93Greatest Story Ever Told
Simply can't be beat.
77Sing Me Back Home
Too beautiful for words
just incredible - thats all.
Some nice solos in this one!
49Black Throated Wind
Some different lyrics in the first verse: 'cloverleaf town' instead of 'running aground'
HOT song for a HOT day!
All I can say is: This is the cream of Casey Joneses. Pure awesomeness
Soo much energy its both sloppy and tight all at once, again the ripping start does it for me everytime. "Ok here you go, the Grateful Dead"
I've Never heard Jerry play this fast in any other one. Classic version, even more classic show.
Creamery Benefit version
17One More Saturday Night
I dont know why this hasnt been listed yet...but it is COOKIN.
All the way from Pluto to El Paso
uh.....this one should be towards the top .
23Me and My Uncle
This version from the Springfield Creamery benefit is a perfect example of psychedelic cowboy outlaw dead. The sped up tempo helps paint the picture..
Blustering guitar solo from Jerry....
Sure it's only a tease that's aborted for El Paso, but it's Veneta, so it has to be the best!
2I Know You Rider
