Free Spirit



Big River
Sept. 11, 1982
West Palm Beach Auditorium

This is a BIG OL RIVER! This whole show is so special, and totally 'under the radar'...Check it out, and hold on tight!!!
Let It Grow
Sept. 11, 1983
Downs of Santa Fe

I know it's cliche' but it's fucking insane that this version hasn't been listed yet! It's balls out heady
Save the Whales
Feb. 9, 1969
Monterey Bay Aquarium

Definitly the best one! The 1st 2 hours are a little plodding, but once the acid kicked in, it was smoooth sailing!
Tennessee Jed
April 16, 1983
Meadowlands Arena

Killer Solo, Amazing Jed in a Killer 83 show, Deadbase has it as the #2 show of 83'.
Around and Around
April 15, 1978
William and Mary College Hall

Cliche, but how in the Holy Hell is this version not listed? This whole show smokes in that beautuful 78 way...


The Music Never Stopped
May 3, 1977
The Palladium

If this show circulated in SBD, it would get SO much more attention, and this MNS is INSANE....
Pretty Peggy O
May 22, 1977
The Sportatorium

It was left off of Dick's 3 actually...along with El Paso, Minglewood, FOTD, Ramble on Rose, Brown Eyed Women, Good Lovin and Sugar Mags...Twas a long show...
Dancin' in the Streets
June 3, 1976
Paramount Theatre

The last time Dancin was played was 12/31/71...
Dark Star
Feb. 24, 1974
Winterland Arena

This Dark Star grows on me as well, much like a rare auto-immune skin condition, which causes enormous wart like growths all over my body, but without all of the social problems that go along with that...
Feb. 24, 1974
Winterland Arena

After this particular version of 'Bertha', the legend goes. that Bertha indeed, did NOT come around there anymore...
