Wow - I would say simply that Jerry sounds "free" here, not tied to the melody but full of ideas from the next room where he is on his own imaginative trip separate from but still attached to the band - ya know? Graverobber hears it to...once heard hard to deny a vote check it and see this one deserves some attention. 2nd listen - beautifully familiar and unfamiliar at the same...makes this one special.
The Other One

This collectively (with the CE) is easily one of the top 10 versions of this combination. Absolutely mind melding molten lava Jerry Silver Surferdom with Owsley glitches galore -note in particular 3:52-4:20 followed by Bob's next line "when I woke up this morning my head was not intact!" GTFO with such perfect timing. They panel this version from one end to the other take the ride and see - worthy of a listening and I think hard to deny your vote if heard. Protip turn this jawn up to 11. 1st version in top 10? it's well worth considering - ancient acid drenched roots of audio brownbrown.... oops I see I've commented on this before I guess I really like this one....hahah.
