So clean, perfectly executed - acoustic butter

Hampton Coliseum

Not usually my song, but this one cranks into hyper speed, with Brent preaching on the organ and Jerry nailing the licks

Truckin'

Hampton Coliseum

Not the longest version, but hot with some interesting diversions into different territory than a normal Truckin'. Segues effortlessly into Stella

Fiery version - Jerry is ON. Mothership on hype. Worthy of a focused spin

Powerful ~16 min version with strong Chill Lesh prominence

^what the clash said. This version is made by the 2-3 min of seeming drums/space the precedes it. That little jam segment is spacey gold and transitioning into Saint is pretty shocking.

Cracking solid from everyone, with Hornsby laying some thickness

Jerry’s ethereal, tinkling tone on this solo is definitive catharsis.

First off, my god, people are still commenting daily on Veneta, Englishtown, and May ‘77 like we didn’t get a prized new professional release just days ago. This show is lauded, for innumerable reasons, not least of which is this bonkers UJB with not just a fully realized DS Jam, but not one, but two TOO tease. Leads into a mouth of hell sounding drums sequence, then a Space, which of the era, sounds like the best musicians on the planet playing fart sounds on their instruments. Otherwise (than Space), this show and version are the best of the late era, and so happy they are on polished release. The whole box is so worthwhile and glad this show got the nod for vinyl release. Spread into IT

To echo sentiments above, this is everything you want in a late-peak ear dew. The emotiveness, the cathartic swell and fury, this one is fantastic
