Kinkymania was at its peak in 1973; the band had been playing sold-out shows in Texas and at Max's Kansas City in New York. The audience for the evening included Jerry Garcia and Ken Kesey. All the "hits" are here, from "We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to You," "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed," "Sold American," and of course "Ride 'Em Jewboy."
