Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
The very definition of "underrated." Almost lost to time& yet it kills. No flubbed verses, great steady reggae jams;perfect transition. Please try it.
19
Let It Grow
A stupedous version; they ride what I call the "80's LIG theme" (that 3 note figure Jerry repeats a lot) to very climatic effect!
6
Tennessee Jed
Bit slower than the ones I usually groove on, but Jerry's bounce started off a very fine day for me.
5
C. C. Rider
This is when I thought the show locked in.
9
Dupree's Diamond Blues
The quirk of this is when I felt the show take on its own character.
6
New Minglewood Blues
My favorite shows always tend to start with this. Weird.
8
Terrapin Station
Infused with the same reggae/calypso quirkiness from the stellar "S>F" and before.
12
Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Key element of the weirdness of this show for me.
4
Truckin'
Kicks back into the cowboy vibe from earlier in the show, leads into a stellar "Stella."
7
Stella Blue
Highlight from the end of the show.
3
Me and My Uncle
Solid vocals from Bob, nice guitar work from Jerry, but...
6
Althea
Have loved this version for years. Each post verse solo is tasty and the outro rocks. Phis also is heavy on the low B at the end.
2
Looks Like Rain
Cool version/cool Show
10
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Always such a gem, wonderful encore on this evening.
10
Big River
This is a BIG OL RIVER! This whole show is so special, and totally 'under the radar'...Check it out, and hold on tight!!!
7
They Love Each Other
Surprised this isn't up; this whole show is quite hot and has a very unique, calypso sort of vibe. This TLEO is a great example of that. Check it out.
