Big River
June 17, 1975
Winterland Arena

Loving the Kevin Tobin matrix version of this show. This is a crazy good Big River with some wonderful Keith soloing to boot..

Please give this one some love! Great jamming beginning around the nine minute mark... Astounding how many hidden gems there are in the GD live canon.

Love it! Garcia's solo and fills are ridiculously good.

This proves how astoundingly good this band was. That a version as sublime and near perfect as this one sits with only 8 votes. It can easily blow the doors of the top vote getters. There are so many hidden gems in the Grateful Dead live recorded canon - it behooves us all to keep listening to different versions we may have overlooked.

Can't believe this has not yet been posted. Jerry's having fun with his new toy - the Tiger. It's second show in, and it sounds marvelous on this 1st set Franklin's...I'm loving listening to all these early Tiger shows...
