BEST 1 PERIOD
77Looks Like Rain
Weir literally cries...check it out
70Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Simply the best Sailor>Saint ever.
Maybe not "greatest" but an interesting discordant sort of jam makes this early version worth a listen
Perfect wind up, pitch & strike down the middle. I've yet to hear a better one, though I'll try some of the recs here. Til then.....
Weir: "We know we aint gonna get no satisfaction but we're gonna give it a try...You can scream& twist & beg & cry!"
40It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Jerry in especially soulful voice on this completely perfecto version from one of the best shows of '82. If you like 4-6 Spectrum, you'll love this.
12All New Minglewood Blues
The show starts with a killer New Minglewood Blues.
15Playin' In The Band
A standout version from a great show.
18Far From Me
7New Minglewood Blues
A keeper with Phil playing a cool bass line.
What the fuck you gonna do now?
Even the "Drums" from this show is a step-above, and > "Wheel."
Emerges delicately from "Drums."
Quick tempo and nice bounce, with some great band support under Jerry's triplet ideas during the solo.
13Little Red Rooster
Highlights for me were Bobby's voice bouncing around the hall and Jerry's super sweet tone.
