11Its All Over Now
i have always loved this version
love the early versions
20Friend of the Devil
near perfect late '70's version. Enough said,listen to this one.
Farewell to Winterland; Not 40 mins. long ; no break down into feedback nonsense. Just sweet jazzy jamming; Just exactly perfect send off.
13From the Heart of Me
A good version of this underrated song.
34Ramble On Rose
Do I hear angels? Yep, Jerry's at it again.
9Johnny B. Goode
The Closing of Winterland.
25I Need A Miracle
Closin' Winterland with the harmonicas! Hot hot hot
i've heard a million of these, and this one is closest to perfection. heartfelt vocals, minimal flubs, and the groove is locked in. tight!
37Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
2nd song to open show at the closing of Winterland
8Around and Around
With a bunch of guests, Jerry goes fucking nuts.
Opens the show! Give a listen.
15Not Fade Away
Closing of the Winterland. Not Fade Away has John Cippolina as special guest! HOT!
8Me and My Uncle
Just about perfect....
Country stomping big river! Nice piano.
14Samson and Delilah
Nice and hot. Bob's vocals are on.
Shocked this one wasn't already here. Top 3 in my book.
6And We Bid You Goodnight
You only get about the half the song in the recording but the band is awesome sounding and the audience is going insane!
immortalized in the film taken that special evening. fantastic version with all the elements. watch the video!
12Playin' In The Band
Nice locked in version. 13 minutes of what a Playin' should be.
19 minutes, man it gets weird: whistles, gamelans, melodica solo, bird calls, kazoos, explosions: was every one in on the jam? Anyone remember?
Blissful dancealong. As clear a statement of what the good times feeling of the later Donna era could sound like. Nice times.
Classic, how am I the first to vote for this?
6The Other One
Short but sweet version sandwiched between DS and Rat
4Fire On The Mountain
Closing of Winterland is classic Dead
