Sounds UJB/Feelin Groovish at the tail end. Brings to mind the DS a few nights later which in my opinion ranks as the all time greatest. I am sure Crow knows 2/13/70 but anyone else who has not had the pleasure of hearing it -stop, drop and listen.

Massive Phil crushing boulders while this version lurches all over the place Jer with a strong effort after over a year for the whip out and he muscles it out for the ending....hmmm

Yup Grendel - I agree this one is more developed and overall better - while back at the Berkeley show they definitely slam into the Rio chorus jarringly I still like Jer's lines on the ride out there with his holding notes over Keith's play. Wow after listening to this one a 3rd time this outro is just sooo friggin' smooth and pretty -- As I mentioned, I have come to prefer these '72's generally vs the fanning style of the later years. As stated above, this one's hidden gem to my ears as well.
