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
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)

A scorcher, love the energy on this one, really swingin'!
One More Saturday Night

So, so tight! Holy shit! Spontanius combustion in the later half of this, my god. The video only makes it better!
Turn On Your Love Light
Nov. 15, 1969
Downright TRIBAL! If this had better sound quality it would be considered one of the best of '69. Helluva ride, clocking in at 42 minutes. Spin it!

I agree gwelch, this is note-perfect, and always sets the mood. Bobs voice isn't too bad here either.

What i would do to listen to this live.
Good Morning Little Schoolgirl

Tight and controlled, '68 was too good for words

Philadelphia Civic Center
For this one, i'd go with the AUD. When the crowd realises it's the Dew, they cheer; and it's beautiful.
Death Don't Have No Mercy

Love the slowing down in tempo from a raging Eleven. The echo of the Shrine Auditorium really makes each notes of Jerrys guitar sting you. But in a good way.
