Eyes Of The World
This is an amazing piece...it is art. I preferred the 1974 versions until I heard this one. Amazing, thoughtful, articulate.

Althea
Long, patient, mellow version.
9
The Music Never Stopped
Long, long closing jam, major Phil bombs and fiery strumming by both Weir and Garcia, give it a listen. Road Trips No.1 Vol 1 Full Show.
6
Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Out of Space very cool intro..lots of energy then they blow into SugarMag.
4
Passenger
Locked in the pocket Jer decides to murder this one. Sheesh.
5
Pretty Peggy O
Tempo is perfect for Jer's deft touch - close to perfect with everyone contributing thoughtfully. Jer's voice is breaking by the end.
3
Friend of the Devil
Beautiful version that soars in some parts.

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Groovy opening to a great show
2
Cassidy
I've waded through a lot of Cassidys that weren't nearly as good. This one deserves to be on the list. Listen and vote it up the line if you agree!
