Standout version with an extended marimba intro that's a dinosaur stomp if I've ever heard one

Jerry is on point in the first set. Excellent version with mournful vocals, crisp effected guitars, and strong Vince. Recommended!

Beautiful! The pain is there, but Jerry is lucid and feeling it. Flows nicely into Throwing Stones

Excellent mid-80s version. Jerry is very lucid in this show, heartfelt and floaty version.

Love this version. Not jammed out, but incredibly delivered and fun.

they lead into this from space for about 3-4 minutes. A beautiful, gooey transition. This version should be in the dialogue for best versions. I don't care about the flubs, I care about the vibes!

YES -- thank you! listened to this show today and was blown away. Such delicate interplay that leads outward and back inward in amazingly satisfying ways.

excellent end to a standout 85 show where Jerry is incredibly lucid and the band is feeling it.

some very deep zoning, flows nicely into drums space.
