Caution
Not as notable for the Caution itself as it is for the really out-of-nowhere one time only Jam that follows, must hear territory.
10
Big Railroad Blues
Hot version with some solid harmonica in it.
12
Playin' In The Band
So like Weir's Ace version, however I feel this version is better. The middle jam goes like a spinning top which flips. Amazing.

High-voltage and up tempo shuffle. Great sounding C. Miller cleanup.

Billy's high in the mix, and he drives. A perfect snapshot, with Bobby's sweet young voice in perfect form and a solid driven pulse throughout.

Casey Jones
Insane explosive blowout for the set-closer. Caps an excellent first set with extraordinary energy.

Sugaree
Super-strengthed version with a solid, driving pulse. They took their vitamins this day: The whole show's has that bursting-at-seams energy.

Uncle John's Band
Sugar Magnolia->Caution->Uncle John's Band is a very cool sequence, kind of a preview of the Europe 72 jams.

Big Boss Man
A great energetic version of the song. How this wasn't on here already beats me.
