Why Don't We Do It In The Road
Nov. 3, 1984
Berkeley Community Theatre

Best one by a long shot. Garcia and Weir sing this one
She Belongs To Me
April 28, 1985
Frost Amphitheatre

One of my favorite Jerry (Dylan) ballads. This one really stands above the rest. Jerry's voice on this could melt a heart of stone.
Shakedown Street
April 16, 1984
Community War Memorial Auditorium

Funky, filthy & monsterous. Little known b/c it's hard to find good sound of this one. Try neumann's on archive.


Eyes Of The World
May 15, 1981
Rutgers Athletic Center

Talk about an underrated Eyes. Literally one of the best of the 80's.
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Sept. 11, 1982
West Palm Beach Auditorium

If Dave ever releases this show it should come with a warning to remove the batts in your smoke detectors before throwing on the Scarlet > Fire. This entire show is a scorcher - one of the best of the early 80's and one of the most underrated (overlooked) shows of all time.
Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Dec. 5, 1981
Market Square Arena

Completely agree with Phil Bombs and prefer this one over 10-10-82.
Morning Dew
Sept. 3, 1988
Capital Centre

As someone who has listened to about 150 different versions I can definitively say that this one is incredibly underrated. Only thing that keeps it from being in the top 10 is that Healy fucked with Jerry's voice at one point. Other than that I LOVE this Morning Dew. Jerry belts this one out it with power and emotion rivaling the Shoreline '89 Death Don't Have No Mercy. Stop reading. Start listening.
Brown Eyed Women
May 16, 1981
Barton Hall - Cornell University

Certainly underrated. This one's a ripper.
