5
Me and My Uncle
Bobby's voice sounds beautiful, one of his clearest, nicest vocal performances of this one.
6
Tennessee Jed
Way up-tempo and crisp and groovy. This was Keith's first run of shows and their's popping creative energy throughout.
7
Jack Straw
Some of the sweetest group vocal harmonies ever. How is this show not more highly rated?
7
Black Peter
So beautiful I had to stop it mid way through and start it again. Impassioned, clear sounding, great vocals and harmonies. (Phil!) Perfect.
6
Me and Bobby McGee
This one's a must for fans of this song: I know I'd trade some of my tomorrows for one more yesterday with Bobby & Co. Sweet and meloncholy....

The Other One
Get lined up, put on your helmet, then prepare to be shot out of a cannon for about 30 minutes. This is what early Dead is all about.

Comes A Time
Pure. One of the first performances with beautiful, meaning-soaked delivery.
