Dark Star
A beautiful MLB jam followed by some of the freakest DS space you'll ever hear. Careful around this one...
7
Playin' In The Band
Tight, jazzy and a little freaky too. An underappreciated highlight of a great show.
6
Eyes Of The World
Spicy stuff. All of the October '73 Eyes are just dynamite.
4
Weather Report Suite
An AMAZINGLY HOT, A++ version, with a neat repirse of the prelude at the end. This is seriously one of my VERY favorites, folks!!!!!
7
Stella Blue
Sweet and subtle: A beautiful come down after the muscular peak Eyes - but the set isn't done and they ramp it up again for more. A gem of a show.
3
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Exhuberent and triumphant. Closes out one hellofa 2nd set and kicks like a rocket.
6
Let It Grow
Been listening to this every chance I can all week. The band's so tight, Bobby's singing passionate and precise, Jer's musicality soaring. Amazing.

Bertha
Jerry plays the solo with conviction

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Great stuff here. From a monster show, this is a really strong china < rider. One of the best of the era imho

Tennessee Jed
Hopping here! Not always a vehicle for jamming and its kind of a mundane tune, but the jamming near the end of this one fucking rocks my balls.
