Bobby seems to be so on this night. Everybody seems to be taking his lead so far.

Henry J. Kaiser Auditorium

Incredible late 80's version. First listen to this show, holy crap it's hot!
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
July 26, 1972
Paramount Theater

Heard this last night on the XM Dead Channel. Just classic high energy rock n roll!
Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Oct. 18, 1989
The Spectrum

Incredible duel between Jerry and Brent Jams! There is nothing in this world like that Hammond organ mixed with Jerry's MIDI
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Dec. 19, 1978
State Fairgrounds Coliseum

Jerry takes an energetic Scarlet into a mellow jazzy outro into a smooth transition into Fire then Phil starts raising the energy and the Fire grows..


Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Sept. 2, 1978
Giants Stadium

I had to give this a listen after reading all the other comments, and I have to admit I was sleeping on this one. Maybe because the recording I have is a little fuzzy but, damn, Jerry starts building something with the first Scarlet jam and the boys follow along on the journey, and it is AWESOME! Must listen.
Friend of the Devil
Dec. 31, 1978
Winterland Arena

Great version. Probably my favorite of the Keith & Donna era.
Hard to Handle
Aug. 6, 1971
Hollywood Palladium

Holy Schmokin' Balls! To paraphrase the movie Dazed and Confused, "Don't tell me about no Hard to Handle from 8-6-71, man. Your brain couldn't handle that shit on strong acid."
Midnight Hour
Sept. 3, 1967
Dance Hall

This is Pig at his matchmaking best. "C'mon Bobby, go on down there and dance with that little girl." 10 minutes of him getting people of their asses and into the aisles dancing.
Cumberland Blues
Sept. 20, 1970
Fillmore East

This one is so good, I wish I could vote for it twice.
