Jerry's guitar tone and fluttering ramp up solo is spine tingles. Highly recommend!

Capitol Theater

Opens the show with serious energy. Perfect vocals and great balance of tightness, but bouncy playing. This whole first set is super crisp

Rarely post on a MAMU, but this one really pops! Super nimble guitar work. Excelent

An inspired drums segment from the Devils and a serviceable space segment. Worth the spin
Crazy Fingers

Giants Stadium

Perfect full band gelling in a dramatic end jam portion, leading effortlessly into China > Rider

Suuuuper clean version. Bouncy, melodic

Gorgeous, floating along like a leaf on the wind

Family Dog at the Great Highway

I've been listening to this one a ton since the recent Dave's release. Such a beautiful, multi-thematic, exploratory version. And YES, the feeling > tighten jam is pure dead wizardry

Fillmore West

^Totally agree with Top Binus above. Such a shame this track was confined to '69. I'm also consistently amazed at how much they pack into ~6 min. This one has a fantastic little groove at the end

Fillmore West

Fierce, cranking shred in the middle of this one. Top tier
