You will love it.

Cumberland Blues
Smokin' out of control

Playin' In The Band
Packs a lot into its 4.5 short minutes. Great bass-heavy SBD gives you a Phil masterclass. Love the short ones, love the long ones....

Loser
JG beams out killer tones while Phil crushes heads in the People's Repbulic.

Uncle John's Band
2nd half of a double encore - listen to Jerry's unique phrasing so different then later versions.

Johnny B. Goode
In true hard rocking '71 fashion - cover yer nuts.

Another snapshot of Phil's prominence throughout these Berkeley shows.
