Truckin'
Enormous peak, really funky Nobody's jam

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Another dynamite, joyous transition into rider. Feelin' Groovy jam is one of the best I've ever heard!!

Greatest Story Ever Told
Blazing, Jerry and Keith gettin' DOWN

Trippy explorations at lightning speed with cool MHUT>Big River sandwich.
5
They Love Each Other
Tight and right. The band is charged up and having fun together. Great energy.
4
Bertha
Great solos, tight ensemble playing kicking of the 2nd set from a great show. Energetic and blazing.
5
Tennessee Jed
Hot building and building jam. One of those shows where just every song rocks. Nothing wrong here...
5
Beat it on Down The Line
Keith and Jerry's solos nail it.
6
Nobody's Fault But Mine
Killer Nobody's jam in which Jerry apparently breaks a string, but Keith steps up very nicely. Some subtle Other One teases towards the end of one.
3
Loose Lucy
A fun version.
6
He's Gone
Beautiful 73 version, outro jam is especially juicy. Leads into a Truckin’ that is equally underrated.
4
Wharf Rat
Worth switching to the AUD to hear the explosive ending after the SBD cuts out. Just awe-inspiring.
3
Me and Bobby McGee
What is this, chopped liver? Just listen to the solo
2
Loser
The mix isn't the best, but the performance is stellar. Definitely worth checking out.
3
Black Throated Wind
If the soundboard were cleaner, this would be a classic. The climax is absolutely stunning and seems to never end.
1
Mexicali Blues
Really moves along nicely
1
Jack Straw
Electrifying first set
1
Brown Eyed Women
Lively and delightful
1
Me and My Uncle
