5Me and My Uncle
Bobby's voice sounds beautiful, one of his clearest, nicest vocal performances of this one.
Way up-tempo and crisp and groovy. This was Keith's first run of shows and their's popping creative energy throughout.
Some of the sweetest group vocal harmonies ever. How is this show not more highly rated?
So beautiful I had to stop it mid way through and start it again. Impassioned, clear sounding, great vocals and harmonies. (Phil!) Perfect.
6Me 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....
20The 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.
8Comes A Time
Pure. One of the first performances with beautiful, meaning-soaked delivery.
7Cold Rain and Snow
Dave's Picks 3 version
nice version from Dave's Picks 3
nice early version with Keith from Dave's Picks 3
smokin version from Dave's Picks 3
Rippingly good early version with Keith way out front. Jerry and the whole crew rock it hard!
3The Frozen Logger
Some fun banter from the band and a little taste of cold rain and snow towards the end.
Second time played shows improvement.
1One More Saturday Night
C'mon folks!!!! A rockin' good time on this one.
