Get lost in the majesty and mystery of Road Trips Vol. 4, No. 3. The 3-disc set features the entire November 21, 1973 concert at the Denver Coliseum as well as an excellent sequence of tunes from the second set of the previous night’s Denver show (11/20/73)!
A prime slice of Rocky Mountain Dead, Road Trips Vol. 4 No. 3 offers up a psychedelicornucopia of wondrous new tunes including “Here Comes Sunshine,” “Mississippi Half-Step,” “Weather Report Suite,” “They Love Each Other,” and “Stella Blue.” Each a classic in its own way, this crop of new songs proved indicative of some of the exciting new directions the band’s music was taking. What’s more, the band’s killer second set features a spectacular hour-long medley that begins with “Half-Step,” segues into “Playing in the Band,” travels 715 miles due south for a little gunplay in “El Paso,” dips back into the “Playing” jam for a spell, then into a superb “Wharf Rat,” back to a dynamic “Playing” reprise, and is topped off by one of the best versions of “Morning Dew” from this period. My, oh my!
Sonically this is certain to exceed your expectations as it has once again been mastered to HDCD specs for maximum punch and clarity.
