Long before this song was a 15-minute soloing showcase, Jerry put the gusto into his vocals. This one exemplifies that - the whole band sounds great!

The band hits another gear toward the end, especially after the false ending. I've never heard Billy go as crazy as this before. Great one!

This song was a firestorm in the early Keith era - just listen to him bang those keys here! You can practically see the smoke billowing from his keys.

Holy Phil! This one has some serious muscle behind it, courtesy of Mr. Lesh's thumping bass. The solos ain't bad either!

Explosive, propulsive, a juggernaut of barrelhouse piano and tasty Garcia licks. Just what a Sugar Mags should be.

The Other One
Nov. 10, 1967
Shrine Auditorium

I can't say enough good things about this early one. Different lyrics, a slightly different vibe from later versions, but my GOD is it a spicy performance. Aggressive, manic, and Garcia's tone is as heavy as it ever got. This is how The Other One should be played - pure volume and energy all the way through.

Nice and aggressive - great version coming hot on the heels of a good rendition of The Wheel.

That’s a great way of putting it! I’ve always thought they totally nailed this song when playing it, but could never put my finger on why it was so good. The way you describe it, the magic might just be in the solo! At the very least, that’s what makes this particular version stand out.

"They don't trust me," remarks Bobby after a goofy on-stage discussion about how many bars the jam has. And yet, it's a HOT version with a great jam.

I like how Bobby catches himself here - "New Yor...uh...New England fillies." Yeah, us Heads in Maine aren't sure if Connecticut is in New York or New England either. ;D
