3/9/81 Bird Song

I simply love this version. A lot of people talk on the one from Cole Field House a couple days prior, and that version is about 4 minutes longer, but this one does it more for me. -edit- P.S. marye You missed a spam (way forgiveable) about 30 posts up (samson77)

hey Billy

Check out how Jerry makes his guitar sound like a steel drum on the way back into the St. Stephen reprise. One of those 'imprint' moments for me.

Black Peter 12-13-80 Long

Black Peter 12-13-80 Long Beach- by far the best I've heard . Top 5 show which also has my favorite Deal

So Many Roads 9-18-94 Shoreline Ampitheater- one last extra solo and Jerry's vocal just gets me every time. Kills the Soldier's Field version on the So Many Roads box IMHO.

Peggy-O and Althea 3-14-81 Hartford- still ranks as my favorite show overall,although the more I listen the closer others get

Shakedown .>Franklin's 11-29-1980, another stellar show

Morning Dewand BEW Barton Hall May '77

Franklin's Tower; 3/12/81; Boston Garden

Go ahead, laugh all you want. But don't laugh too hard until you go to archive or you've dusted off your own source and listened to it -- cause I may be the one laughing at you!

I usually don't go in much for this "Best Version Ever" beauty contest stuff but this "Franklin's" does it's best!

Louisville 7/6/90

View from the Vault has a piece from Louisville KY that includes a real good Standing on the Moon. Headyversion voters prefer 8/21/93 from Eugene OR.

There's a second set one from Oakland in '91 (12-28) that I've always liked. The song probably peaked in '89-'90.
