Something about the Fall '79 extended intro versions that really stands out to me. This one and 12-3 are prime examples of the great country intro

Black Throated Wind

Oakland Auditorium

Ultra rare soundcheck version. Sound quality is terrible, but with a little work, they could have revived it earlier than '90

Positively 4th Street
Dec. 21, 1979
Keystone

Granted it's JGB. But it's 17 1/2 minutes of epic interpretation of Dylan by Jerry. Just when you think it's reached new heights, it goes higher.

The Music Never Stopped

Fox Theatre

The one where Bobby sings "Fish is rising up like birds" in Hot-Lanta Intense jam follows the second verse

If I Had The World To Give
Nov. 20, 1978
Cleveland Music Hall

This is THE version that I would dance to as the first dance at my wedding.
Werewolves of London
April 19, 1978
Veterans Memorial Auditorium

A major cluster****, but nonetheless a fun listen, if only for the length, and the fact that they really hadn't learned the chord progression yet (this goes G-D-C, rather than D-C-G).

Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Jerry going Dylan on the "Till the sun go down" line is classic. Love this rockin version.
Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Dec. 11, 1979
Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall

Love that Sailor/Saint transition; one of a kind. The Estimated outro jam after Saint is a neat touch too.
The Other One
Oct. 27, 1979
Cape Cod Coliseum

I can listen to that Phil bomb at the 1:42 mark of Other One over and over. My speakers shake from the power.
