Forceful and confident, with rowdy playing from Bobby and Brent in particular.

Deal
Sept. 14, 1974
Olympiahalle

The first several songs of the show are AUD only, but the performances, as in this Deal, are note perfect.

Olympiahalle

As hot as the other blazing Jack Straws from late ’74. Don’t miss out on these wild first set performances.

@TheBusCameBy and others -- you can vote for 3/18/91 songs at the following link: http://headyversion.com/show/2079/grateful-dead/1991-03-18/ There's a bug on this site that makes it difficult to find a lot of submissions when scrolling through the song pages. It sometimes takes some patience to land on a show page.

Winterland Arena

I am amazed this gorgeous reading from a popular show only has one vote when I got here. Well, now it has two.

Very cool and different jam — kind of like one of the grooves on In a Silent Way — in the few minutes before > Iko.

This Drums > JAM > Space is like no other D>S I’ve heard.
Mexicali Blues

Olympiahalle

This is one of the fastest Dead performances, of any song, I've ever heard -- and it never falls apart! It might be uncomfortably fast for some, but man, this just zips.
