Some alternate lyrics here? Great version though, Jerry's vocals are on point

Great second set version after a 45 minute jam and emotive China Doll.

Major screw-up of the lyrics here, Pig tries to make up for it and then Jerry just steals the show. I can dig.

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
May 26, 1973
Kezar Stadium

Just came here to make an observation: China>Rider is definitely one of my favorite Dead "songs" and while this is a very good version, I really don't think it's upper echelon and am not a big fan of the Feelin Groovy jam in this one. That being said, reading the above comments just makes me appreciate the multitude of different things Deadheads can take out of the music! Different strokes for different folks, and at the end of the day it's all love here for the most beautiful music in the world. (my personal fav is 6/22/74 if you're curious)

This is such a great and underplayed song IMO, so catchy just wish they played it more. Donna knocks it out of the park!

Probably best of the tour....They let it all out after the incredible segue that makes up the majority of the set
