Last uptempo TLEO

I really dig the tempo of the early Roses.
-Annie (02/12/2013)

10:36 of Playin' is unmistakably the progression of Slipknot! Folks are debating if this is the first one performed live.

Amazing show from start to finish. Clocking in right under 3.5 hours of sweet ‘74 GD music, perfect soundtrack for some good road trippin or any other trippin your lovely heart desires. Check it out fellow heads you shouldn’t be disappointed with this mid winter SF gem! Peace

Awesome - beat roses ever.

Surprised no one has mentioned that there is a high quality soundboard recording of the pre-show sound check that circulates (mine from a Charlie Miller master).

It goes:
//Let it Grow
They Love Each Other
U.S. Blues
U.S. Blues
Attics of My Life
It Must Have Been the Roses

Yes they did U.S. Blues twice in a row - it's a soundcheck after all and it was a brand new song. First version is picture perfect and second version is pretty good but with a false start. Ironic and a bit sad these two were so good given that the U.S. Blues show opener was flubbed to all hell; but then that's the Dead - you take the imperfect along with the perfect!

Then an Attics! Pretty special given they hadn't played it for 2 years prior and wouldn't play it again till 89!!! Great version. Mood and harmonies kind of destroyed by Phil cursing a blue streak in the middle of it (about the levels, of course), but then again, this is a soundcheck and that's what it's for!

The Jam at the end is a special little thing. Charlie Miller lists it as an "Estimated Prophet Jam", but to me it sounds nothing like that. I'm thinking it is more like an instrumental Not Fade Away without the signature drum beat. Whatever it is, it is very melodic and to my ear pretty much unique. We get 2:37 of it then Charlie fades it out at the end but it's obviously still going. Wish we could have had the whole thing but again, that's the Dead - this was a special treat to begin with and we should be grateful enough for that...

Oh, I forgot to mention the Roses - that runs to over 13 minutes and starts out with an instrumental Jam and some interesting noodling as well. Jerry is singing but his mike is turned off for some of the first 5 minutes too. Then they regroup and turn on the mics and go into an amazing first version!

Overall a neat little gem that's well worth getting. Cheers!
