Fluttering acoustic beauty from the Warfield

Warfield Theater

So glad this tune made the cut for acoustic rotation and new release is fantastic. Great tension build in the jam
June 14, 1984
Red Rocks Amphitheater

Super crisp song portion and tension/release jam segment. Very worthy
Brown Eyed Women
Oct. 25, 1979
New Haven Coliseum

Jerry is crazy nimble in this. Fresh from a 30 days of dead release - a choice cut
Sitting on Top of the World
May 19, 1966
Avalon Ballroom

Short, sweet, but THUMPING


Wharf Rat
April 25, 1977
Capitol Theater

This version is everything. Jerry's licks leading into the jam portion are indelibly etched into my brain. I have no shame in double commenting - this one is one of the absolute tops and deserves dap.
Morning Dew
Feb. 28, 1969
Fillmore West

Show opening, near 12 min version. Raw, powerful and emotive. Love, love, love Jerry’s tone
Turn On Your Love Light
Feb. 28, 1969
Fillmore West

For me, this one is the ONE. Such controlled manic swells, perfectly paced, everyone is nimbly riding an incredible wave of energy. Creativity paired with precision. UnREAL levels of greatness
Cumberland Blues
April 8, 1972
Wembley Empire Pool

Went back to my roots for Jerry week and this screamer has lost on steam or luster after all these years. Keith is an absolute MONSTER on the boards. Speed country rock at its absolute best
The Music Never Stopped
June 7, 1977
Winterland Arena

Never stop, NEVER STOP, NO. Full throttle, shot out of a cannon energy. To shelf heater
