Very tasty Spanish jam out of space running seamlessly into TOO> GDTRFB>Dew. Great second set !

Magic in Saratoga! You can tell when Jerry chips in on the refrain, he's having a good old time.

VERY laid back version with subdued guitar work letting Keith and Phil shine through.Not sure I've heard another like this.

Great Jerry/Brent interplay. This whole damn show smokes if you can get past the lack of a SBD. The Huston/Miller remaster ain't too shabby.

Not as Brentalicious as some 80's versions but Jerry's tapped into some serious cosmic energy here. A personal favorite.

Double post due to malfunctioning mouse.........which I'll replace one of these days ;)
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider

This really is an EPIC China-Rider. The Rider transition starts about 4 and a half minutes into China and that's where the magic kicks up a notch. If you can listen with seamless playback, we've basically got an 11+ minute IKYR jam here.
Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Oct. 10, 1982
Frost Amphitheatre

Never used to be a Sailor>Saint fan until this show. Far as I can tell, the trio of Crazy Fingers>Sailor>Saint, happened only twice, with this being the first and (imo) best. Pity it didn't happen more often because it worked fantastically here....here.

Nice early Deal and A big +1 for sending me back to the Bowl to discover that a SBD's been posted for this historic show!
