I typically find the post '72 versions of this song to be a bit of filler, but this one has some nice accents from Keith and some ramp-up ending chaw

Relatively short, given later incarnations, but this one has wonderful energy behind it, deliberate playing, and a delicate finish

The Drums is fine/good, but this one is great to cleary hear some spunion shout "holy fucking, SHIT!" on the SBD. Someone's mind = blown... Priceless

Very inspired playing. Jazzy swing from the rhythm devils, Lesh is barreling down the low end, and Jerry dancing the leads to a powerful conclusion

Hornsby on accordion makes this sound like it could be echoing out of a pub somewhere in Ireland. Jerry's solo is stunning. In some instances, like this, the accordion works. In others, like the subsequent Mexicali Blues, it is painful to endure. This one is lovely.

Sure, Keith and Jerry shine brightly on their solos, but Bobby floored me with some very nuanced, delicate fanning throughout. Choooooice.

Super slinky and slowed down version. Keith especially shines on this track, and throughout the entire show. Highly enjoyable
