This was an isolated show and it sure sounds that way. Rock n rock and rock and roll here baby!

Rocking version from a killer tour. Check it out!

Madison Square Garden

Jerry's shaky vocals are part of this one's charm - the NYC crowd goes nuts over it. The climatic part of Few wasn't very climatic but still great Weir\Garcia interplay in jams! Solid 8.5\10

Best version of year and i love Donna but she's got nothing to do with this insane rocker.

One of my favorite versions.... Pre-Hiatus Always thought E74 was GDs best work across the Atlantic.
