7
Playin' In The Band
A great second set jam.
15
She Belongs To Me
One of my favorite Jerry (Dylan) ballads. This one really stands above the rest. Jerry's voice on this could melt a heart of stone.
8
Crazy Fingers
Sweet version of the then rather rare tune, well crafted version
10
China Doll
The meat of a playin in the band sandwich
5
Bird Song
Really good version in an uneven year..
2
Not Fade Away
Cookin! All the cylinders are firing here
3
New Minglewood Blues
Hot, sweaty version with great solos from Brent and Jerry.
4
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
This spicy version won't blow any minds but closes out a totally solid and enjoyable first set. Jerry's got the spices flowing for the Rider solo.
1
Gimme Some Lovin'
Lovin' -> Half-Step to open. Punchy, rocking combo.
4
Hell in a Bucket
Snarling version to open set 2.
3
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Not long or jammed to the hilt, but Jerry sounds really good here. Enjoyable version.
1
Spanish Jam
Pops out of a very good Space.
