such a cool version. an under the radar version? i thought this would have a few more votes- based on coolness/interesting factor alone- plus it is well played, in general.
Terrapin Station

my first show. my uncle asked me if i could hear one song what would it be. i said, "Terrapin". Terrapin Station was THE album that turned me onto the Dead. I got it at my first show as a 15 year old kid. mind blown.
