They Love Each Other
Oct. 8, 1981
I just can't get enough of '81 audience tapes, and shows like this are exactly why. This TLEO really smokes! Everyone is on fire!!

Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum
At the end of this one, Jerry's adding a generous portion of MIDI ingredients to a tasty Estimated Prophet sauce.
Take A Step Back
April 17, 1984
Niagara Falls Convention Center
A dark, echoey recommendation to step back before dropping into Help>Slipknot>Franklin's
Its All Over Now
April 3, 1987
Blistering, high speed ENERGY! Almost feels like a different song with this tempo, but by far my favorite version. This whole show is insane.
Oct. 19, 1989
Very powerful vocals from Bobby! SOLID!!!! then it gets nice and spacey/experimental before dissolving into a fairly energetic latter-years Eyes

Her voice actually sounds rather pretty in this version.
Dec. 31, 1987
Oakland Coliseum Arena
What a real shame, and a head-scratcher, that they edited this out of the concert DVD... This one smokes!
Feel Like A Stranger
Oct. 9, 1989
Always been my favorite version. What a way to start off a show and the rest of the show is great as well.
March 26, 1990
Nearly flawless... better than 10/16/89. Better than all of them.
