Dark Star
A breathtakingly emotive performance.
14
Mountains of the Moon
Incredibly beautiful no other way to put it
23
The Other One
OK, so this gets pretty overshadowed by the other heavy-hitter of this show, but this That's It... suite is one of the hottest ever!
7
Cosmic Charlie
Killer LiveDead era version.
45
St. Stephen
How could no one include the LIVE/DEAD version????? Classic and a keeper!
5
Cryptical Envelopment
A particularly jazzy version; Jerry is ablaze and climbing to enormous heights.
2
Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Tight, solid version. Some nice harmonica playing from Pigpen.
11
The Eleven
After THE Dark Star and probably the best St. Stephen. How is this not here?
4
Doin' That Rag
pure psychedelic energy
3
Dupree's Diamond Blues
This begins a set that goes Dupree's, Mountains->Dark Star->St.Stephen->The Eleven->Lovelight->Cosmic Charlie. Each song is a definitive version.
1
Death Don't Have No Mercy
This is the one. Jerry shows what he learned from Janis vocally on this one. Just dripping with emotion.
