The second live version has a cool slightly different feel.

Greatest Story Ever Told
Electrifying and high-power jams, with some of the weirdest sounds Donna ever made. Great fun and a wild ride.

Sugaree
Hits that sweet spot between a shuffle and a ballad. Slight tinniness to Jer's Mike on my copy gives a nice swirling trippiness to it.

Promised Land
Cookin' with some insane keith solos

Truckin'
Absolute fire blues here. This is crushed, awesome version from an awesome show

Deal

Amazing recording and Bobby's energy and the band is completely engaged and locked in. Opener for the show. Second show of '74. Worthy listen!! :)
