Wharf Rat
Sweet, sweet version
42
The Other One
Unreal, easily top 5, one of the most tripped out jamin' versions known. Exquisite!
62
Greatest Story Ever Told
Greatest STEPHEN ever Told. Jerry rips into a "St.Stephen" jam in the bridge jam before the reprise. 2d only to 8/27
7
Black Throated Wind
A standout version from a great show.
6
Truckin'
A standout Truckin' from a great show.
17
Playin' In The Band
Fantastic version.
4
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Amazing guitar playing
14
Brokedown Palace
While not without imperfection, this version gets at that misty quality central to the ethos of the tune.
10
Sugar Magnolia
Scorching little ditty. Hard to believe this hasn't made it yet.
17
He's Gone
Wow. Everyone is on during this great show, bob's guitar really does it for me. Won't you give it a listen!?
5
Not Fade Away
Great finish to a great show.
4
Promised Land
Rocking, although Weir seems a little out of breath. Check out Jerry's scream after "...and the poor boy's on the line."
8
Me and Bobby McGee
Towards the end of a other one jam, this version is mellow, sweet and unpredictable.. a must listen for fans of this song!
5
Brown Eyed Women
Great version in the middle of a stacked first set.
5
Bertha
A bouncy second set opener that goes straight into the greatest Stephen Ever Played
3
Drums
Phil jams with the RD's > TOO
4
Tennessee Jed
Definitely should be on the list. Excellent Jed from a legendary show!!!
6
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Subtly experimental transition jam seems to hint at “Feelin’ Groovy” without stating the theme outright.
2
Ramble On Rose
Much like the Philly version a week earlier, this one really shines.
1
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Jerry Hitting a mean solo in this one, just makes you want to dance!
1
Mexicali Blues
Very humorous lines from Garcia during the last verse of this version, made me smile
