Cow Palace Daly City, CA | Listen on archive
Really Nice 74 Cassidy. Interesting part on the Birdge (flight of the seabirds part) Bob and Jerry do some humming and Donna sings very cool
38China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Wall of Sound debut version....definitely one of the finest!
33Black Throated Wind
My favorite BTW, really nice solo licks at the end.
Jerry is on fire as always, but so is bobby on guitar! The whole band nailed it perfectly
29Playin' In The Band
Another cool but different Playing->Uncle John's->Morning Dew->Uncle John's->Playing.
16Uncle John's Band
Another great Playing->UJB->Dew->UJB->Playing!
13U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
An excellent start to the first Wall Of Sound show.
Dick's Picks 24 version.
20Weather Report Suite
Builds up a major head of steam
First ever Scarlet Begonias. Very unusual sound with a very tentative, bluesy feel, but it's still a keeper and worth hearing for the novelty at least
Amazing, everything is on point, sandwiched between two UJB's in an epic jam coming from dicks picks 24
Dick's Picks 24, first Wall of Sound show, and a definitive Deal to boot... great Bobby banter too.
Great sounding wharf from great show
11Brown Eyed Women
Dick's picks 24. Tight and straighforward
3Beat it on Down The Line
bobby and donna rock the vocals, Keith is killer, super upbeat tempo
Super underrated version, as the song comes to a close Jerry is having none of it and does another insane solo
Rhythm Ace and Jerry - fantastic version
Very nice and a little funky. Builds to an excellent end jam.
1Ship of Fools
Whole show should've made the pick really
