Alabama Getaway
with authority
4
Easy To Love You
I, personally, like the earlier versions better.
3
Don't Ease Me In
Proves the boys could really swing when they wanted to. Hear Jerry on "The Girl I Love" line; like 'Gator Alley--1980 a good year for this tune
6
Friend of the Devil
Killer version from a great show.
9
Jack Straw
It's cold in Alaska, but this song was hot. BOOM.
5
Franklin's Tower
Right out of the jack straw opener.. balls deep. This show is super fresh. Go, 80s dead!
2
The Other One
Kicking Estimated Prophet->The Other One.

Althea
I cant believe this one hasnt made the list, crisp vocals and stellar guitar work, its like jerry is painting the air.
4
Deal
Great version with nice energy
4
Let It Grow
Jerry really burns on this one. Surprised it's not yet posted
5
Not Fade Away
Sick Drumz>NFa with some heavy Brent MOOG action. To me it's one of the more unique versions and should not be overlooked
1
Space
Short but oh so sweet fuzzfest of Brent-centric gooyness seamlessly into a typically funkified 1980 NFA
2
Estimated Prophet
Funky. Great jamming on this one
2
Mama Tried
Bringing the Desert to Alaska, this one rocks heavy in the chilliest state!
4
Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
In a heady show from Alaska, this suite fits perfectly in a sneaky brilliant show
2
Ship of Fools
This one plays pretty true to form, but a strong, clean, and powerful rendition with nice guitar breakdowns from Jerry.
