El Paso
They put a little extra oomph on this for the El Paso crowd

Greatest Story Ever Told
Keith steals this one. Nice groove
16
Eyes Of The World
This one cooks nicely. Great era for the song
12
Weather Report Suite
VERY spicy, down on the border jams!!!
4
Looks Like Rain
So very tender. Check out Jerry's beautiful solo during the bridge!
5
Loser
Nov. '73 and there isn't a bad show in it. This Loser has something special in its tightness and the tempo (doesn't drag). Damn they were good.
5
The Race Is On
Cool version full of Bill.
9
The Other One
This is most notable, I'd say, for the absolutely nuclear bomb that Phil drops during the 'Space' portion. Play it loud on a big rig!
8
He's Gone
Wonderful He's Gone->Truckin->The Other One sequence. Stellar 1973 Magic
8
Truckin'
Wickedly Hot Truckin, stellar sequence Typical 1973 excellence
3
Johnny B. Goode
Keith really likes this song!
3
Tennessee Jed
If possible, a very contemplative TJ. Everyone's in apex '73 form, esp. Godchaux who's mixed fairly high to good effect.
3
Deal
Well played, gets the show off to a good start
3
Bertha
What is this, chopped liver?
2
Jack Straw
Great solo
2
Big River
Keith's on fire.
2
Me and My Uncle
Lots of energy
3
Me and Bobby McGee
Beautiful transition from The Other One. Bobby singing is soulful. Amazing
2
Mexicali Blues
Jerry's fingers can't stop! No wonder Deal comes next.
