Short, sweet, but THUMPING

Show starts out a bit rough - tech issues, energy, song selection. Boys seem to come alive here, with some nice Jerry leads and Keith fills

Seattle Center Coliseum
Perfect tone, swells, and peaks. This soars
Feel Like A Stranger

INCREDIBLY slinky. Excellent action Brent-side on this.
Big Railroad Blues

Brent and Jerry trade smoking solos, then mesh at the final end jam. Choice

RIP Brent. His final lyrics are tear jerking in context

Brent playing like he’s possessed. His link up with Jerry is positively electric. Crusher of a version

Surprising this one doesn't get more dap, because it is a creamy ride through the cosmos. Far more mellow than some of the angular versions from tour, this one is a relaxing sonic cushion to float through deep space. Love it

Back again on this one. Keith absolutely CHEWING up the scenery. So chunky on the boards. Choice doesn't begin to describe
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
April 25, 1977
Often a plug and play, obligatory closer, but this one is different. Band attacks with insane fervor and energy. Colossal high energy closer to an incredible show.
