Althea
Recent Road Trips release is a perfecto: Outstanding vocals from Jerry and a jam after the lyrics that grooves and rocks super-hard. 5-star version!

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
The final jam goes at least once more around than usual. Weir is strumming like a mad man and Lesh as many power chords, great version.RT Vol. 3 No. 4

Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
standing on a folding chair in the first row, the entire show was high energy and this version was particularly memorable.

Wharf Rat
Road Trips Vol. 3, No. 4. There is something about that Hammond Organ that makes this song like a church hymn. Strong version.

Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Awesome, underated version. Most aren't familiar because it is only on Road Trips Vol 3 #4. Must listen!

Love how Jerry leaps from bluegrass riffs to blues bends in his early solos. At the end Bobby and Jerry are twisting and turning around each other.
