They stay in 11/8 time signature, but they seem to move away from the !-IV-V basis. Phil often leads them into it, and it's a very recognizable part. They often used this as a transition into Lovelight (i.e. Live/Dead), but also as a transition into other songs (i.e. Eleven>New Speedway Boogie on 12-20-1969 ... efail.shnf it starts around 9:30). What chords are going on here?
