13
Cassidy
Intensely jammed with focus to spare...Bob, Brent, Jerry, Phil, Bill, and Mick rock the house
2
Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Beautifully jammed Lost Sailor climax...Dig the Cassidy too!
3
Deal
One of my favorite Deals. Not quite as tight as some of the 89-90s ones, but still very good IMO
2
Black Peter
Typically it's that late 89-90 jerry voice that really gives us empathy for the protagonist, but this 1980 version takes the cake. Very bluesy
7
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Nice spacey transition jam leads to an incendiary fire with Jerry playing hot run after hot run a true Fantastic FIRE AMAZINGLY HOT!
6
Playin' In The Band
This Playing in the Band has a definite Spanish Jam tinge to it, this is a total noodle fest.
1
Drums
Nice segue from Playin, crowd gets really into it
