Good ear! I hadn't caught this before. For sure the intro for Jack Straw. I'm with Lou on this, Bobby started it off with the opening chords for JS and Jerry followed suit. Haven't heard Black Throated Wind without the usual opening anywhere else (yet, could be out there somewhere). They kinda rush the intro later on for JS, now seemingly on purpose, so as not to repeat the same open from just a few songs ago.

Yes Lou. It seems to have been a head fake by Bob which initiated the oddity.

I was just working away while listening and started singing JS.

Now, listening to JS I think Jerry offers pay-back by playing the first notes of BTW. Down the rabbit hole!
