37Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Airy, beautiful, flowing rendition
1977 was a helluva year for this song. I have no quarrel w/ 5/5, 5/19, or 5/21, but I think this one beats 'em all by a nose!
35The Music Never Stopped
A ripping version
The band was on fire very overlooked concert
Absolutely Criminal this hasn't been mentioned. Jerry's on Fire, Run and See!!
6The Other One
Only about 8 mins, but some nice runs by Jerry in the middle. Worth checking out. Dave's picks#2.
Top notch energetic and jazzy jam out of this version, with a cool little noodle/space section before they dissolve into drums.
Tight and beautiful, just like every single other 77 version
8Around and Around
Another hot version
