Hot outro resolves into a brief contemplative space before yielding to Drums.
Queen Jane Approximately
March 28, 1990
Sparkling, energetic version. The first set of the Nassau run is a great one!
Its All Over Now
Oct. 20, 1978
Grooves smartly with excellent contributions from each member. The whole first set is hot and worth a listen.

Jerry and Donna sound great in this uptempo version. Jerry's solo smokes too, of course.

Sweet bluesy outro jam. Spring ’78 was very good to poor Peter.

Let It Grow
Oct. 2, 1977
Very exploratory in parts! I can’t think of many late-’70s versions that are this adventurous.
Nov. 4, 1979
Even by the standards of ’79, this is a *great* Estimated. Enjoy.

Sugar Mag seemingly was a good fit for the band’s strengths in ’87. It really shines in crisp renditions like this one.
Ramble On Rose
April 29, 1984
This might be the highlight of the first set, but it's a really well-played set all around. Try the chasingwilma recording for set I (there's a SBD for set II).
Sept. 11, 1974
The technical glitch I can overlook, but Bobby’s noticeably out of tune in stretches of the jam. I can’t upvote, but I can recommend you hear this at least once to appreciate the good aspects, which are significant.
