63Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Great jamming from the Saratoga forest
Often cited as one of the best, if you like POWER with your DEW, look no furthur
17Playin' In The Band
comes rising like a Phoenix out of an Atomic Dew. Builds a nice groove and Brent is playing some very new wave sounding tones. Bobby sings his heart
excellent version from a truly killer show.
Great Jerry/Brent interplay. This whole damn show smokes if you can get past the lack of a SBD. The Huston/Miller remaster ain't too shabby.
Magic in Saratoga! You can tell when Jerry chips in on the refrain, he's having a good old time.
One of my favorite versions. When they open with a Bertha like this, you know you're in for a hell of a ride.
Roarin Version, First show at SPAC!
Great guitar work highlights this version, Jerry is dialed in from the get-go. Great show.
1Touch of Grey
High energy early version to close out a great set 2. Everyone is on it here.
1Hell in a Bucket
High energy early bucket
