Sugar Magnolia
Super high energy finish to a wild set. Jerry really takes off down the stretch. (How was this version not listed here earlier??)

Gloria
Bobby's birthday at the world famous Melkeweg. Yummy brownies make this version extra special.
11
Ripple
A very consistent version of a song they had a hard time with live. Better than any Warfield version I've heard.
14
Bird Song
Best Acoustic version I've heard from a lesser appreciated show...Jerry's vocals are spot on and very and some very nice soloing. Tops any Warfield
4
The Wheel
Not the longest, by any stretch, but incredibly airy and beautiful for Bobby's B-day. Worth a listen for sure
7
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
This is a lightening fast bowl of nose clams, played 100x the speed of hyperspace. Worth it just to hear how fast the boys ventured to take this on
3
Black Peter
Smoldering, wicked guitar solos, vocals are haunting and majestic. Emotionally powerful Jerry rings every word for what he can
4
Monkey and the Engineer
Happy Birthday Bobby in Amsterdam! Hell of a show.
2
On The Road Again
Killer version to open this unique show with borrowed instruments.
3
The Race Is On
Absolutely, this acoustic version should be here.
5
Dire Wolf
Acoustic...borrowed istruments...Melkweg!
3
Cassidy
A unique sounding Cassidy. Parts of this almost sound like a studio release of a different band playing like the dead.

Samson and Delilah
This is a nice one from Amsterdam on Bobby's birthday
