Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
29min of goodness on this one!!
23Weather Report Suite
Tasty textures. Great soundboards are available for this awesome jam.
45China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Hard-charging drumming from Billy leads the way. Best MLB jam in this pairing I've ever heard. Hard to believe it wasn't listed yet.
Thunderous peaks, delicate valleys, and everything in between. Bleeds out of an epic Dark Star
15Brown Eyed Women
Bouncy, energetic version
Good ol' country rock and roll at its finest.
Very mellow yet authoritative. Slinky. Jerry's solo melts like no other. One of my favorite solo's he's ever done.
17Ship of Fools
The second live version has a cool slightly different feel.
36Playin' In The Band
A standout version from a great show.
11It Must Have Been The Roses
A pretty, early version from a great show.
16Feelin' Groovy Jam
If this version doesn't take you soaring, you shouldn't be listening to the Dead.
a very good jamming version from early '74
Killer version of this one, awesome show all around gotta hear it!
I like a lot of Sugar MagMama's. This one is performed on their home turf and this show is Amazing!!
9U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Like this Useless blues in the opener slot.
5Beat it on Down The Line
Jammed out more than usual!
5Not Fade Away
Super tasty NFA>GDTRFB>NFA!
8Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
18It's All Over Now Baby Blue
First one in 1.5 years and last one for 7 years. Sweet bust out!
Jerry has some fast licks on this one!
Super high energy version!
3Eyes Of The World
WRS/let it grow > Stella > He's gone > truckin > drums > other one > eyes!!! very very heady hour or so of sound.
Tight little version here. Bare bones beginning and cowboy Bob at the helm
Super short segment of Spanish Jam, but its so unique as the theme is played amongst a pyschadelic background sound. Awesome.
