Black Peter
A mellow early version.

Mama Tried
This was the first version I heard sung by someone other than Merle Haggard. It's been my favorite version ever since.

Dancin' in the Streets
"C'mon everybody get in a big long line and dance around now!" Absolutely primal Dead

Alligator
Okay, the Alligator's kinda short, but I nominate the entire Alligator>Drums>Eleven Jam because it hasn't been talked about on here. Smokin'.
3
Death Don't Have No Mercy
Jerry just nails this version to the wall coming out of a sick Eleven Jam. This one is special.

Easy Wind
Powerful Jam
4
Dire Wolf
one of the best versions. woodsy vibes

Cosmic Charlie
Its kind of a chill slowed version. Doesn't make it any less heady, though. Just different.

Casey Jones
Another fantastic early Casey Jones full blast off version
