I Fought The Law

After the best SOTM ever, Jerry comes out for this wretched encore.. but the first minute or so never fails to put smile on my face.Ultimate version.

In the middle of a drums/space then into a great spanish jam. some fine dead moments here
Queen Jane Approximately

Suprised I was actually able to find the best version. Don't believe me? Listen to it. Everyone is tight here. Builds up like no other version.

Hampton Coliseum

Not one version of this on here? Bobby sings the dylan tune quite well. Deserves some votes.

Cassell Coliseum - Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Overlooked because of magical black peter to come but the band gives it it all on this one. cant believe its not here.
