Great song. It's a shame that it was only performed a couple of times.

Brown Eyed Women
Early, raw fast version. It's the '71 line-up, stripped down and loud. Only time they played it without Keith, too!
7
Loser
incredible bluesy rhythm that bob puts on it, unique to this show only. DP 35 version
5
Good Lovin'
Rarely pull DP 35 off the shelf, decided to go straight to Disc 4, the 8-6-71 part and figured why not just give the 8-24 Good Lovin' a LOUD listen
7
Me and Bobby McGee
Nailed it. How has this not been given a nod? On DP35.

Brokedown Palace
Great 71 Brokedown

The Other One
DP35 The Other One>Me & My Uncle>The Other One. Nice short other one that goes nicely into MAMU

Deal
Nice rockin version, Jerry really gets into it at the end

Big Boss Man
Stripped down bluesy 71 with Pig? Yup.

St. Stephen
Crowd is all over this one

Not Fade Away
71 is a great time for NFA, and Phil is all over this.
2
Hurts Me Too
An uncommonly spirited organ solo from Pigpen augmented by searing leads from Jerry make this one stand out.
