Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
July 18, 1976
Orpheum Theater

This version is tight. Nice pre-Rio Grande grove and super solid outro. Great tone for Jer and Keith is great.
Brown Eyed Women
Feb. 5, 1978
Uni Dome, U of Northern Iowa

Spectacular tone from Wolf
Sugar Magnolia

Academy of Music

This second set is ridiculous and just keeps coming at you...super clean bright.
The Seven
Sept. 29, 1969
Cafe au Go-Go

An absolute monster version of this killer jam.
Nobody's Fault But Mine
July 7, 1978
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

More than half of this NFA is actually NFBM jam and a killer one at that. At times tough to differentiate the 2 tunes.


Playin' In The Band
Nov. 15, 1972
Oklahoma City Music Hall

I love revisiting this version every few months. It's so good. I have proven if someone says best ever.
Not Fade Away
June 4, 1978
Campus Stadium - University Of California

Great call guys. It's an angry version. 7/7/78 offers a unique NFA/NFBM, too.
Jack Straw

Campus Stadium - University Of California

Yeah...listen to this one!
Not Fade Away
July 31, 1971
Yale Bowl, Yale University

71 had the best NFA>GDTRFB>NFA combos of any year. Great one this day. Includes epic darkness jam in the GDTRFB. This show should not be overlooked.
Dark Star
Nov. 15, 1971
The Austin Municipal Auditorium

This is a great DS with first verse clocking in at 12 minutes with no nonsense. Seamless transition of El Paso and then back into another 7 minutes of DS jam.
