I love life



I Fought The Law
Aug. 21, 1993
Autzen Stadium - University of Oregon

After the best SOTM ever, Jerry comes out for this wretched encore.. but the first minute or so never fails to put smile on my face.Ultimate version.
Close Encounters Jam
Sept. 20, 1982
Madison Square Garden

In the middle of a drums/space then into a great spanish jam. some fine dead moments here
Queen Jane Approximately
Aug. 17, 1989
Greek Theatre, U. Of California

Suprised I was actually able to find the best version. Don't believe me? Listen to it. Everyone is tight here. Builds up like no other version.
Ballad of a Thin Man
March 27, 1988
Hampton Coliseum

Not one version of this on here? Bobby sings the dylan tune quite well. Deserves some votes.
Ship of Fools
April 14, 1978
Cassell Coliseum - Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Overlooked because of magical black peter to come but the band gives it it all on this one. cant believe its not here.


Aug. 25, 1975
Berkeley Community Theater

Show doesn't exist
Standing On The Moon
Aug. 21, 1993
Autzen Stadium - University of Oregon

This version just goes down as one of those must hear Jerry moments. This song crashes at the end with so much energy. By far the best, no question
Franklin's Tower
Feb. 26, 1977
Swing Auditorium

Not on the list because its included with help and slip, which is on there. stellar version tho
Around and Around
Nov. 22, 1972
Austin Municipal Auditorium

stumbled across this show the other day and added the black throated wind cuz i thought it was too good to not be there.. but this is even better! great show!
Sugar Magnolia
Nov. 17, 1973
Pauley Pavilion - University of California

My personal favorite. This one is awesome and Donna and Bob just completely in sync
