Great acoustic version. Stellar vocals, especially in the "oooh" section

I really can't believe no one has submitted this show. Ethereal playing. Stunning sound quality. Start at "Me & My Uncle" and don't stop, trust me..

Ethereal second set opener. I can't believe no one has listed this awesome version from an EPIC show!! Vocals are heart-wrenching.. Sound is perfect.

Listen to Dave's Picks 2 recording on good audio equipment. This has become one of my absolute favorite Jack Straws. PURE WALL OF SOUND PHIL BOMBS. The whole band sounds connected at the brain the whole show. Really energetic, flowing, and beautiful.

Compared to the versions I have heard, this one takes the cake in every category. So ethereal.. the emotion is palpable.I'm hooked on these Europe 72 recordings! the end of the Pigpen era was a truly beautiful one for the Dead, worth every penny

Love when they nail the "ooh" section! Great version

Tivolis Koncertsal

They played Chinatown Shuffle at 20 out of 22 shows from the Europe '72 tour and I feel any version could be chosen as "the best" ... each one I have listened to is as tight as the next. They were on point.
