This should be on the map. Follow it to find the treasure!

Alert! This one not a throw-away. The best one of '74, no foolin'. Played with a perfect balance of gusto, gumption & grit.

A charged version that starts off a triple-thread run for this massive second set.

It swings to a funky swagger; Jerry is in top form here. I think it's the best Deal from the spring '73 tour!

Goes the distance. Allow me to recommend the Dave Usborne Matrix.

Another great version, criminally overlooked. I enjoy the footage snips of this show, particularly the U.S. Blues for the Jerry "Pete Townshend" windmills. But this Eyes should be higher on the list for sure. So should the version from 10/17/78, but it's not even nominated yet! Guess I'll have to remedy that...

Indeed, 'grendel'. Glad to see another head acknowledge the May '77 = April '78 comparison. Those two months alone offer up a whole plethora of splendid music, no doubt!

Oh yeah, the best one from '74, and the last great one before the hiatus. There were some great ones in later years, but I think the one this night was the swan song.

Love how Bobby delivers this one with a sense of urgency.
