42
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Great jamming from the Saratoga forest
46
Morning Dew
Often cited as one of the best, if you like POWER with your DEW, look no furthur
6
Throwing Stones
comes rising like a Phoenix out of an Atomic Dew. Builds a nice groove and Brent is playing some very new wave sounding tones. Bobby sings his heart
7
Althea
excellent version from a truly killer show.
3
Big River
Great Jerry/Brent interplay. This whole damn show smokes if you can get past the lack of a SBD. The Huston/Miller remaster ain't too shabby.
3
Mexicali Blues
Magic in Saratoga! You can tell when Jerry chips in on the refrain, he's having a good old time.
4
Bertha
One of my favorite versions. When they open with a Bertha like this, you know you're in for a hell of a ride.
4
Deal
Roarin Version, First show at SPAC!

Jack Straw
Great guitar work highlights this version, Jerry is dialed in from the get-go. Great show.
1
Touch of Grey
High energy early version to close out a great set 2. Everyone is on it here.
