Users have designated the following versions as heady!
Dark Star
This is a magical Jerry fest a true Gem absolutely a fascinating powerful version. After Jerry drops your jaw Keith takes a turn and he too is on A+!!
Playin' In The Band
Joyous and Raucous version, crowd real into it, the band feeds off of it. Gets nice and out there another great one from 1972. Miller Aud is the go to
Sugar Magnolia
Bobby goes absolutely batshit crazy screaming away at the end of this. Killer SSDD section Bobby just screaming his head off.
Tomorrow Is Forever
Wow, this beauty should have absolutely been played more often, Fantastic
Rockin' Pneumonia
Last one ever!
Black Throated Wind
Solid heady version with a great build-up. Sound is only B quality though.
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Great transition into Rider here. Really strong '72 ensemble playing. Sound quality is only about a B though.
Brokedown Palace
For a song notoriously difficult to pull off live, this one is just beautiful. Succinct, harmonious, deliberate: All good, in spite of AUD quality.
Drifty groovage.
