Feel Like A Stranger
April 30, 1988
Frost Amphitheatre

Super tight, funky, slinky Stranger, to really get the night moving. HOT
Dark Hollow
Oct. 9, 1980
Warfield Theater

So clean, perfectly executed - acoustic butter
Around and Around
May 4, 1979
Hampton Coliseum

Not usually my song, but this one cranks into hyper speed, with Brent preaching on the organ and Jerry nailing the licks
May 4, 1979
Hampton Coliseum

Not the longest version, but hot with some interesting diversions into different territory than a normal Truckin'. Segues effortlessly into Stella
May 4, 1979
Hampton Coliseum

Fiery version - Jerry is ON. Mothership on hype. Worthy of a focused spin


Dire Wolf
April 15, 1970
Winterland Arena

Love the unexpected segue from cryptical. This second set is pure primal fire
June 14, 1976
Beacon Theatre

Packs a whole lot into 5 min... Tight and pops with energy
Stella Blue
June 11, 1976
Boston Music Hall

Extremely intentional and well-paced playing. Jerry's vocals are perfect
Eyes Of The World
June 11, 1976
Boston Music Hall

^Grendel's comment (per usual) nailed it. I love the loose, flowing '76 versions of Eyes and this one is a perfect example. Beautiful and airy
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
March 30, 1990
Nassau Coliseum

I was very surprised to see the mix in reception for this classic version. Recently respun, twice, and this still holds up fantastically. Super tight Help, explorative Split with some great team jamming, and a triumphant Frank's. Not sure what more you can ask for. This one always has a well-deserved place in my heart.
