Dicks Picks 12 version, standalone Eyes, Jerry and Phil's interplay is some of the best ever!!! Compact, concise, beefy, and melodic.
Dec. 2, 1973

Briliant version outta He's Gone, forsakes the all out bluesy, rockin' type of Truckin' for a snaky, bluesy, up-to-no-good sound.

Great UJB jam in this one...GD Movie Soundtrack version.
