Here Comes Sunshine
Here Comes Sunshine>China Cat>Rider!! The transition into China Cat is seamless. How was this not a regular trio???
15
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Lots of energy, they're basically yelling the chorus at the end.
6
You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
This version of a fun Loretta Lynn song is mandatory listening for any serious Donna fan!
9
Bird Song
Very nice Garcia fretwork. Intense yet breezy, if that makes sense...
3
Loose Lucy
Third time performed and still a bit loose in the joints, but tighter and funkier than Dane County 2 days earlier.
9
Playin' In The Band
Mindblowing jams reminiscent of the massive '72s. Check out Jer and Phil interplay around 10:00.
4
Truckin'
Just beautiful 2nd set opener. This show doesn't get the attention it deserves! Solid jamming.
4
Row Jimmy
A sweet, crystal clear version (3rd performance ever). Beautiful Bobby behind Jer's strong vocal, even Donna's great. Unfortunate cut around 6:00.
15
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Seemless out of a perfect Here Comes Sunshine. Epic flow, up-tempo, great sounding and flawless jams. What more can a Head need?
5
Box of Rain
So sublimely executed, Jerry adding awesome textures and the Godchauxes bringing the song to new levels!
3
Casey Jones
Pure Jerry on the vocals here - starts out deliberate and then goes for a slow long burn on the end - sweet.

They Love Each Other
thrd time out a beauty. underrated show
2
Mexicali Blues
a little piece of mexico in the twin cities on this evening
1
Looks Like Rain
Keith steps in when Jerry's guitar channel literally dies. Very nice, Mr. Godchaux.
2
Me and Bobby McGee
Beautiful solo; all else being equal that's what matters most...
