Memorial Coliseum

Even through the murky recording you can hear how delicate, powerful and trippy this version is. Great jam into drums

Ventura County Fairgrounds

Fun 80s version with a nice middle jam that fizzles out “like a Switch watch” according to Bobby, ends with a gooey jam into drums

This is an adventure, beautiful stuff

The final part of the jam into drums is incredible! Blown away this hasn’t been listed yet
Not Fade Away
Oct. 6, 1977
Activity Center. Arizona State U

The high energy never lets up for a single second until they flawlessly go into the MLB jam, then drop back into the insanity. Completely savage version.
Terrapin Station
May 11, 1980
Cumberland County Civic Center

A red-hot rock n’ roll Terrapin executed with precision and passion. This is a bombastic masterpiece and the best version I’ve come across in ages. As always, listen to the matrix recording and crank it up! The boys were on fire this night.
Black Peter
Dec. 26, 1981
Oakland Auditorium

It’s already such a great Black Peter but then you get this crazy, unique jazzy jam at the end. Unlike any other version.
