Help us Charlie Miller, you're our only hope! Seriously though, this is a blisteringly hot version. Don't miss it.

Very cool studio rehearsals with new grooves and wildly flanged sound. Fall '76 versions are some of the best, and here they are still in the egg.

Jerry tears this one apart with a shredding solo. The link here is bass-heavy SBD with some decay, but just brilliant playing by all.

Notable for a 6-min opening jam that comes out of Wharf Rat, very cool, mislabeled "Drums". The GDTRFB smokes too.

What a treat. Why is this show undervalued? C'mon folks, don't let a good AUD scare you. This is a beaut, with the crowd part of the party.

Bobby's got a snarl that just exudes violence. I love this version and the surf-punk cowboy sound that was still part of the Danger Dead sound.

Hot Goddamn, that just rips. A crescendo of energy and power, it builds up to a beautiful peak.

This whole run is beyond immortal and every CRS just kicks. This one is brilliant.

Hey there's a bit of Terrapin in here. Check out Jerry's melodic lines starting just around 06:50. Am I crazy or is there a little theme that suggests they were already working it out, and he slipped in in? So cool.
