Super clean version with hefty rhythm. Very crankable.

Rippin stellar version. I like this one a little better than the 72-04-14, which is a close second.

This one's on fire... thought for sure it would be here already. Blistering Jerry.

I can't believe this wasn't on the list... around the 16 minute is some of the most epic crazy jamming ever!

also a big moment for Jerry on the solo. Sounds great through the Wall. love this version.

I was surprised also to not find this one more near the top. The jam is just off the hook crazy with the Wall goin' all kindsa nuts. Needs to be listened to loudly in headphones to really appreciate... not a "casual" version of the tune.

With a cherry on top jam that goes way over the top. Not to mention the incredible stereophonics goin' on with the wall of sound. If I could give a super +1 I would, but instead I'll just give a regular +1.

This one should be nearer the top. An amazing performance.
