The second set sees the band linking their two 1970 hit's together pre-Drums with the "Uncle John's/Truckin'" combo. Post "Space," Stills joins the band for the second ever "Black Queen." Bobby clearly gets charged up by the performance and calls his fading "Bob Star." as the band geared up "Other One." Stills returns to the stage and tries to keep up with Bobby's encore rap of "Johnny B Goode," but bails in the harmonies because Bobby is going too fast for him.
The fun begins with "Help/Slip/ Frank's" as a door swings open for the second set. Brent really works hard to keep the band together as interplay between Jerry and Phil pushes the "Slip" onward and upward. After a nice "Women" piggybacks on the the energy of the blazing "Franklin's," before venturing into to a mammoth "Playin'." Clocking in at close to 20 minutes this magnificent exploratory jam stretches and reaches the bounds of Grateful Dead excellence.
Again out of "Space," Stills marches out to join the band, this time choosing his most well known solo song. A hippie tribute to free-love, the band puts a charge into "Love the One You're With." Stills leaves the stage as the band uses "The Wheel" to circle back around to reprise "Playin'." An early version of "Throwing Stones," which doesn't have the full written and developed jam break, as Stills returns to help the band rock out the closer "Not Fade Away."
