7Pretty Peggy O
Another version drenched with Jerry's beautiful guitar work.
8Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Completely unique and interesting jam out of this one. Sweet Caribbean feel
Great Nice Extended Edition of Blow Away!
11Touch of Grey
as good as it gets
spacey cool jam that meanders into Estimated
There's a reason this is on the 'Spring 1990 So Glad You Made It' compilation release.
9Black Throated Wind
First breakout since 1974. Crowd going nuts almost immediately! Alternate lyrics which were good but discarded.
Another great 1990 version. This 3/16/90 show is one of the best of this epic tour and the Scarlet>Estimated is a barn burner.
7Ship of Fools
I have mixed feeling of this song. Its terrible when the boys are not on overall, but pleasant at an epic show. This one is perfect.
6Let The Good Times Roll
Great way to get things rolling at this tremendous show. Also into one of the best Touch's of all time!
5The Other One
Short but intense and powerful. If you like early 90's Dead....this show is a classic and must listen. Great one for this era.
Perfect version! Beautiful solo at end. Goes into a smokin' Sugar Mag, but they almost have to abort the reprise.
4Queen Jane Approximately
First song from this set that really grabbed me. Beautiful playing from the entire band.
5Drums -> Space
Thunderous drums. Cool delay effects from Garcia.
Brent just shines all over this beauty
Not Space, but since there's no category for "jam" this beautiful calypso improv out of WomenRsmarter will have to do (also has an "Eyes" tease)
