Salt Lake City
April 10, 1978
Fox Theatre

Killer sound check. Glad it was played by the boys in 95.
Brown Eyed Women
March 20, 1992
Copps Coliseum

Great flow of this first set with hot version and Bruce doing his thing. Bob especially sounds spot on.
Me and My Uncle
Nov. 2, 1977
Field House - Seneca College

I love this show. This version is hot like the whole show.
Johnny B. Goode
Nov. 6, 1977
Broome County Arena

Appropriate for this barn burner of a show
Stagger Lee
Sept. 16, 1990
Madison Square Garden

This is a great version. Nice lengthy outro by Jer and then Bruce gets going too.


Playin' In The Band
Nov. 15, 1972
Oklahoma City Music Hall

I love revisiting this version every few months. It's so good. I have proven if someone says best ever.
Not Fade Away
June 4, 1978
Campus Stadium - University Of California

Great call guys. It's an angry version. 7/7/78 offers a unique NFA/NFBM, too.
Jack Straw
June 4, 1978
Campus Stadium - University Of California

Yeah...listen to this one!
Not Fade Away
July 31, 1971
Yale Bowl, Yale University

71 had the best NFA>GDTRFB>NFA combos of any year. Great one this day. Includes epic darkness jam in the GDTRFB. This show should not be overlooked.
Dark Star
Nov. 15, 1971
The Austin Municipal Auditorium

This is a great DS with first verse clocking in at 12 minutes with no nonsense. Seamless transition of El Paso and then back into another 7 minutes of DS jam.
