357Eyes Of The World
Beautiful. Fast. Inspired.
Give yourself some time and listen to this show all the way thru...so mellow but so full of that special energy
Wonderful...starts off a huge jam set culminating w Sunshine Daydream...epic
Surprised this isn't already here...Jerry is all over it and the crowd just eats it up
31Uncle John's Band
This show has to be up there in the Greatest Setlist debates, and the performance is top-notch...here's one reason why
Nice 'n mellow with a fine finishing flourish
92Playin' In The Band
...with a scarlet sandwiched inside. very nice.
Shocked this one is not posted yet...heavy duty performance here. One of the rare shows where every song is played perfectly to the max
7Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Smooth and joyful
6The Other One
Jazzy Other One with a really nice segue out of Spanish jam.
Excellent version. Garcia's playing is sharp and jazzy, and Phil is laying into it with some nice bombs. Smooth segue into a great Other One jam
Absolutely gorgeous version, one of the best of the period.
Unusual and fiery version making up the meat of an otherworldly Playin' sandwich.
Superb AUD tape version. A must have
Great truckin' morphs into a mellow and tripy space jam to finaly go into spanish jam
5Beat it on Down The Line
always thought '72 was the year of the jack straw's, but this is a cool version. By all means not a best ever, but cool one from an iconic show.
7Don't Ease Me In
Rare one for 1974.
4Ship of Fools
Sweet & mellow, pretty much a perfect Ship
3U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Encore for a Great show
Top drawer performance in a stellar show is probably why no-one has rated this yet.
1Me and My Uncle
Jerry is a bit subdued BUT the solo may be the best ever.
bouncy, energetic, can't believe it isn't up already
Strange to not see this already on here. The boys are on (as they are throughout this legendary show). And listen to Billy!
Can’t believe I get to submit this one. A superior El Paso! ‘74 fire
