Tennessee Jed
Feb. 26, 1977
Swing Auditorium

Arriving t'ween Samson & tMNS, this justifiably famous Jed (much discussed b.i.t.tape days) can be enjoyed repeatedly. Squeeze out those squeakers Jer

Samson and Delilah
Feb. 26, 1977
Swing Auditorium

Pacing and perfected-dance-shuffling the rhythm section w/Bobby fills and Jer's all-over-the-fretboard attack make this a definitive A+ version.

The Wheel

Swing Auditorium

If there's another Wheel like this one, I haven't heard it. Unique loaded w/dynamics and little Bill/Mickey shuffles. Goes back>PitB...in the 1st set!

Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Sept. 5, 1985
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

1st solo, Jer w/beautiful stanza, suddenly drops 4steps then inserts halfs, (learned this lead, worked on it + months). Gets even better; way melodic.

One More Saturday Night

Ohio Theatre

Paced, it lulls you into thinking it's not gonna explode. When it does, sounds like it can't wait 4 the future. Concise, Jer teases rite > St Stephen.

Plus this is a good performance from Donna and Keith. Check out the march cadence from Bill and Mickey at the finish line.

This Halloweener is so paced, it lulls you into thinking it's not gonna explode. When it does, this '71-type-version sounds like it can't wait for the future! Concise, it winds down as Jer teases it right into St Stephen.
