Veterans' Memorial Coliseum
Delightful rendition with everything you could ask from the era. Awesome in sync groove driving the song with Jerry dancing on top through the solo
It Must Have Been The Roses

Augusta Civic Center
When I first heard this it was “Woahh..” It still is. Every time. The guitar and keyboard tones are something else. Each note activates a dissociation in my mind. Surprised I have wrecked my car listening to this one! That ending solo… Jerry pulls my soul halfway out of my body.
Black Throated Wind
March 23, 1974
Other comments encompass everything well! Incredible Jerry licks and his guitar tone is impeccable! Bill on point throughout with good intro. Bobby and whole crew in sync and soaring especially at the end. Top 3 version. I wish it was 10 minutes long rather than 7. Seems like there could be an extra 3 minutes of jamming at the end.
They Love Each Other
Oct. 9, 1982
Should be higher on list. The in sync groove and Jerry + Brent solos hits all the right spots!
West L.A. Fadeaway
Oct. 9, 1982
A bit up-beat tempo. Bands in sync. And Jerry does some great solo work!
