Next Time You See Me
Nov. 7, 1969
Fillmore Auditorium

Jerry and Pigpen sing together in this one, and they brought the passion!
Nov. 8, 1969
Fillmore West

Constanten really adds to the texture of this, exciting feedback!
Oct. 12, 1968
Avalon Ballroom

High intensity, coming in hot after a hot Caboose jam.
Jack Straw
July 9, 1989
Giants Stadium

Powerful version. The vocal entrance at the end brings the house down, you can tell they're having fun; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gjjkcVIoys
Good Lovin'
Oct. 31, 1980
Radio City Music Hall

Bob goes for it in the rap and Garcia smiles a bit. A fun latter day version, though it never jams out like mad. Video of it here! https://www.youtube


Me and My Uncle
Dec. 4, 1971
Felt Forum, Madison Square Garden

Most fiery shuffle-kickin', revolver slingin' MAMU i've heard.
Playin' In The Band
Dec. 12, 1973
Omni Coliseum

You know, when they're through with the verses at the start and reach the end of the final 10/4 beat and the music "drops": This Playin' has one of the best "drops". 1973 has such psychedelic and mellow versions, i never get tired of them.
May 1, 1981
Hampton Coliseum

Instant download. LIG > Deal, what a gem.
Morning Dew
Oct. 12, 1984
Augusta Civic Center

Most powerful vocal performance on this song - bar none.
Dark Star
Nov. 8, 1970
Capitol Theater

Turning into a favorite of mine fast, the Dark Star > Main Ten > Dancin' sequence is killer good. And to be honest, i would still listen to the Lee AUD if there was a SBD available, the AUD quality makes it all the more spacey, mysterious and eerie.
