Great party starter. This song always signals good time ahead.

Sweet slow buildup to an explosion of emotion and Jer's flying guitar work. A strong version.

Powerful version. Is the only reason it's not yet here because only AUDs exist? Jeez Heads, get it together!

Absolute ripper. Band sounds like they started warm and heated up. Great first set.

Johnny B. Goode

Starts with Jerry barking orders: "Rock and Roll! Rock and Roll!" and it doesn't disappoint. Caps off a high intensity blazing glory of a show. DP33.

Listening to all of '66 and this feels like the very first fully realized one.

Fans of this song need to hear this! It's down to the bare bones, young, raw and full of passion.

You'd almost call this a Phil song at this point in the early history of the band. So cool to hear it in its infancy.

Pre-proto-Dead, and so so very cool. There's some debate around the date, but it's on the archive as the Ivar Theater, so what difference does it make! Jerry's voice is soooooo young.

Rippin' and trippin'. It's messy, wild and reckless.... with an edge-of-chaos intensity that can still blow your mind almost 54 years later. ^^Very cool note there about a possible influence on Tom Waits. No doubt about it, he surely heard the Dead in California in their early years. Cool association.
