I am genuinely shocked this isn't listed here as of June '20! Coming off a hot Jack Straw, the sound is big and energetic. Could do without accordion.

In a show where the band was on throughout, this is a nice cap on a hot second set

Pretty good version, Jerry's guitar goes out for part of the jam and Vince has an opportunity to shine, but is timid instead and energy level drops.

When Jerry brings his flute to the second jam section, he lays down a pretty sweet solo.

Phil truly leading the charge on that jam! And throughout the song, honestly...

I love the explosion at 16 minutes, the cacophony that it is. And I am curious after 9 minutes, is that Ned? Or is it Keith? There's an 'essay' on what's called the Grateful Dead Guide, and it states, "The nedbase site conclusively shows that it was Keith (who was unusually adventurous that day) - Ned wasn't there."- something to ponder. Regardless, it's a nice exploration. Not a fan of the high-pitched noise around 22 minutes, though.

I echo all the sentiment listed above, however the vocal flubs are jarring in an otherwise enjoyable version. Will have to compare to 6/18.
