Best tangled up in Blue ever. Inredibly high energy and fusion among the band.

Great version but not the best. Eaton turned me on to the best version ever but I can't find it. Jerry almost loses a lung after he comes back in after the solo. BTW, this version is way better than the one that the link for archive sends you to: https://archive.org/details/gd1990-03-24.127119.mtx.dusborne.flac16/gd90-03-24s1t07.flac

I'm not convinced yet. I like it when they take the end of the song and speed it up as fast as they can go. This version doesn't do that. The sound quality is phenomenal; maybe that is influencing things. edit: omg... listen to the 10-28-77 version. can't make up my mind.

For me, not only the best version, one of the most sacred, prayer-like moments in GD history. A testament to the spiritual power of LSD.

I came here just to make sure this was on top. Obviously the hottest version ever. Raw and intense.

Here is the link to the version: https://youtu.be/1p5yzz8g3Do?t=1h51m49s Yes, it's JGB, but sill the best that I've found. The jam at the end is on fire.
