Wharf Rat
Second version is just is good as the first. Off of Three from the Vault.

Dark Hollow
Nice electric version.
11
Smokestack Lightnin'
The all-howling, all-wailing, gritty loping groove laid down here is amazing. AhhhwooOOOOooOOOoooofareyouwell
6
Greatest Story Ever Told
Flawless instrumentation. Not as trippy as some versions, but the groove is far superior. Wisely omits the "left handed monkey wrench" verse.
11
Easy Wind
Three From the Vault - tight as hail!
7
The Other One
Three from the Vault version; Tumbling, fiery, madness, Garcia lights this one up; The bus stopped by at the Capitol Theater, did you get on?
5
Good Lovin'
20 min. Pig rap-fest; Heavy and fast barnburner, thunderous drums, and nimble bass
2
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
3 from vault killer version
5
Bertha
Bertha on steroids! The boys knock this one out. First show without Mickey, appears on 3 from the vault.
5
Loser
A delicate, tight, searching super early version of a staple. Kruetzmann plays it light and springy and that 1971 Lesh caramel bass guitar!
3
Truckin'
First song of the first show of Micky's hiatus from the band. Billy more then makes up for his absense, providing a hard, rolicking, steady beat.
