22
Bird Song
it just keeps building
17
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Effortlessly smooth transition...the boys show they mean business by starting off with this little number
5
Jack Straw
Sweetness
3
Looks Like Rain
Passionate
23
Playin' In The Band
20 minutes of headiness...it gets pretty out there
6
Bertha
Jery gives it a little extra, and Weir is slashing some real gorgeousness
7
Greatest Story Ever Told
Solid Phil bombs, great Kieth work, Weir n Jer shine, and Billy K rocks! Donna contributes nicely too
5
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
A great version from a somewhat overlooked show.
2
El Paso
The boys push behind Bobby like the posse chasing the narrator of the song. You can hear the hoofbeats. Excellent.
2
Row Jimmy
Beautiful ensemble playing. Jerry and Donna harmonise nicely.
10
Dark Star
A long deep ride: Inter-stellar collectivity with deep-space weirdness after 1st chorus.
3
Truckin'
Check out the totally mad vocals. Someone's belting it out, and it ain't Donna! Out of a killer Dark Star.
9
Morning Dew
Massive and powerful. Jerry and Keith are just brilliant. OK, that all from me on this great show.
4
Box of Rain
Phil and Donna kick it out in a show that smokes from the China opener on as a bonus there is a top shelf CM soundboard for your listening pleasure
4
They Love Each Other
early excellent version
3
Loser
Beautiful playing and singing throughout, restrained and focused razor-sharp
1
Promised Land
A charged version that starts off a triple-thread run for this massive second set.
