From steal your face. This is pure bliss, Jerry's solo does something magic, the drums are pounding, Bob Phil and Keith all on fire!

high energy tight groovy and psychedelic version for sure. This has been one of my favorite brent 2nd set for awhile and I guess i never payed enough attention to this first set. And I agree with what Darkstar67 says about the Dusborn. As a sound engineer myself, I can say he makes some more than amazing matrix's. He puts you right in the sweet spot of the venue.

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.
