Brother Esau
Wow, the 1984-07-15 is a close one but this is still my all time favorite.
Hot upbeat version from an awesome show, excellant sound quality the boys were on that night and so was the sound crew.
Cumberland Blues
good version, can't believe it's wasn't already on here, check out Phil's bass lines from the beginning.
Estimated Prophet
Yes, 1986. Surprised myself, but this is just about Exactly Perfect, and only 2 weeks after Jerry's return. Segues right into a great Eyes.
Aiko Aiko
Aiko Aiko into a hot smoldering women are smarter obviously the perfect pairing with such a similar sound.
Man Smart, Woman Smarter
With the Neville Brothers. Excellent little guitar duel between jerry and Brian Stoltzof the Nevilles and Funky Meters. Very cool version
When Push Comes to Shove
Sing it, Jerry!!!
Beat it on Down The Line
Beat it on Thirty Times Down the Line. (the reaction to this on the AUD is epic!)
Greatest Story Ever Told
Solid version of this tune. Less of a trainwreck when played later in the set it seems.
Ship of Fools
Guitar solo and Jerry's voice. WOW
Eyes Of The World
Highly enjoyable with a nice tempo and great energy. Some will be surprised by how good this version is.
