Peppy upbeat version with Dylan on acoustic and it appears backing vocals on the video but you can not hear him in the mix. Fun version.

Jerry is on FIRE! Bob Dylan is fairly clear vocally this is a FUN version. maybe the best from their whole 1987 tour together. Jerry is so into this.Ligntning Garcia Leads. Bobby is playing his heart out as well and phil and the drummers are cooking along. This is GREAT hot stuff! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m92FGd4tAhY&t=30s
