West L.A. Fadeaway
Definite bias here...it's my birthday! Pretty rippin' all things considered. Jerry really seems into it, as does Brent
23
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
This whole show is the Dead at their most energetic and the HSF has some exceptionally fine playing by Jerry. Maybe the best version of the decade!
3
Satisfaction
Hampton magic once again, great Satisfaction from an above average show.
9
Brother Esau
Funkiest version I've heard
11
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
One of the best of the year
3
Franklin's Tower
Right from the starting gate, the boys hit the ground running! If you love Franklin's do yourself a favor and give it a spin!
7
Throwing Stones
Extended and jammy early version had more improvasation than you find in the jamming on later versions.
9
Candyman
Powerful take this night....
4
Brown Eyed Women
With some energy and Jer's got a steady hand here - Brent high and all over this mix...Devils are kickin hard this night too.
2
New Minglewood Blues
Schreddy Version
2
Truckin'
Great ‘83 Truckin’. Spoonful and Smokestack jams at the end..

Looks Like Rain
Brent's moog gives this 1 a bit of dr seuss, devils take a while to check in, but from first solo on, cooks into a thrilling workout!!!
