From the rumble of Phil's tremendous opening to Bob's Healy-spun vox, this is a fun one.

I am genuinely shocked this isn't listed here as of June '20! Coming off a hot Jack Straw, the sound is big and energetic. Could do without accordion.

When Jerry brings his flute to the second jam section, he lays down a pretty sweet solo.

I love the explosion at 16 minutes, the cacophony that it is. And I am curious after 9 minutes, is that Ned? Or is it Keith? There's an 'essay' on what's called the Grateful Dead Guide, and it states, "The nedbase site conclusively shows that it was Keith (who was unusually adventurous that day) - Ned wasn't there."- something to ponder. Regardless, it's a nice exploration. Not a fan of the high-pitched noise around 22 minutes, though.
