So glad this tune made the cut for acoustic rotation and new release is fantastic. Great tension build in the jam

Super crisp song portion and tension/release jam segment. Very worthy

Jerry is crazy nimble in this. Fresh from a 30 days of dead release - a choice cut

Awesome beyond measure. Magnificent, blissful peak, then breaks free completely from the song convention for deep exploration, landing after a serious manic moment, softly, into Playin' reprise. Shocking this one has so few votes.

Remains a SERIOUS deep space venture to the cosmos. Really, really far out jam, while staying melodic with no frantic cacophonous breakdown. Perplexing why this isn't showed more love.

This one is tricky, because the whole band is clicking and Jerry is undeniably crushing it with fiery leads up the fret board. However, Bobby's slide is so distracting to me and takes me out of those "it" moments.

Jerry initiates his leads with absolutely spine tingling, delicate flutters, then builds the peak to cathartic explosion. Gorgeous

Smoking early version of Deal. Not the face shredding '89-'90 variety, but a hot little potato all the same
