You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."

Short List of Best Versions

Viola: 5/2/70 (of course)
Here Comes Sunshine: DP1 (I still play this song for my Dead-ignorant friends to convert them)
Dancin' In the Streets: 5/19/77 (Notice how often 77 is mentioned).

I am a huge Eyes of the World fan. Can anybody out there point me to some of their favorite versions?+

OK, I am listening to

OK, I am listening to GDRadio, real good mix, take a listen if you have not already

They just played Winterland 10-18-78, and the Truckin' to close the show is freaking great, and the Miracle encore is just real sweet.

No Sadly About It

Islandmyk, that's my favorite time, too. Looks Like Rain is one of those tunes - the only way I expect to have heard it at it's best is from the tapes - and there are some great performances - check the Europe Tour bonus version - many agree it's one of the best! Bienvenidos!

Looks Like Rain...

I reluctantly admit I got into the band much too late in life...a couple of years after Jerry left us. I picked up a copy of Without A Net at a friend's urging, and the first song that nailed me to the wall was the rendition of Looks Like Rain. Beautifully orchestrated and accompanied, I simply fell in love with it.

Sadly, the closest I ever came to seeing the boys live was an Other Ones show in 2000. It was a good show, but if I could travel back in time, I would love to see the band perfom in the early to mid 70's, my personal favorite era of the band.
