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

Absolutely killer! Jerry never ceases to amaze, and this is another example of his brilliance. Some of his licks in this tune manage to be both fire and ice, so passionate yet so slick and clean in their execution. God Bless the Grateful Dead!

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.
