Surprised this ones not already here, as this show is a gem. Alaska on the longest day of the year, and a beautiful way to send the fans into the lite

Tenn Jed #2 for Nashville in '78, first being 4/22. Which is better? You decide. This one is hard to top tho.

I've posted my share of '76ers here, yet somehow not this one, a go-to version for me. Amazing vid on YT, also. Super Phil-heavy

Bignoze, maybe it's the recording? The AUD recording on archive is insane and full of an energy that carries me away. Maybe that's what does it, who knows? Give it a shot on archive tho.

Cassell Coliseum - Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
Goosebumps without a doubt. Absolutely a go-to for me. Run, Run And SEE! Words simply cannot do this bad boy justice. My vote for #1.

Field House - Seneca College
Intense doesn't even do it justice. Face-melting is getting there...Notice the oddball Phil request for Mr. Sandoz D. Laudid backstage right before the song. Definitely kick-ass and one of the few best Estimateds out there.

I have come around on the notion that the El Paso is a nice weird turn, or as one post said, a nice Prankster moment. And, yeah, maybe the world would've ended if they had gone into Dew, so that's a good thing. By extension, one might say, the Pranksters saved the world.

And who could argue with the guy? "anything" they played in that glorious year was worth a listen
