It's like butter. The transition that is. 1/2Step>MHBTR
Epic show opener (I mean how many Scarlet OPENERS were there really?!) and a ton 'o fun!!!
Trippy and intense
8Greatest Story Ever Told
Row Jimmy can't be too slow or it drags; Jerry's got to be on because the beat is tricky. This has both.
I love what Phil does on this one. This thing is short and sweet.
10Ramble On Rose
Jerry is in his element.
10Ship of Fools
Oversight City ... NBA Finals on mute, 7 31 in the air ... Beautiful Ship

A scorcher, love the energy on this one, really swingin'!

I like this one that closes an amazing 3rd set!
If you don't like Seastones; you'll really hate this one
4Me and My Uncle
Miller soundboard is perfect. Fun, upbeat, tight version.
1Beat it on Down The Line
Crackling. Hits the itch
check out Bills drumming around the mid point... he stands out the whole show
