A bit overlooked for summer '74, this version is one of the very best. Jerry's cool tone has a lot of bite!

To Lay Me Down
A great version from a somewhat overlooked show.

The last few minutes of this jam are a bute!

Hotness, the NFBM jam is tight out of this one

Wharf Rat
Subtle, sublime beauty

Scarlet Begonias
Everything's perfect and beautiful in this one. Can we just say "All Scarlets from Summer '74 are epically heady", cause I don't know a bad one.

Deal
Some of the best boogie-woogie cowboy barroom stride piano from Keith here.

Nobody's Fault But Mine
A seamless sweet groove - into a very cool TOO. This show doesn't get enough love - all Summer '74 is hot, but this is a real corker.

Let It Grow
Absolute best of 1974. Not kidding. Jerry's leads are ripping & confident. The band plays flawlessly.Can stand w/some of the best of '77. Must hear.

Casey Jones
Relaxed

El Paso
The rippers from June are well-loved, but this version brings just as much heat. Keith and Billy having fun playing with the 3-on-2 Other One rhythm.

Sugaree
Keith mannnn…. Him and Billy have stood out this run
