Casey Jones
Slowed down and not coked out. Pretty.
28
The Other One
Fiery opening. Exciting & engaging exploratory middle part. Great climax with Pig's organ sound like the Police is on the way to shut the show!
9
Not Fade Away
Very good with interesting closing jam before it fades into GDTRFB
16
Playin' In The Band
A lovely little gem. The outro jam is starting to stretch.
15
Black Throated Wind
Another super tight version from E72 with hot ending.
10
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Awesome version. Bob basically takes lead on the transition. Pretty cool playing by him. Worth a listen.

Big Railroad Blues
Smokin' version from Lille. Not a lot of hype from this unknown show, but def. has some tasty stuff.

Hurts Me Too
Definitive?

Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad

Mister Charlie
Distinctly slower, with a greasier funk vibe. Surprised it isn't here. Different from the others and lots of fun.
11
Truckin'
Unforgivable that you guys overlook Truckin'. There's a reason it's the one song non-heads know. This one is a forgotten colossus. Listen up.
9
Sugar Magnolia
Perfect musical sunshine. This one even got my not-at-all-into-the-Dead wife to dance around like a trippin' hippy, so you know it's good.
1
Drums
Typically tasty Truckin' > TOO bridge on this tour...
