Sugaree
I feel obligated to submit this one since it's my alma mater and since they knock it out of the f'ing park first up at bat...

Looks Like Rain
The vocals are very impassioned, Jerry wailing away on the final, Donna in sync. LOVE this version, check it out.

It Must Have Been The Roses
The entire 1st set from UVM ’78 should be in the list, this Roses is another of the gems from this set.
8
Deal
This version get ridiculous at the end, all three are just screaming “Don’t You Let That Deal Go Down”
2
New Minglewood Blues
Bobby imitates a lion's roar every time he sings the "lion's den" lyric! Raging, ferocious, and full of that late '70s swagger.

Sunrise
Beautiful, Newage Donna song, mystical 5-6-78 show.

Playin' In The Band
Nice confident 16 minute exploration through a spacey playin'

Terrapin Station
Really terrific sequence of a hot confident incredibly delivered Terrapin into a nice hot spacey Playin, wonderful pairing
