38New Speedway Boogie
Relaxed funky opium den vibe
18Deep Elem Blues
36Friend of the Devil
Grisman's mandolin makes it!
A bit raw on the voca
A bit raw on the vocals, but there's some hair-raising musicianship going on here...Very joyously played. Jer goes off for a bit
16Not Fade Away
1970-71 is the prime time for NFAs.
13Big Railroad Blues
Acoustic Grateness (And Dawgness, With David Grisman!)
ACOUSTIC Truckin', yes please!
25To Lay Me Down
A great early acoustic version.
Nice early acoustic version
Super sweet and mellow version from a great acoustic set.
Whoa. Can't believe this isn't listed...possibly the most perfect acoustic version with David Nelson on Mandolin.
5Big Boy Pete
My favorite, though I don't know many versions of this song!
a very good acoustic version
Great Caution, but absofreakinglutely outrageous feedback into the deep deep space and back. Face stolen, body floating -> Bid You Goodnight. Damn.
This entire set is pristine Acoustic Dead from 70...Dark Hollow has Grisman sitting in with them adding some gorgeous Mando to the mix. Must hear.
12Uncle John's Band
one of the best acoustic UJBs ever. vocals could never get better than right here. the whole acoustic set is incred, dawg grisman adds his genius
6Sitting on Top of the World
Really great show with a few lesser played tunes.
10Attics of My Life
A great electric version thrown into a excellent show
5And We Bid You Goodnight
Absolutely beautiful version.
2Me and My Uncle
Bob stomps on Jerry's jam.
Full and sweeping and receptive. A whole story...may be the most powerful
