Beautiful early version, but this is excellent, tight vocals has the sweet Susie thrown in like most of the great ones. Cool keyboard sound

Extremely High energy post space slot coming out of a nice spanish jam. Jerry playing in full on Jedi mode.

Slow and funky with a lot of note bends like all good Althea's. A real cool mellow pace allows the funk to develop smoothly.

Another great Carrion Crow Rec. This one is magic as is the new box set. Another treat from Brother Lemieux to us.
Sept. 26, 1980
Warfield Theater

This is the definitive Ripple, just pure beauty and there's a reason they chose it for the record. Beautiful passionate delivery and played to perfection. One of those few tunes better wooden than electric in my humble opinion.

Grand Center

Just heard this for the first time and i must say it lives up to the hype
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Aug. 10, 1982

Wow this one is magnificent Jerry giving every word that extra little something and the playing is absolutely breath taking. They do Dylan very proud with this version. Great double encore teamed with a rocking JB Goode.
Mission in the Rain
June 29, 1976
Auditorium Theatre

This one may actually be even better thn the masterpiece from the 12th. This is simply due to some amazing playing by Keith Godchaux. Jerry also plays a truly transcendent brilliant solo.
