Greatest Story Ever Told
Keith is all over this one

Loser
A perfect version
13
Truckin'
Out-friggin-standing 18 min. space/jazz jam out of this Truckin'...then a brief drums segment into a blistering Other One
7
Brokedown Palace
A beautifully rendered rare treat with a nice emotional arc and sweet harmonies.
15
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.
7
Wharf Rat
Exploratory and energetic, coming in the heart of an hour-long jam. Great musicality and clear communication between the boys here.
6
Bertha
Awesome version, Jerry has a cool feedback/sustain part during the solo that just gets me every time. Segues into a killer GSET.
6
Black Throated Wind
a total knockout
6
China Doll
Hits a moment of near complete silence. A beautiful segue from eyes into china doll.

Brown Eyed Women
Attention. To. Detail. - ESP Weir. Not the world's greatest recording, but the band is bubbly & effortless.
6
Tennessee Jed
Energetic, electric, loud!!! The whole band is firing on all cylinders. Red hot!!!!
3
Don't Ease Me In
Strong country kicker. Wolf's leads peal out over Keith's barrelhouse piano accompaniment.
4
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.
5
Row Jimmy
The whole band creates a seamless, burbling groove. (Listen for Phil pushing through the small spaces Bobby leaves.) Mesmerizing.
3
Mexicali Blues
Man, Keith adds so much to this song.
3
Sugar Magnolia
This one's all Jerry.
2
Around and Around
It went down down down
2
Beat it on Down The Line
Potent Keith dancin' all over that pianer
