6
He's Gone
Mournful, so soulful, sad and joyful at once. Truckin-TOO-Eyes-C.Doll follows
4
Truckin'
Perfect...out of the best He's Gone these ears have heard
6
The Other One
Super-spacey, supersonic, and totally worth the weirdness to get to the Eyes segue...goose bump-inducing
7
Eyes Of The World
Yowza...out of DEEP scary space in TOO, this provides a joyful lifting reminder of how great we have it here on Earth
5
Here Comes Sunshine
Never a bad '73 version: Listen through the hiss (headphones, folks) for a diamond in the rough. Apparently a rainbow emerged during it, really.

Playin' In The Band
28 minutes of groove. Playin' at its finest - but the hiss on the archive version is bad. C. Miller cleaned up part of this show - keep going sir!
2
Brown Eyed Women
A beauty. Jer's vocals are spot on. Gears up for a mega-epic 2nd half of the set. Listen through the hiss on the archive and enjoy.
4
China Doll
China Doll always helped bring us back down. Listen to this one coming after 62+ minutes of high-powered jamming and fully comprehend its beauty.
2
Sugar Magnolia
Garcia on fire
2
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Slice of '73, great Bob and Keith in transition; seems like cleaner copy is in vault...
2
Bertha
Slower tempo gives room to move; Phil especially active
