Big River
Great Me and My Uncle -> Big River! Very hot and Interesting Jams!

Promised Land
Both the best and worst version ever. Why? April Fool's gag: Bobby - keys, Brent & Jerry -drums, Billy - bass - Mickey -guitar Phil-vocals
6
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
This “I know you Rider” has one on the tightest, most energetic closing jams you have ever heard. Not a well know show, give it a listen.
2
Estimated Prophet
what a segment Estimated->He's Gone- The Other One This is a magical segment full of that grateful dead spine tingling goose bump inducing jamming.
2
The Other One
Bobbyu and Brent are dynamic in this version, really excellent out of he's gone and leads into drums, love the song when it shows up pre- drums
2
Shakedown Street
Great version, as good as many 70s versions.
2
He's Gone
A solid version with a passage about a minute long straight out of the heavens - directly following the a capella section. Must hear.

Candyman
Warm, gooey, and dynamic.

Friend of the Devil
Nice slow version. Picked by Dave on 11/6/20
