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...

Moody Coliseum - Southern Methodist University

If a better board of this show had been circulating, this Bertha would be so much higher, and right into one of the best Good Lovins ever, Fall 77


The Other One
Aug. 25, 1972
Berkeley Community Theatre

Dave's 24 is here....
Foolish Heart
June 22, 1991
Soldier Field

I'm a big Foolish Heart junkie and I gotta say it, this FH is just plain weak...The main solo is like they're sleepy and the end jam isn't much better..I'm gonna go and listen to 7/19/89 Alpine valley and The Omni 4/3/91
Pretty Peggy O
April 10, 1978
Fox Theatre

I can't believe this Peggy O wasn't already listed, talk about slipping through the cracks, this has been a fav of mine for years....
April 11, 1972
Newcastle City Hall

Like the others have said, this is a perfect version, Jerry is adding little licks between the vocal the whole time, Phil's voice is in it's high harmony prime, and the outro jam is stunning, just chunky as heck...
Save the Whales
Feb. 9, 1969
Monterey Bay Aquarium

Yeah, it is very hard to find, but once you do, you'll never remember, then always forget...Good Luck...
