WOW So Smooth Jerry Sounds Crisp
2Ramble On Rose
Had to add this version just for the “The Grass Ain’t Greener, the Wine Ain’t Sweeter…” line. Probably the best version I saw live. Give it a listen.
5Mind Left Body Jam
MLB jam is HEady
"Dressed myself in green/ducked back into a tree"
Jerry shreds, Bob shreds, Phil's always shredding, Brent is shredding, hell, everyone is shredding
Heyyyyy hey baby to start. Brent nailing his organ, bobby rapping and ya "GOTTA HAVE LOVIN" BIG MISS ON THIS ONE!!!!!!!!
2Brown Eyed Women
This is a good straight version. Don't know why, I just like it.
3Friend of the Devil
Surprised this isn't here. Slow, and so soulful from Jerry. Brent is otherwordly an creates what I can best describe as a cocoon of sound on the keys
2Looks Like Rain
Can't believe this one hasnt been posted! Awesome jam, powerful ending energy > deal. smokin
2Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Some of the smoothest rhythm Bobby ever laid down on this tune. Brent provides great harmony. Super sweetness here!
On the heels of a sweet MLB jam - Bobby blows some lyrics but the playing is where it's at - dissolves into a nice Wharf Rat
