So Many Roads
Sept. 18, 1994
This one should not even be close. While there was a bit a lyrical sloppiness like there was in many SMRs, from 6:20 on this one soars like no other. Garcia takes this one into hyperdrive during the ending vocals that carries into the final jam. Then at the 8:10 mark he breaks into a Duane Allman lick reminiscent of Ramblin' Man that he never played before and never played again and it is amazing! Then the ending reprise "Ease my Soul" at 8:30 are some of the best ever. If you were there, you know that this one was "The One"!
