Out of St Stephen and into Cosmic Charlie...Nearly 25 minutes...nary a dull moment
Laid-back sweetness comin out of a long fiery Other One...wow
The only one on this list that may be better is 9/18/87 MSG, but this one is subperb.

So intimate, so classic, so beautiful, Jerry's voice is so heart-breakingly gorgeous, and the picking is divine

Nice acoustic version

20Long Black Limousine
Another one from this classic show!
8All New Minglewood Blues
A standout version from a great show.
Another cool acoustic version
17Ain't It Crazy (The Rub)
This is a fun version and Pig is killin' it. Some great Jerry banter immediately after the tune ends... But that's not why I submitted it. Solid!
Great acoustic version. Stellar vocals, especially in the "oooh" section
Acoustic Pigpen...they didn't do this enough. Great moment in a great show.
26New Minglewood Blues
Bob screams his lungs out
21Don't Ease Me In
Fillmore East New York
10Not Fade Away
8Deep Elem Blues
Classic 1970 acoustic version. Excellent Road trips here!
13Hard to Handle
Certainly not number one, but worthy to be listed.
23New Speedway Boogie
This really needs some votes. This one is the goods.
17I Know You Rider
Another great acoustic version from 1970. Alot of heady stuff from these shows.
18Uncle John's Band
Wonderful....needs some votes
awesome . period .
7China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider

In one of the all-time great DSs. Bob just takes over this DS and finally Jerry bites on the Feelin' Groovy theme.
4Me and My Uncle
Country Vibe - Bobby dueting with Dave from NRPS? Nice steel work...
With the NRPS and ridiculously perfect. Perfect vocals and Jerry's '70 pedal steel sound. Amazing.

I hear a voice callin'...
Opens the electric set of the early show
