Talk about a sleeper...along with the "PITB" before it, this is probably the last time the Grateful Dead really went the distance in terms of jamming.

Searing work from Brent in a typically strong 1989 version. Surprised this was represented from a legendary show.

Creepy crawly version with lots of different themes and moods just like all good Spaces.

Not exceptionally long but still a very good version. Phil's great here.

Epic version that doesn't quit. The Aiko -> Mona is 25 minutes of Bruce era Dead at its absolute best.

This really needs more love thrown its way. If it hadn't been posted only fairly recently it would probably get more love. One of their best post-Brent excursions.

This really is an awesome version. The transition is nice and long, they don't rush it and everyone's doing their part and succeeding. I forgot how thick Phil is on the soundboards from these shows.
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain

Hartford Civic Center

10/14 is a good date for history book quality "Scarlet -> Fire"'s. This one is swimming in precision, power, creativity and groove.

You bet your ass I'm listening to this today. 25 years since this bad boy was unleashed on NYC. It never gets tiresome for me.
