I Know You Rider
May 1, 1970
Alfred College

One of the best acoustic versions. Fun fact: this song uses basically the same chords as Morning Dew, and you can hear the similarities during this slower acoustic versions.

China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider

St. Paul Auditorium

China Cat very good not great, until that country rock rainbow appears at the end. Rider is phenomenal, dig Jerry's lines ca. 45 seconds in.

I'd agree that none of the performances individually is an all-timer, but the transitions are something else entirely. complete Oneness.
Dancin' in the Streets

Cassell Coliseum - Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

This year's very hit or miss for me, but when it works, it works. Good playing from all involved, I especially liked Bobby's record scratch-strumming.
