Loser
I'm probably in the minority but I much prefer the electric stuff from this show. This has got such a lazy, loping groove with everyone feeling it.

Althea
Damn!
2
Ship of Fools
Beautiful touch on the solo, notes that you can hear disappearing
2
Feel Like A Stranger
Interesting primitive Stranger with an unorthodox jam towards the end. Great interplay between Jerry and Brent.

Big River
Right here til I die. Brent and Jerry are staring straight at the sun on this one.

Black Peter
Stunning organ parts that take the song to a different level. Feels like I'm going down a lazy river without a care in the world.
