Morning Dew
April 28, 1971

I'm simply going to agree with previous comments. The source provided sounds excellent. Just listened again; and could def see making the argument that this is the definitive version.
Good Lovin'
April 25, 1971
Fillmore East

I bought the L & G release soon as it was available. This is def part of my fav era. This Good Lovin' is required. The drums, Jerry, Pig, Bobby, the drums, Pig, the drums, This and Lovelight from 8-6-71 Palladium have given me countless hours of listening pleasure. Never gets old, "and" new, subtle nuances continue to reveal themselves. It's like a movie you need to watch numerous times to take everything in fully and put it all together. On L & G at 2 min into Good Lovin' 2; sounds like something Huggy Bear might be jammin' on his boom box in an episode of Starsky & Hutch.

+1 for your response Dannydread. Between "young heads" votes and "saw that show" votes; some "post Pig" versions sit higher than some "Pig versions". Oh well
