An extremely beautiful version. Love Keith's piano on this one. On one of the best Dave's Picks (Vol. 3).

Show opener of the second show of a fantastic MSG run - what could go wrong? Answer: nothing.

Can't believe this one isn't on here! I've always considered the View from the Vault III version to be the best.

One of the all-time great versions of one of the all-time great Dead songs from one of their all-time great second set jams. Everything just falls beautifully into place.

Simply an incredible journey. One of my personal favorite That's It For the Other Ones.

Yeah, this one is kickass! Stumbled upon it by chance - has to be the hottest one I've heard from the Vince era. Not that it rivals Hampton '89 or anything, but it's a powerhouse jam vehicle right out of the gates! Don't underestimate '93...

Come ON!!! Let's be honest here.
