Cassidy
Intense build-up jam, perfect touch-down. Weir absolutely nails it. My favorite version all-time
19
Cold Rain and Snow
Powerhouse. Garcia belts out vocals. Hear amazing riff of added notes in the main theme instrumental sections.Drums pound away as well.
4
Cumberland Blues
Shocked this version isn't posted Garcia doesn't want to quit and the vocal harmonies are as good as it gets.

Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
listen for the slipknot alone, another one that will melt your face off

Ultra cool Jerry's leads sound like a drunk wobbling around.

It Must Have Been The Roses
Heartfelt version with great vox in the middle of a storming first set.

Brother Esau
This one bounces, spins, and rolls through the waves rather well.

New Minglewood Blues
Injected with Weir’s idiosyncratic slide runs; then Jerry sends it around for another lap.
