Great execution and wow, what great peaks in this one! Listen to the crowd go nuts throughout this AUD. Gotta love '81! :)
They Love Each Other
Oct. 8, 1981
Forum Theater

I just can't get enough of '81 audience tapes, and shows like this are exactly why. This TLEO really smokes! Everyone is on fire!!
Estimated Prophet
Feb. 25, 1990
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

At the end of this one, Jerry's adding a generous portion of MIDI ingredients to a tasty Estimated Prophet sauce.
Take A Step Back
April 17, 1984
Niagara Falls Convention Center

A dark, echoey recommendation to step back before dropping into Help>Slipknot>Franklin's
Its All Over Now
April 3, 1987
The Centrum

Blistering, high speed ENERGY! Almost feels like a different song with this tempo, but by far my favorite version. This whole show is insane.


May 22, 1977
The Sportatorium

Her voice actually sounds rather pretty in this version.
Promised Land
Dec. 31, 1987
Oakland Coliseum Arena

What a real shame, and a head-scratcher, that they edited this out of the concert DVD... This one smokes!
Feel Like A Stranger
Oct. 9, 1989
Hampton Coliseum

Always been my favorite version. What a way to start off a show and the rest of the show is great as well.
Picasso Moon
March 26, 1990
Knickerbocker Arena

Nearly flawless... better than 10/16/89. Better than all of them.
Jack A Roe
June 8, 1977
Winterland Arena

Extra oomph on the inspiration meter right here
