Help on the Way

This was the second set opener . . .I had some friends who got there real early and had seats in the bleachers on the left side of the floor . . .I have never seen Oakland, save and except for the craziness of a parade or the like, so ON FIRE - the staff at the coliseum could not keep the dancing people out of the aisles . . .i don't know the exact stats as to how long it had been since the boys had busted out a help/slip/franklin's but i think it had been quite a while . . . and a very notable crazy fingers - jerry's solo is the sweetest thing these ears have ever heard - GOOSE BUMPS WIDE REMEMBERING THIS GEM . . .anyone else remember it like this??????~KRISSY~

"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
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.
