48New Potato Caboose
Two from the Vault. The Definitive Version!
Two from the Vault. Sharp and energetic. For its time, Garcia and Lesh hit a new level on this one .

Some serious emotion, amazing instrumental break!!
Two From the Vault. Power + Beauty.
22Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Two From The Vault version.
12Turn On Your Love Light
Curious that no one would mention this classic version.
This is the 2 From the Vault version I grew up with. The tight, crisp first half leads to an explosive psychedelic algae bloom in the 2nd. EPIC!
Intense stuff; brisk but heartfelt. Real acid rock. The venue people cut off the power at the end, but 'til then, it's still 7 great minutes.
During Alligator, post-drums. One of the most discernible, helps that show was recorded on multi-track.
