Turn On Your Love Light

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.

Winterland Arena

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”.

Thelma Theater

Phil just bombs the shit out of this one!
Feb. 14, 1968

Only drawback to this one is super quiet Pig vocals.
