Still OnThe Bus



June 24, 1970
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
April 26, 1983
The Spectrum

Should be here if Me and My Uncle is. Will get you dancing for sure. Fun
Stella Blue
April 2, 1973
Boston Garden

Haunting and beautiful
Sept. 20, 1988
Madison Square Garden

As good as they played it
The Frozen Logger
Dec. 26, 1970
Legion Stadium

Short and weird like the rest. I prefer slewfoot but kind of fun


Sept. 3, 1988
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!
Fire On The Mountain
Oct. 31, 1980
Radio City Music Hall

I have voted for this and Giza and think they are correctly the top two. I heard both today and for me Giza edges this out for best. This one is peppier though, but the other one just has a better groove and I like Keith on it more than Brent here.
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Dec. 19, 1973
Curtis Hixon Convention Hall

hypnotic ending.
