Stunning rendition from Texas in the Fall of '77. Gorgeous harmonies from Donna. Mystic transition into a Playing reprise.
Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again

Henry J. Kaiser Auditorium
Killer. Matches or bests all the '89 versions I've heard.

I'm usually not the biggest fan of the "disco-fied" cowboy songs, but this one delivers the goods. Of course it's from Texas.
Samson and Delilah
Nov. 1, 1985
"It's got to be funky!" Dick's Picks 21 - absolutely explosive! A must-hear.
New Minglewood Blues
May 6, 1978
Patrick Gymnasium - University of Vermont
Bobby imitates a lion's roar every time he sings the "lion's den" lyric! Raging, ferocious, and full of that late '70s swagger.

One of the all-time great versions of one of the all-time great Dead songs from one of their all-time great second set jams. Everything just falls beautifully into place.
The Other One
Oct. 22, 1971
Simply an incredible journey. One of my personal favorite That's It For the Other Ones.
Feel Like A Stranger
June 26, 1993
Yeah, this one is kickass! Stumbled upon it by chance - has to be the hottest one I've heard from the Vince era. Not that it rivals Hampton '89 or anything, but it's a powerhouse jam vehicle right out of the gates! Don't underestimate '93...
