Dark Star
This one goes errrywhere. Billy and Keith drive the middle part of the jam. Even significant Slipknot! jamming
5
Weather Report Suite
Jerry Is amazing on this. It goes into Around and Around (unfortunately) and per usual Donna is a little overbearing
7
Row Jimmy
Powerful!
4
Jack Straw
Great fast leads from Jerry
5
Black Throated Wind
Damned strong version building up nicely to the towering triumph, "you've done better by me than I've done by you". Strong stuff.
4
Brown Eyed Women
Energetic and tight with great harmonies and strong soloing.
2
Scarlet Begonias
Epic slow-burning funk. Gets better as it goes, and as Garica gets louder in the mix...one of my favorite stand alones!
6
Loose Lucy
Phil funks this one up tough.
5
Loser
Greatness in this one: Powerful ensemble vocals.
4
Let It Grow
Tight and hot. Something in the vocals at this show went just perfect too, adding to the intensity.
3
Around and Around
High energy end to 1st set of a show which starts slow then just gets better and better
3
Sugaree
Short but sweet, played well even if it doesn't go outside the box. Underrated show...
2
El Paso
The cowboy song portion of an underrated show.
2
Ship of Fools
Emotive, floating and airy ....Phil and Keith accents all over the place.
2
Uncle John's Band
Nice and jammed out into US Blues

U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Good '74 version thats bouncy and energetic, with good vocals
