The Other One
Really cool unique jam in the middle
3
Wharf Rat
Carries forward the intensely creative force of the TOO before it. A glory.
3
Promised Land
What makes this one stand out for me is that Bobby is really high on the mix and you get to hear all the cool stuff he's doing.
6
Bird Song
No such thing as a bad bird song
2
Cumberland Blues
Hot Cumberland for a hot show
2
Playin' In The Band
Longer than Europe versions, but still not the raging beast that would become in following months, still is cool to hear this song morph.
3
Black Throated Wind
Bobby is on
3
Truckin'
Summer '72
1
Sing Me Back Home
Absolutelt gorgeous take on the old tune of a death row prisoner. Sung with such passion and depth truly moving.
1
Not Fade Away
For a show that sometimes lacks a little energy in places, they end it with quite a bang. This outro is exceptionally good.
1
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Possibly the highest energy piece in the whole show. An excellent jam that left the crowd smiling, for certain.
1
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Overlooked, patient little gemerald.
1
El Paso
From the sweet tinkling sounds coming from Jerry and Keith in the first few seconds you know you're in for a sweet version. Gentle, but tight.
2
Tennessee Jed
suble and funky but still with the classic 72 snarl
1
Jack Straw
Crisp and well-played. Awesome show
