Might As Well
Aug. 15, 1981
Memorial Coliseum

A tad abrupt on the ending but a fun one! They played a mighty swell one the night before so they probably figured 'might as well' play it again
Stagger Lee
Nov. 8, 1987
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Jer Stagg Swag on 100. solo gets hot on the second time around
Pretty Peggy O
Oct. 11, 1984
Civic Center

Jerry plucking the heartstrings like only he can in this rather extended solo
Sept. 12, 1987
Capital Centre

Jerry rips it hard! powerful return to the chorus after guitar solo
Franklin's Tower
May 5, 1990
California State University Dominguez Hills

If you like listening to Jerry play then you'll like this Franklins, straightens out a somewhat sloppy start of the show!


Big Railroad Blues
Oct. 15, 1983
Civic Center

The BIGGEST Railroad Blues!
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Dec. 31, 1977
Winterland Arena

This should be way higher on the list! I always loved how Jerry skips the verse about "aint nothin wrong..." and heads straight into the solo after the classic ascending guitar riff which normally precedes said skipped verse. Perfect ascension into the jam
Stagger Lee
Nov. 8, 1987
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

not at Red Rocks? Pretty sure Henry Kaiser Convention Center, Oakland, CA
To Lay Me Down
Sept. 22, 1988
Madison Sq Garden

This day in history... had to log in to make sure it was represented here!
Crazy Fingers
July 2, 1989
Sullivan Stadium

awesome phrasing by Jerry in his solo
