Sphinx Theatre Giza, | Listen on archive

Users have designated the following versions as heady!
Stagger Lee
Americana at it's best at the base of the Sphinx
Eyes Of The World
Almost criminal this isn't here yet. Grab the Egypt '78 CD & hear one of the loveliest "Eyes" ever. Jazzy, intricate, sweet, & inspired!
Promised Land
Kesey video after 12 min. of Ollin Arrageed, worth every second: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMAKJfuP4II
Jack Straw
Jack Straw from Egypt
Estimated Prophet
Length mid verse estimated Jam. Very kind version. These shows deserve more hype.
Terrapin Station
Beautiful version. Jerry flubs a verse, but it don't matter.
Sugar Magnolia
Rockin version. Not much is posted from this run in Egypt. Everything is pretty inspired at these shows.
Ollin Arageed
Flows into Promised land all of these performances at the Sphynx of this Egyptian song are important and powerful this one leads into Promised Land
Ship of Fools
Brilliant delicate opening than Phil comes in and adds some real meat, Nice egypt swing to the proceedings, underrated honestly.
I Need A Miracle
Not the barn burner from the next night a more laid back cool cat mellow groove with phil just getting funky and jerry bending notes over smooth Bobby
This is mostly terrific Phil just carpet bombs the shit out of the whole song and jerry nails it both playing and signing, backing vocals a little f'd
Big River
Net with tons of Phil Bass, If this Miller board were what was cirxulating back in the day the egypt run would be seen in a much more favorable light
