Another Brent era beauty. The ending is spectacular!!
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!
12China 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
5Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
standing on a folding chair in the first row, the entire show was high energy and this version was particularly memorable.
Road Trips Vol. 3, No. 4. There is something about that Hammond Organ that makes this song like a church hymn. Strong version.
11Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Awesome, underated version. Most aren't familiar because it is only on Road Trips Vol 3 #4. Must listen!
A short, incredibly dense, and interesting piece of space
5Take A Step Back
Do to security allowing the floor to be jammed Bobby is forced to open set 2 with a take a step back. Polka themed
The boys comin' in HOT for the college kids > Greatest Story....yup.
14Pretty Peggy O
Check out the whole show - upfront nice qual aud here for a great show. Road Trips v.3#4
10Feel Like A Stranger
Excellent pre-drum Stranger that is very interesting.
8The Other One
Excellent 10 minute version...great Phil intro. Top notch version in the great pre-drums.
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.
1Around and Around

1Johnny B. Goode
After a heady around
