Big River
Country Rock. Played with excitement and flair.
4
Me and Bobby McGee
sweet as ever, get on it
8
Sing Me Back Home
Gorgeous the whole sequence of He's Gone->Truckin->O1->SMBH is just breathtakingly powerful only the Dead could pull this much power and emotion off.
6
Truckin'
Just when it seems like they've decided on O1 as the jam vehicle of choice, they suddenly switch to a great Truckin'.
5
The Other One
Nice jazziness coming out of Truckin'. Phil hints at a few solo themes he would develop later on, and Jerry shreds before the verse reprise.
1
Sugaree
So smooth, so warm. 2nd song in the show, and they sound like its late 2nd set. Gem of a show, gem of a song.
4
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
This CC is so sweet and much longer than others of the era before signaling the >IKYR, with lots of room to stretch out and find the sound.
4
He's Gone
A long, smooth outro allows for a little musical discussion whether it's going to TOO or Truckin'. Great stuff that must have stolen many faces.
2
Uncle John's Band
Hard rockin' version coming after a deliriously epic 2nd set suite. Crunchy and powerful.
3
Greatest Story Ever Told
they extend the jam on this one and bring you to the swamp its a killer
2
Box of Rain
Sweet harmonies with an electric edge
2
Bertha
Packs that '72 Punch
1
Promised Land
Bursts forth -- great way to start the show/ your day
1
Me and My Uncle
Taught me all I know
1
Black Throated Wind
Keeps on pouring in
