Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Very fine...a fun show all the way around
7
Sugar Magnolia
Sugar Mag>US Blues>Sunshine Daydream...cooked to perfection to end the show
6
High Time
Nothing beats a '76er like this one...just so deliberate it's almost over the top
7
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
It's no wonder they played this in Boston, and it makes one wonder how planned the mini-sammich to finish the show was...grate stuff!!
1
Cassidy
Typically supersonically stellar '76 version of the song...flat-out gorgeous
8
Row Jimmy
Slow groove...all parts are on point...so much tenderness and yet so much power
3
Brown Eyed Women
Everything is gold in this show, and this tune is particularly shiny
28
Comes A Time
Can't believe no one posted this. Far superior to 7/17/76. Filler on the new release (Jan 2012). Comes out of Wharf Rat!
11
Looks Like Rain
Sweet version.
5
Wharf Rat
wharf rat>comes a time, pretty smooth transition
3
Samson and Delilah
Hair-raising 1st set opener. Phil is all over his fretboard. A unique performance with a lot of thick piano work from Keith. Driving drummers!
8
The Music Never Stopped
A little more conservative than usual, but boy it grooves. Part of 2013's 30 Days of Dead.
10
The Wheel
Road Trips Volume 4, No. 5. Classy early Wheel. Great harms and glassy tones.
3
Big River
Smoking hot, as many of the Big River's are after the hiatus. Check them all out.
4
Let It Grow
Let It Grow->Drums->Let it Grow->Wharf Rat->Comes A time very heady an such a cool 1976 type jam fabulous and a little funky.
3
Promised Land
This is why you are a Keith Fan...whew!
2
Dancin' in the Streets
Superb version, surprising not listed yet. Tighter to my ears than the other more well-known ones in the Boston run. Check it out!
3
Friend of the Devil
Perfectly phrased and chosen melody lines from Jerry. Another astonishing FOTD of the era.
1
Tennessee Jed
A nice, slow version with a bouncy and twangy ending solo!
