Slow and smooth, in a St Stephen sandwich. Very chill and perfectly played

Sugar Magnolia
Mammoth 10 minute version, great jam in the middle, worth a listen. Brilliant way to end the perfect second set

Candyman
HOW has this AMAZING Candyman slipped through the cracks on Heady V for this long? People! It's Great!

Cassidy
Note for note perfection. Cassidy was a blazing glory during this whole Summer tour.
2
New Minglewood Blues
Maybe not everyone's favorite song (or anyone's), but this is the ballsiest most swaggering one since they busted it out. Great mix helps, too.
5
Might As Well
Barnburning storm burster so strong it blows out speakers around 03:30 in. Kicks off the party with Jerry in full form, vox and guitar.
2
Samson and Delilah
Full of strut. The band is in perfect form, everyone is on. Precise, strong, and full of swagger.

Row Jimmy
a personal favorite.
