My lord! This mexicali is insane!! If you doubt the power of the cowboy tunes listen to this Wall of Sound beauty!!!

Kings Beach Bowl
Dick's Picks 22 anyone?? 68 tone is honestly incredible, and this is a perfect example
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Feb. 14, 1970
How is this not here?? Dicks picks 4... a classic primal china>rider no doubt.

Grate version... listen carefully at the beginning you can hear Jerry yell "put your acid in!"
Weather Report Suite
June 28, 1974
This is one of the best Grateful Dead jams I've ever heard. The entire WRS > Jam > U.S. Blues sequence is probably one of the best things they ever played.
Black Throated Wind

Old Renaissance Faire Grounds
An excellent rendition no doubt, but 9/21/72 is the best
Big Railroad Blues
Sept. 2, 1983
Boise Pavilion - Boise State University
Sounds like copious amounts of cocaine. I assume this will be upvoted when the Dave's Picks comes out, but it doesn't do it for me, it's quite sloppy. Give me Europe 72
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower

DeadHead21 and I tend to see things eye to eye :) this is not as good as any 70s version of course...
Pretty Peggy O

This show is so painfully overrated. 5/5/77 smokes this
