Turn On Your Love Light

Honolulu Civic Auditorium

Another great 1970 Lovelight, if you don’t know this show, spin it. Very mellow island vibe, great Lovelight to close.

Turn On Your Love Light

The Warehouse

Very surprised this one is not listed, 38 Mins, one of the longest. Jerry slide solos, Peter Green wailing, and of course Pigpen at his peak.

The Eleven

Oregon State University

The classic Live Dead sequence with my new favorite “The Eleven”, just a little more controlled, in a laid back, non-frenzied pace. Give it a listen.

Surprised this version is not on the list the classic Live Dead sequence all very well played. This 20 min. DS has a short early Feeling Groovy Jam.

Darkness Jam

Santa Rosa Fairgrounds

Also out of GDTR, (which is very mellow), this is a very nice, (again short), Darkness Jam. I just love this melody.

Not a monster, length wide, but is it very intense. This whole show is very good.

This is an absolutely GREAT version, the softness, the power, Jerry’s slide in the 1st solo, the vocal’s “Run, Run and see”, the final jam, all outstanding.
Might As Well

Evans Field House, Northern Illinois University

Blazing start to the set, there are a few Might as Well’s from the Fall 77’ tour that are outstanding , Cobo Arena & Seneca but his once stands out as the best. You can see Jerry’s smile as he belts out the refrain, I just LOVE it.
Eyes Of The World
