Sept. 14, 1988
Madison Square Garden
Jerry's shaky vocals are part of this one's charm - the NYC crowd goes nuts over it. The climatic part of Few wasn't very climatic but still great Weir\Garcia interplay in jams! Solid 8.5\10
Nov. 1, 1977
Best version of year and i love Donna but she's got nothing to do with this insane rocker.
Sept. 18, 1974

One of my favorite versions.... Pre-Hiatus Always thought E74 was GDs best work across the Atlantic.
