Old Renaissance Faire Grounds

Sure it's only a tease that's aborted for El Paso, but it's Veneta, so it has to be the best!

High energy. Part of a very underrated show.

Melodic and intense, by far my favorite space melts into Stella. Very underrated show.

Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain

Horton Field House - Illinois State University

"Overdoes it" is way too kind. "Ruins it" is closer to the truth with Bobby's slide playing on this one.
Stella Blue

Richfield Coliseum

Did you consider 10/15/89? That one melts out of Space and is my favorite by a country mile.
Eyes Of The World

Evans Field House, Northern Illinois University

I will echo what others have said, this is the best Estimated > Eyes of 77. It's insane that Englishtown has 3x the upvotes. This show is better in every aspect for these songs.
Uncle John's Band

Oakland Auditorium

The only post-Keith version I consider in the same league as this is Augusta 10/12/84 UJB>D/S>Playin' Rep>UJB which is of course followed by the monumental Dew.

The lyric flubs are hard to just ignore. I mean, c'mon, Jer, the album is coming out in a week and you can't get the words right? Musically on point, but it's not like there is a 15 min type 2 MLB jam in it, either.
