Pretty Peggy O
Dec. 12, 1978
Jai-Alai Fronton

I truly believe this one is worthy of a listen and a vote -the syncopated (?) style of march is really cool and yup I promise if you are a Peggy-O fan this one will not disappoint you. This one might be a smidge faster (Hey Miami!) than others but it's really full of wonderful musicianship by all players if you listen closely. There also more alot of tasty nuggets at this show to explore too. Sbd.
Looks Like Rain

Just to be clear this version reminds any listener why the band wanted Donna singing and oh yeah her piana’ playin husband too.
Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again
Oct. 16, 1989

This one is pretty and polished - for an early banger with Bobby straightup imitating Dylan check out 4/7/88 - loose and hairy but tons’o’fun.
Terrapin Station
March 24, 1987
Hampton Coliseum

Just saw a video clip and the part where the crowd goes banannas in the outro was prompted by Jerry mimicking Bobby’s 2step and strum style - if ya know it ya know it - funny and awesome.
