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.

Found this version of Birdsong over at Sex Drugs and Rock n Roll, a pretty groovy online-zine based on the principles we all grew up on!

Vidbusters China Cat

Well Carl, I'm stumped. I've checked a bunch of China's and I'm sure it must be from the spring of 1972(Europe)or possibly 9-17-72. In addition, I do not have 11/14/71 nor 7/21-22/72, so check them if you have the Roadtrip downloads. Close contestants include San Antonio 11/26/72 and Long Beach 12/15/72. Due to the poor quality of your mp3 link from vidbusters it's tough to really pin it down. I do know that Keith Godchaux is on a Steinway grand piano, not an electric piano or organ, so I searched forward from September '71. It's possible the song could be from 1973, but I'd stay in 1972. I found several great versions: 10/24/71 Detroit, 12/15/71 Ann Arbor, 12/31/71 San Francisco, 8/21/72 Berkeley, 8/27/72 Veneta, 9/3/72 Boulder, 9/9/72 Hollywood, 10/18/72 St Louis, 10/26/72 Cinci, and Wichita 11/17/72. The Europe '72 version is wonderful: Paris > 5/3/72
My personal favorites come in 1973 and 1974, when the "Feeling Groovy" jam appears within the transitional jam between China and Rider.
Check out the Sunshine Daydream 8/27/72 video performance on YouTube: Sunburn city!!

Carl, Your China Cat

Is going through an MP3. Could this make up some of the differences between the DP4 and musical variation you say is there? I don't think this is from Europe 72, having listened to all of them.
