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!

Ripping version as are most from 70. First half of the tune is the Mickey and Billy Show. Second half is all screaming Garcia leads... Smokes!

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”.

Only drawback to this one is super quiet Pig vocals.
