Alabama Getaway
Sept. 6, 1983
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

SCREAMING start to the show. Boys attack like rabid dogs. Great Brent solo in here. Welcome to Red Rocks!
Uncle John's Band
Sept. 6, 1983
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

This one opens up nicely, and continually unfolds, into a seamless segue into PITB reprise
Promised Land
Dec. 15, 1978
Boutwell Auditorium

They are playing in Birmingham, the song mentions Birmingham, mass crowd hysteria ensues. Hot version though, so justifiable
Sugar Magnolia
April 11, 1978
Fox Theatre

Really melodic jam, which builds incrementally in velocity and intensity - then, screaming sunshine daydream
May 16, 1978
Uptown Theater

Very heady jam segment in this one. Show is a sleeper from May


Brown Eyed Women
May 11, 1972
Rotterdam Civic Hall

Minor lyrical flubs could not be of lesser relevance for my enjoyment. This one is a solid rendition. Some nice emotive vocal chaw from Jerry in the final verse/chorus
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
May 11, 1972
Rotterdam Civic Hall

Super flowing, mellow transition. Dig it on a breezy spring day. Great feel
Run Run Rudolph
Dec. 14, 1971
Hill Auditorium

Carrion's description - NAILED it
Not Fade Away
Nov. 17, 1971
Albuquerque Civic Auditorium

Fully agree. The boys hammered NFA's in '71 and this one is no different. Nice Keith/Jerry interplay before the transition!
The Other One
Nov. 17, 1971
Albuquerque Civic Auditorium

Oooooh, I liked this one a lot. Travels all over the place. The opening bread of the TOO sandy is nice and bluesy, popping MAMU meat, and a delicate TOO landing bread = tasty sandy. Solid Wharf to follow
