Me and My Uncle
Feb. 20, 1971
Capitol Theater

Rarely post on a MAMU, but this one really pops! Super nimble guitar work. Excelent
Drums -> Space
July 4, 1989
Rich Stadium

An inspired drums segment from the Devils and a serviceable space segment. Worth the spin
Crazy Fingers
June 16, 1991
Giants Stadium

Perfect full band gelling in a dramatic end jam portion, leading effortlessly into China > Rider
Greatest Story Ever Told
July 12, 1987
Giants Stadium

Why the dead chose to neuter the peak jam inherent in early incarnations of this song is one of the most perplexing mysteries ever. This is crisp tho
Black Peter

Deer Creek Music Center

This hit me perfectly. Well paced, lyrically nailed the poignancy, peak was driven. Nice late-era Peter


He's Gone
Sept. 3, 1972
Folsom Field, University of Colorado

Gorgeous, with an amazing swell at the end and a flawless transition into a monster TOO. Top shelf
New Potato Caboose
Aug. 24, 1968
Shrine Auditorium

Holy f*ck!! Phil hits an absolute moonshot with this. Completely takes over and guides the band into a purely blissful jam
Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Aug. 24, 1968
Shrine Auditorium

I love the pacing in this. No rush, band is patient and offering turns for each other to shine. Always been a top version, personally. Dusted off again today and still a sweet moseying bluesy dander. Love it
Brown Eyed Women
April 15, 1978
William and Mary College Hall

Definitely worth listening to for the rhythmic oddity. I can't tell whether it was purposeful or just out of sync (I felt like the former, but not certain?). Worth it for something different, if nothing else
Playin' In The Band
April 15, 1978
William and Mary College Hall

Very choice. I felt like this cracked my head open, then patiently melded it back together on a concerted listen.
