My money is on 12.1.71 Boston Music Hall. It blistered.

Can't remember a killer Other One>Uncle from the early '70's

When I was in college, I had a handful of precious tapes. One had a fantastic version of The Other>Me and My Uncle. The tape was from the early 1970's. What were some of the best? This sounded like the horses were thundering across the plain, into a murderous melee. Any suggestions? The tape's been lost for years.

TO LAY ME DOWN

During the MSG run of 1990. That was something.

Lovelight w/ Janis

6-7-69 Pigpen and Janis Joplin 'Getting It On' so bad you can smell it. Janis fills in the gaps where Pig's rantngs usually turn away those that heard it before. Killer stuff, Jerry's licks are On as well. Check it out if you can find it!

For the Looks Like Rain freaks (not sure I'm one but anyways) check out those from the spring of '72 on which Jerry plays pedal steel. I'm not sure he was ever of greater service to that song than w/ those versions. He made that thing cry.

Preposterous

Of course I can unequivocally state the best China-Rider ever......02-22-74.
Ask me again next week and I'll probably say the same thing.
