If you're a fan of post-Terrapin jams, then you need to hear the final 6 minutes of this version.
Uncle John's Band

Hartford Civic Center
Interesting segue from He's Gone into this unfinished version that features some screaming Jerry leads before melting into drums.
Not Fade Away
May 8, 1981
Jerry leads the band into Nobody's Fault territory, and the resulting bluesy jam is brief but satisfying.
April 13, 1984
Long version with an atypical jam featuring Jerry's endless deconstructions over some cool jazz comping from Weir. Into drums.
Let It Grow
Sept. 8, 1988
The jam starts with thunder, then dissipates into near space before building back to thunder. Phil owns this version.
Jan. 11, 1978
Yeah, this should be much higher. This whole tour gets overlooked aside from 1/22.
