Eyes Of The World
One where everything went just exactly perfect. Firey version, brimming with full band communication
13
Greatest Story Ever Told
Keith is all over this one
8
Loser
A perfect version
19
Truckin'
Out-friggin-standing 18 min. space/jazz jam out of this Truckin'...then a brief drums segment into a blistering Other One
12
Brokedown Palace
A beautifully rendered rare treat with a nice emotional arc and sweet harmonies.
21
The Other One
A massive, heavy, rocketship of a performance: Explosive liftoff, mining expedition to deep space, smoking craters, then a long sweet fast ride home.
11
Wharf Rat
Exploratory and energetic, coming in the heart of an hour-long jam. Great musicality and clear communication between the boys here.
10
Bertha
Awesome version, Jerry has a cool feedback/sustain part during the solo that just gets me every time. Segues into a killer GSET.
9
Black Throated Wind
a total knockout
10
China Doll
Hits a moment of near complete silence. A beautiful segue from eyes into china doll.
5
Brown Eyed Women
Attention. To. Detail. - ESP Weir. Not the world's greatest recording, but the band is bubbly & effortless.
8
Tennessee Jed
Energetic, electric, loud!!! The whole band is firing on all cylinders. Red hot!!!!
4
Don't Ease Me In
Strong country kicker. Wolf's leads peal out over Keith's barrelhouse piano accompaniment.
6
The Race Is On
The short, country-style numbers sound so good in this set. There's a lot of good music in this show even before the big jams arrive.
10
Row Jimmy
The whole band creates a seamless, burbling groove. (Listen for Phil pushing through the small spaces Bobby leaves.) Mesmerizing.
5
Mexicali Blues
Man, Keith adds so much to this song.
5
Sugar Magnolia
This one's all Jerry.
4
Around and Around
It went down down down
4
Beat it on Down The Line
Potent Keith dancin' all over that pianer
3
Casey Jones
Hot closing rendition with some fast-paced Keith playing
1
El Paso
They really attack it as opposed to sauntering through it…one of the most energetic I’ve heard! Don't let an audience tape scare ya...
1
Drums
Pretty trippy one bridging the gap between an epic Truckin' and a pretty great TOO
