6
Truckin'
Enormous peak, really funky Nobody's jam
7
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Another dynamite, joyous transition into rider. Feelin' Groovy jam is one of the best I've ever heard!!
9
Greatest Story Ever Told
Blazing, Jerry and Keith gettin' DOWN
8
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Another fantastic run of Playing->Half-Step->Big River->Playing.
10
Playin' In The Band
Trippy explorations at lightning speed with cool MHUT>Big River sandwich.
3
Bertha
Great solos, tight ensemble playing kicking of the 2nd set from a great show. Energetic and blazing.
3
They Love Each Other
Tight and right. The band is charged up and having fun together. Great energy.
4
Tennessee Jed
Hot building and building jam. One of those shows where just every song rocks. Nothing wrong here...
4
Beat it on Down The Line
Keith and Jerry's solos nail it.
5
Nobody's Fault But Mine
Killer Nobody's jam in which Jerry apparently breaks a string, but Keith steps up very nicely. Some subtle Other One teases towards the end of one.
2
Loose Lucy
A fun version.
4
He's Gone
Beautiful 73 version, outro jam is especially juicy. Leads into a Truckin’ that is equally underrated.
4
Wharf Rat
Worth switching to the AUD to hear the explosive ending after the SBD cuts out. Just awe-inspiring.
3
Me and Bobby McGee
What is this, chopped liver? Just listen to the solo
1
Loser
The mix isn't the best, but the performance is stellar. Definitely worth checking out.
2
Black Throated Wind
If the soundboard were cleaner, this would be a classic. The climax is absolutely stunning and seems to never end.
