Another classic acoustic version
61Viola Lee Blues
Unbelievably powerful version during an unbelievable concert.
107The Other One
Garcia's guitar tone here is pure liquid magic
58Dancin' in the Streets
Another great tune from the legendary Harpur College show. Includes a really great tighten up jam.
Well executed, great sound, and the jam out of this one golden...
48Uncle John's Band
Awesome acoustic version
Beautiful, just beautiful...I guess most of them are...wait for the note at the peak...
Outrageously fast and full of power, this is possibly the best ever
22It's A Man's World
hot, Hot, HOT!!!
Killer acoustic version
22Deep Elem Blues
Jerry's voice just exactly bluesy perfect...groovy & slow acoustic cadence & the boys harmonizing sweetly on the chrouses. Outstanding early version
34I Know You Rider
DP 8 Acoustic Heaven
How is this not here? Came to vote for it, because I was sure it had to be at the top, and it wasn't here at all. Wow. Acoustic and gut wrenching .
24Friend of the Devil
Not to be missed. From one of the top 4 or 5 best Dead shows ever!
The Cryptical Reprise is a beast, this whole show could be nominated, Dick’s Picks Vol. 8, listen again and vote.
Can believe this one isn't already here! A beautiful version from one of the top five shows ever played.
18Don't Ease Me In
Opener for a legendary show. A great acoustic version.
7Beat it on Down The Line
Great acoustic version, when the song was still fresh and you can hear the Binghamton crowd react when Bob starts singing
A short sweet Candyman into the headiest Cumberland Blues of all time
No fuckin way this isnt listed. Its crisp as can be and amongst a pure epic set!
3Big Railroad Blues
Crisp clean and real bluesy, just seems like the ideal railroad in my mind
