Nice 15 plus minute version that rocks but stays focused ,pretty good overall show for the era.

Winterland Arena

Gorgous version from start to finish and another piece of 77 that gives the lie to all the Keith and Donna haters.

Shrine Auditorium

Spectacular version with perfect outro jam just thought to comment on how it should be ranked near the top and am shocked to find it absent.


Cosmic Charlie

Avalon Ballroom

This one really should be up higher ,spectacular version.
Morning Dew

New Potato Caboose
Dec. 7, 1968
Bellarmine College

Great version from a gem of a show in Kentucky
Not Fade Away
Feb. 11, 1970
Fillmore East

Should be much higher up on the list ,one of the better and most eclectic shows of the year .
May 5, 1977

This may be my favorite along with every other one they played in the May of 77 pretty amazing when you consider they did the song for over 20 years.
