Old In The Way



Hurts Me Too
Oct. 24, 1970
Kiel Opera House

Latest Dave’s Version is solid. Slower than some versions but very bluesy and Pig is at his best

Capitol Theatre

Interesting song and show. Not a good recording and not the best show but worth a listen. Honky Tonk Women? From NFA on, it sounds like the Dead.
Mexicali Blues

The Spectrum

Should be here if Me and My Uncle is. Will get you dancing for sure. Fun

Haunting and beautiful

As good as they played it


Uncle John's Band
Oct. 5, 1994
The Spectrum

Maybe the best 94 show I have heard. Great night for Jerry and the gang, he didn’t need them to cover for him at all, he holds his own and then some. Jack Straw blisters out of the gate and they keep it up. UJB is as good as it gets post 70s.

Bobby sounds great and Jerry rips! Top notch.

Capital Centre

Epic bust out for sure, but musically, this is way too high.
Good Lovin'
Oct. 1, 1977
Paramount Theatre

Wow, strong and fast! One of the best I have heard. This whole show will get more attention now that it is an official release.
Eyes Of The World
June 23, 1990
Autzen Stadium

Fantastic Eyes!! I lost myself into the drums for a while. It felt like being in a drum circle. Jerry has a couple nice sections as does Brent, but this is really about the drums. Only “complaint” if any is that Phil was low in the mix. Maybe this will be fixed on the new Dave’s Pick!
