China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Jerry stumbles a bit during the transition, but a powerful early version.
5
Candyman
Premiere version from the middle/acoustic set. Audible buzz on the SBD, but worth the historic interest and for Jerry's wordless penultimate verse.
3
Not Fade Away
Short, hot, right into a killer "Lovelight"

Turn On Your Love Light
NFA > Lovelight. Pigpen and Bobby trade ideas towards the end.
4
Katie Mae
What a treat.
5
Cosmic Charlie
Comes out of a powerful early "TOO."
5
Dancin' in the Streets
Churning and meandering, flowing tightening up and raveling back
7
Cryptical Envelopment
Nice patient build-up prior to classic Cryptical explosion!

Wake Up Little Susie
This tune is so sweet

Black Peter
Laid back acoustic

Uncle John's Band
Another great acoustic version
