19
To Lay Me Down
Crushingly soulful take here. It's all in the vocals...Jerry and Brent.
5
The Music Never Stopped
Bob sings lightning line and it strikes - ho-hum just another show they hit the pocket here. Source: CM with corrected date.
13
Hell in a Bucket
Nice weaving Phil JG torches the jam and we get a nice lift off.
11
Cold Rain and Snow
Lively interplay with Brent touches this one delivers.
9
Wharf Rat
Adding this based purely on the listening party sample for the forthcoming box set.
14
Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again
The golden year for Memphis Blues. Bruce is given the main solo spot.
5
He's Gone
Intersesting as the second set opener.
10
The Other One
Top notch 10 minute 89 version
5
Terrapin Station
Spot on version. Clean and bright.
8
Let It Grow
Monster LIG
9
Looks Like Rain
very well performed. Re-master on the RFK boxset is sublime. Someone is triggering dramatic thunderstorm sound effects around the 7:00 mark.
7
Little Red Rooster
Real nasty LRR
4
Tennessee Jed
Not normally a big fan of this song, but Bruce Hornsby on accordion adds a lot of welcome texture to the mix
2
Good Lovin'
Ok maybe I’m having a major brain fart but I can’t remember Brent ever doing a full blown verse
