Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Scarlet starts off slow, but picks up after to first solo to an amazing jam into Fire, which turns into a crazy whoop an' holler
12
Pretty Peggy O
Gentle, melodic version. Sweet
8
Deal
Jerry's solo builds fantasticly to a huge melodic power peak. One of the best Jerry solos I've ever heard on this song BY FAR.
11
Estimated Prophet
The "middle solo" in this version is just stunningly climactic!
11
Wharf Rat
Jerry has an amazing, towering solo after the "I'm sure she's been true to you" verses...flies like a bird.
8
Jack Straw
From DP 25, Opens show at New Haven. Takes no prisoners. Extra shot of Jerry heading in bridge jam. Kinda surprised it's not on a list of 90+ Straws
6
The Other One
Amazing Other One coming out of drums. No build-up, all energy. Garcia blasts off between the verses and takes it to the stratosphere.
2
Let It Grow
Jerry shreds this one up.
1
Bertha
This Bertha cooks. Definately deserves to be here. Jerry forgets the last verse, but the less Jerry sings, the more Jerry plays.
4
Eyes Of The World
Creatively energetic Eyes out of a fantastic Estimated. Featured on DP-25. Sparkling Usborne matrix may be better than Dick's
1
They Love Each Other
This is a gorgeous version. This whole show warrants a listen.
2
Sugar Magnolia
Ripped like a mutha. Hot Af show.
1
Big River
Smoking hot, how is this not one here?! Some great solos from Jerry, good bit of Keith in the middle. Comes out of a fast mamu, what's not to like!
