Way To Go Home
June 28, 1992
Deer Creek Music Center

The one Vince song I dig. This performance is super-solid. Make sure to listen to Jerry's solo. Something kicked him in the ass- it's a rager!
Bird Song
Dec. 9, 1989
Great Western LA Forum

Surprised the Without A Net version gets no love here. This one has always been one of my favorites, and I go back to it often!
Good Lovin'
May 6, 1981
Nassau Coliseum

A very solid, all-around well-played version. This definitely needs more love!
Wharf Rat
Feb. 27, 1981
Uptown Theater

Off of one of Dick's leaked tapes. Wow, great version. There's a nice, clean copy on archive- check it out!
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Dec. 12, 1980
Swing Auditorium

Total sleeper!!!! I came across this version by accident. Good god man- everything about this is perfect! Mountain Jam taboot. LISTEN NOW! Damn...


Terrapin Station
Oct. 22, 1983
Carrier Dome, Syracuse U

Solid. I'm all about the underdog, +1.
Playin' In The Band

Old Renaissance Faire Grounds

Glad to see this show (and movie) finally getting released! (Called Sunshine Daydream, if you didn't already know.)
Visions of Johanna
March 18, 1995
The Spectrum

Great version. Released on Fallout From The Phil Zone.
Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
May 12, 1977
Auditorium Theatre

btw- an amazing soundboard of some of this show (1 CD's worth) was released as a bonus disc with the Winterland '77 box pre-order. That's where I first heard this killer 1/2 Step.
April 2, 1995
The Pyramid

Agreed, clarson!
