Saratoga Performing Arts Center

Jerry's guitar tone and fluttering ramp up solo is spine tingles. Highly recommend!

Capitol Theater

Opens the show with serious energy. Perfect vocals and great balance of tightness, but bouncy playing. This whole first set is super crisp
Me and My Uncle
Feb. 20, 1971
Capitol Theater

Rarely post on a MAMU, but this one really pops! Super nimble guitar work. Excelent
Drums -> Space
July 4, 1989
Rich Stadium

An inspired drums segment from the Devils and a serviceable space segment. Worth the spin
Crazy Fingers
June 16, 1991
Giants Stadium

Perfect full band gelling in a dramatic end jam portion, leading effortlessly into China > Rider


Dire Wolf
Jan. 22, 1978
McArthur Court, U of Oregon

This is my favorite of all the wolves. So crisp and vibrant. This song serves its role as a first set vibe booster in the best possible way. This version is a “glue guy” performance reason why this is an all-time show
Crazy Fingers
June 23, 1990
Autzen Stadium

I love this second set so much. Gorgeous crazy fingers. Fluid and crystalline
May 30, 1971
Winterland Arena

Suuuuper clean version. Bouncy, melodic
Bird Song
March 9, 1981
Madison Square Garden

Gorgeous, floating along like a leaf on the wind
Dark Star
Nov. 2, 1969
Family Dog at the Great Highway

I've been listening to this one a ton since the recent Dave's release. Such a beautiful, multi-thematic, exploratory version. And YES, the feeling > tighten jam is pure dead wizardry
