Red Rocks Amphitheatre

SCREAMING start to the show. Boys attack like rabid dogs. Great Brent solo in here. Welcome to Red Rocks!

This one opens up nicely, and continually unfolds, into a seamless segue into PITB reprise

They are playing in Birmingham, the song mentions Birmingham, mass crowd hysteria ensues. Hot version though, so justifiable

Fox Theatre

Really melodic jam, which builds incrementally in velocity and intensity - then, screaming sunshine daydream

Uptown Theater

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

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

Super flowing, mellow transition. Dig it on a breezy spring day. Great feel

Fully agree. The boys hammered NFA's in '71 and this one is no different. Nice Keith/Jerry interplay before the transition!

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
