So sweet and sad, with a giant of a solo and crisp harmonising.

Pigpen’s vox is just amazing here (as always). Great show.

Sweet country Dead. Great mix if you want to feel Phil's thunder.

Jerry leans into it with a jaw-tighteningly crisp and high-voltage tone for a killer solo, though the group is a bit loose. Pigpen sounds amazing.

Absolute goodness. These shows are all so beautiful, the playing is all virtuoso, and the feeling is so positive. Brent here is especially perfect.

Really special Slipknot > Drums here. On its own the Slip is amazing, but I swear that half the band is trying to go into Dancin' in the Streets, making for a really beautiful transition back out of the Drum section. It's definitely there in the alchemical mix, but 'twas not to be.

Jerry sounds positively joyous. This song always brought on the good times, but this one is really worth something extra.

Thank you Charlie Miller! Could you be a lurker on this site??? Yes or no, your work has given me/us 1000s of hours of pleasure. This cleanup should put this Eyes way up higher on the list, and the whole show too.

The new mixes by Charlie Miller make this previously underrated show a great pleasure. This NFBM jam simmers and bubbles, crackling with energy. So nice to revisit this show with a new sound.

You're a bunch of loons. This one sucks. Real heads know that the best ever was at the free show at Sprekels Bandshell in Golden Gate Park back in '67. I know because I had it on a Maxell 46min cassette that I traded away for a ride up to Buffalo back in '74.
