and feel the love.
Phil and Pigpen interplay like few others I know. Brilliant and clear, with a thumping good vibe.
8Sing Me Back Home
Elegance defined. Some of the sweetest vocal harmonies of the era. Nailed it.
The finale of a great Truckin >Other One triptych. Don't skip the Paris shows.
10Black Throated Wind
Perfect in Paris
9Ramble On Rose
Another great '72 version
10Not Fade Away
Flawless trance-inducing NFA with a perfect transition into GDTRFB. Note for note perfect show.
Classic E72 version at this epic show!
