A hot, funky "Shakedown" from the Rocky Mountains. 30 Days 2016 version.

Awesome version with Bobby all but blowing his voice out on the screams. On 30 Days of Dead sandwiched between Shakedown and Eyes.

I can't believe I'm the first to submit this. Such a killer segment, especially "Space" with its incredible Spanish jam that's one of the best.

Victim Or The Crime

Charlotte Coliseum

The "Victim / Eyes" combo here is hugely underrated. Out of this world jamming and mammoth versions of both songs.
Eyes Of The World

Capital Centre

Magical version that demands more love. Same with the "Foolish Heart" that follows.
Dark Star

Oakland Coliseum

This one made it to the latest 30 Days so I figured it had to be worth a listen. This is a very good twilight era "Dark Star" with an excellent acid jazz breakdown where Vince especially shines. Not as good 3/20/92, but at 13 minutes it's a lengthy version that gets out there. Coupled with the 12 minute reprise on 12/16 (Dick's Picks 27), you have a good 20 minute of satisfying "Dark Star." Probably the last truly expansive version before 5-7 minute versions became the norm.

This is a great version.

Yea, this one hits the sweet spot. Less intense, "cozy" is indeed the right word. It's like a warm blanket or a cool summer breeze. Love this one.
