Love in the Afternoon

So good...Donna and Maria cooing while Garcia just fills perfectly
Touch of Grey
Oct. 14, 1988
Why we love this band. Every little new nuance in each version. Love the way Garcia sings, "Oh well the Touch of Grey.." and the way he pronounces it.

Trippy underwater solo like the 2/24/73 version. Only a couple months away and the resurrection of this tune starting up.

About as fine as a version you'll get. This one is absolutely soaring. 3/20/77 second solo like. I mean just listen. It's inspired big time!

Holy Fuck! The energy in this one. Post drums...HOT DAMN! If Soundbord existed for this one it would be numero uno. Hands down...the Ken and Judy Lee version is the one to sample. MAN!!!

This show is in your face. Garcia's leads are screaming throughout the whole gig. This is what heavy metal was before heavy metal. He attacks the audience.

I remember probably 15 years ago pulled up into the Safeway parking lot in North Boulder and had this cranking. Got out of the car and a lady next to me had a huge smile on her face getting into her car groceries in hand and said “they don’t do it like that anymore”.
