Attics of My Life
a cool version during the sound check.

It Must Have Been The Roses
The first live version played with a more country feel.
9
They Love Each Other
May be the best of the early versions. Has that '73 bounce, but with something a little extra.
31
Playin' In The Band
Can't believe this isn't listed! Really massive verison with not one, but two slipknot teases. Jerry is on fire!!
9
Big River
Listen to this, then listen again for Jerry's solo: Come back and tell me Big River is a "throw away" song, cause he damn-well tears it up here.
5
Black Throated Wind
A powerful triumph, just exploding with intense jamming and emotion. Real dynamite here.
3
Row Jimmy
Solid and sweet, with some beautiful slide solos and nice vocals, Donna included.
7
Nobody's Fault But Mine
This one has more of an Other One-ish feel than most...they seem like they're pushing for it but end up going in a completely different direction
11
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Twangy on top and chubby below. Phil's mighty sonics in the second break of CCS could be dangerous--don't listen to this while ice fishing!
1
Estimated Prophet
First known soundcheck, interesting to hear the boys try to get the 7/8 time right.
4
Brown Eyed Women
Fun to listen to, love these '74 BEW's!
1
Tennessee Jed
Down 'n' dirty 74.
3
Ship of Fools
Premiere of this stately Jerry ballad.
5
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
I'm uncle sam, how do you do? Off and running tonight at Winterland, the premiere of US Blues.
1
El Paso
A very good '74 el paso. Phil is consistenly strong this night. Great tempoo! Bobby's lyrics are strong on this one as well. Good recording.Listen! :)
1
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Splendid set closer with delightfully boisterous contributions from Keith and a permeating feeling of real joy.
1
Promised Land
This really gets cookin’! Keith, Billy, and Jerry seem to be playing little rhythmic games, switching up the accents in interesting ways.
1
Sugar Magnolia
A Keith stunner! Laying it down on this swingin’ version to nearly close the show. Yowza!
4
Uncle John's Band
Most solid version ever > loses steam > gets back on track for a walloping finish!
