Im shocked to be the first reviewer. Check this out or dont, but I suggest you do.

I just found this show. Great Dark Star->SOTOTW sandwich.

Hidden Gem within seventy one!
BIODTL-10 beats before 1st lyric

Phil "Don't beat peoples heads on the floor.." Jerry "yeah, we don't want that...if you want trouble, here it is" then starts playing Tennessee. Always the peace maker.

Big RXR Blues-Will get your blood hot!
Comes A Time-2nd time played! Keith's playing makes this one of the best.
Cold Rain & Snow-odd placement, love it
Saturday Night-BW "this one is an experiment" Phil dominates from the start.

Dark Star-bits of 10/31/71 jam. Excellent tranistion from Sitting
Bobby MeGee-even better transistion, as if the boys are cutting bread
Sugar Magnolia-Love all 71 versions

E: ST. Stephen-1st time played as encore, according to this site.

This Dark Star>Sittin>Dark Star is EXCELLENT!!!!!! Top notch. The transition back into Dark Star from Sittin is seamless and effortless, and is one of the many reasons this band IS THE BEST BAND ON THE PLANET! There's no was about it!

I am listening to the Comes A Time, and Keith's playing is so pretty. Great version of a very young song. Gosh, this song is so pretty.

Strong I Know You Rider jam in Dark Star just before the transition to Sitting On Top of the World.
-Anonymous (07/25/2022)

Fantastic show. In the Dark Star, I actually thought I heard a bit of an Uncle John's Band motif, perhaps just from Phil and Bobby, not sure. Sort of reminiscent of the Nov '69 Dicks Picks UJB jam. Anyway, the DS is great, I love the Sittin' too. NFA is great as always on this tour. The encore is fantastic (SS a bit flubbed, but we'll let it pass).
