personal fave is the Hard to Handle off Philzone, August 6, 1971. So loose, so jammin-danceable.
I liked it so much I wrote an article about it
such a hot solo.
i agree with the guy shakedown 4/6/82
morning dew , terrapin from that show also amazing
that 2nd set is one of their best moments
also 9/21/82 set 1
looks like rain,playin,crazy fingers
all top versions
and the southwest motif overall
after looks like....jerry says lets get the f**k outta here
and then i think they come back and do china rider
this is 1st set mind you
the playing is inspired
i still use these two shows as material when i teach improvisation to music students
Branford and Hornsby pretty much top my list in this regard.
My new (re-discovered) favorite is the often mentioned show with Branford at Nassau, 3-29-90. Thanks for mentioning that show everyone. The entire second set is incredible, but go now and listen to the Eyes of the World and the Lovelight.
What other guest musicians have come out and put on that type of performance with the band? In Chicago, James Cotton rocked Schoolgirl on June something 1992 (my first show).

3/30/08 Phila Pa Sweetest reggie version of Uncle's John's Band!
eyes of the world from Englishtown
The Music Never Stopped from the Phil zone. The sweetest feeling. Thank's Phil
Just curious, what is your favorite black throated wind? I've been looking for a good one to show to potential deadheads for a while now, any advice?
I shy away from anything post Brent so my exposure to Days Between is limited. Anyone have a favorite version of Days Between ? To me, that song is Jerry and Hunter at there finest. Thanks in advance....
