Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Sept. 2, 1978
Giants Stadium

Not Perfect, but very high energy. Everyone seems to be trying take it higher and higher. Bobby even gets off a couple David Lee Roth-type screams...
Dark Star
Oct. 19, 1973
Oklahoma City Fairgrounds Arena

A clean, focused, jazzy, and sweet Dark Star into a gorgeously breath-taking Mind Left Body Jam. "Beyond words" sums it up best.
Crazy Fingers
June 17, 1975
Winterland Arena

First Crazy Fingers. Show Opener. As pure as can be....
Playin' In The Band
July 19, 1974
Selland Arena

Wow, this is a real sonic dose here! This Playin' ebbs and flows and rolls on you...very heady!!!
The Other One
May 12, 1974
University of Nevada

Edgy and exploratory, on so many levels. K.Tobin matrix is absolutely sick! Wall of Sound reincarnated! Billy in the zone! Bob flubs lyrics, no matter


Playin' In The Band
July 27, 1974
Civic Center

This Playin' is balls to the wall. Uptempo breakneck pace all the the way through. Bill K is a pure force of nature. Delivers every listen . No Donna scream; don't have to turn your system down, 5 stars !!!!!
The Eleven
Aug. 24, 1968
Shrine Auditorium

Beyond heady!!!
The Eleven
Aug. 24, 1968
Shrine Auditorium

Best transition into DDHNM. Hard, gripping, ripping, focused, trance inducing, flooring...my favorite! This whole jam is perfect...can't believe this isn't voted higher.
Playin' In The Band
March 19, 1973
Nassau Coliseum

This one never lets up throughout; no stops for feedback or noise, just the whole band dripping one power psychedelia all the way through. Definitely heady!
Stagger Lee
Dec. 31, 1978
Winterland Arena

Overall a great version; the best I have heard. Jerry's solo perfectly nails the Stagger Lee melody and the whole vibe is just right.
