30Uncle John's Band
Segues into Wharf Rat>DS>SugarMag...good old American Music
Very nice tender rendition
5Me and My Uncle
GO DIRECTLY TO 21:21 DO NOT PASS GO til you've listed through to 26:51
47Ramble On Rose
Yet another great '72 version.
UJB>Jam>Wharf Rat>Dark Star. The Wharf Rat comes out of a soft, full, thoughtful space - a detour on the journey to the Star.
Good Lovin into a wicked Playin in the Band
16Playin' In The Band
A smooth jam in the middle of the set.
9Me and Bobby McGee
Crisp and sweet as always, but it's Jerry's fills that really make this version.
8Brown Eyed Women
A crisp and powerful rendition, as good as any from Europe '72.
8Sitting on Top of the World
final version Europe 72 performance
Europe was so smoking hot
hot show opener
6Black Throated Wind
My "Go-To" Version
10Black Throated Wind
My "Go-To" Version. Surprised this wasn't already on HV. Jerry's leads are very bluesy and soulful. Really convey the meaning of the song
10Feelin' Groovy Jam
The ultimate.... last dark star of europe '72. Starts with Keith taking the lead after bass & drum solo. Bob jumps in and finally Jerry. Epic,
12Comes A Time
Solid,well sung, nice little solo, and it is so sweet after the huge UJB>Wharf Rat>DS>Sugar Mag that comes before it. It just fits in so well.
Rip-roarin' version. The 2nd set perks up quite a bit after a sleepy 1st. Pig was still on.
8Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
From blisteringly hot, into a sweet-and-light outro > OMSN, turning on a dime. Great fun.
Amazing Version part of an amazing jam!
3One More Saturday Night
Europa 72 ... stand out version ... fireworks!
Planting the Flag of Civilization on this tight scorcher. New from factory - Inspector #9. Under penalty of law, this tag may not be YEAH GARCIA!
11China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Solid Europe 72 ~SBD Charlie & Rob
Very surprised this wasn’t on here, a very fine Euro 72 version. Just right.
2Big Boss Man
Surprised this isn't here already...
1Big Railroad Blues
Ripping as always on E72
For a song with less diversity from one version to the next, this one is better than most, and rare coming so late in the show...
