Sept. 18, 1987
Madison Square Garden
I walked out of this show at the conclusion of Morning Dew. It was a phenomenal performance of the song. But there are a least a dozen better Dew's! Every Morning Dew from the Europe '72 tour blows this one away!

Certainly the best performance of Caution. This version was included in the bonus disc that accompanied the Fillmore '69 Box. I would give anything to hear the rest of this show in vault reel quality!
