Not my favorite song but an excellent version. Bobby rocks out.


I've Been All Around This World
Dec. 6, 1980
Mill Valley Recreation Center

I have been to the Mill Valley Rec Center. I brought my daughter there when she was a toddler as they used to do free events for kids. I only mention this because I can't imagine seeing a Dead show there. It must have been amazing. This is very small venue, maybe it would hold a couple hundred if pretty packed. This song is always great and this is no exception. 9 votes? Where is the love for one of their best acoustic covers. I love the 1970 and 1980 acoustic shows. I only wish they had expanded the set list a bit, but there is a lot of good solo Jerry acoustic stuff available.

Amazing. I love the groove. Not 8/13/75 but definitely a top version. Great energy and well played.
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo

Hofheinz Pavilion

Just listened for the first time in a long time. Since I would have listened on cassette. This is an excellent version. It doesn’t have the peaks of some of the other 77 versions and not quite as smooth as the 73 versions but definitely solid. The last few minutes of this may be unmatched.

The Spectrum

I haven’t heard this yet. Will take a listen. I don’t have Road Trips but can download the torrent.

Should be higher. I was at 2 shows with a higher version and this is better.
