Solid muddy funk jam here to bridge fantastic versions of eyes and crazy fingers

Keith's playing is sweeter than soda pop. Delicate tenderonies

Super peppy, flowing version - feels like a cool breeze on a hot summer day

My favorite out of the spring '77 shows and top 3 for me all time. Dusted this off today and it's like putting on an old sweater that fits just exactly perfect. Awesome segue in from a dream-like PITB, and the final several min are just full band locked in power. Looove this show

Bright, crisp, precise

Not much more that can be said about this version that hasn't already been stated. The real gem of this show and a top tier jam for the tour. It's more contemplative and melodic than others from this era. Everyone locked in, so many special segments. They hint at a Feeling Groovy jam. The portion before Bobby McGee is utterly gorgeous. All-timer, no question.

This one hits the "get up and GO!" button early, then following the initial swell, the band and pig connect on some really interesting improv, instrumentation illustrating the rap.

Cannot say enough about how pumped I am for this RSD release. Show is all-timer and sounds so buttery on vinyl. This Bertha fires out of the gates with tight, passionate playing. For Euro '72, I prefer the HYH version slightly better, but that's likely more for familiarity and nostalgia purposes (I wore that OUT when released). All a matter of preference between these two for best of tour, IMO
