Dark Star
Amazed this isn't here yet Gorgeous, melodic, jazz-infused, mellow, trippy, spacey into hard ripping Jerry riffs; melts into Brokedown Palace. Sublime
6
Playin' In The Band
An enjoyable listen, but most notable, I'd say, for an excellent little peak that rises up like a volcano towards the end of the jam.
3
Morning Dew
Jerry really belts this one out. All of the attention to detail that you'd expect in a version from this era plus a good bridge solo.
5
Brokedown Palace
This melts like a dream from a weirdly underrated Dark Star & is sung beautifully by Jerry & played sweetly by all. Give a listen!
1
Black Throated Wind
No bad ones at all from this era, but listen in and you can hear Jerry drive Bobby higher and higher. Great powerful emotive energy.
1
Jack Straw
Listen through the murky AUD and you'll find a powerhouse version that clearly blew the doors off. Crowd energy contributes to a great version.
1
Big Railroad Blues
Really needs a cleanup, or some miracle tapes to clear the sound on this little gem. They were on. Where's the rest of the SB?
1
Greatest Story Ever Told
Streaks across the sky like a comet. Choose the SBD version, you won't regret it. Bobby and Donny are totally on together.
