Honorable mention on the old dead clubhouse page, but not on here. There's a youtube video with great sound. See for yourself.

A unique sounding Cassidy. Parts of this almost sound like a studio release of a different band playing like the dead.

MSG Scarlet Fire from the Fall of '82 - great transition.

The last halfstep of '76. After Rio Grandeo everyone including the crowd gets into it. The source is a B+ AUD.

Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Dec. 27, 1978
Golden Hall, Community Concourse

I can't find a CM source for this one cucamonga. I've been listening to the darst sbd which has two patches during the rio grandeo section that are a bit of a letdown. But the solos during the halfstep portion - particularly the first one - are played much harder than say any of the '77s. The first solo is something else.

This is my version right now. Crisp and clear, but loud and almost violent at times.
Not Fade Away
Oct. 6, 1977
Activity Center. Arizona State U

This probably should be one of the top versions of this song on here, but it's kind of hidden away by the weird transmission problem that Grendel is talking about. It's a nice find.
Feelin' Groovy Jam
May 25, 1974
Campus Stadium, UCSB

It's a rapid Feelin' Groovy and the burn on Mexicalis and MAMUs is warranted.
