i think this version hasn't been acknowledged yet. wonder why. starts out pretty slow but gets hotter and hotter till we cross the rio grandio and the jams are beautiful. and after it ends Bobby introduces the song they never played again called electric springtime.

the video of this show is indeed somewhat of a holy grail. It packs a more complete punch than the already amazing sounding cassettes that have been around for so long and it really gives you the feeling of being right there while it was happening. Bobby battling against Jerry's morning dew effort comes up in reviews on just about every source of this date on any site and is definitely a special thing in and of itself. All that aside, this version of El Paso, (and about half of all songs they played this day) were played with a magic touch that happened every so often and leaves us all in agreement that there is nothing like a grateful dead concert. This is, as they did so often, as good as it gets.
