Very cool Playin'Sometimes I think they got into a rut with this song in the 80's and followed a familiar pattern of jamming. This one stands out. Some of my other favorite 80's versions are 9/19/87 and 3/19/86.

Hey now! This show rocked! Jerry's voice was rough in the beginning but got better as the show progressed. The hand really clicked. I was lucky enough to be there! Great spring tour!Listen and you will agree it started great and only got better.

I haven't listened to much GD recently; I have been on a Motorhead kick. Hearing this China Rider right now, it is now spring and summer; I am AT the show; I am with the music. Grateful Dead magic.
