From the recently released Cow Palace NYE 1976--I've had that tape since '77--still holds up after every listen

Sugaree

I seem to recall that Sugaree - I think 10/17/83 was one of the first tapes I ever got. Sort of a tinny audience tape, like many were in those days.
12/28/79 is a great Sugaree, as are several of the loooong versions from 1977. Also there's a show Hornsby did in maybe 96 or 97 in which Weir showed up for Sugaree. That's a good one. Later in the show Phil came out too.

Sugaree - Lake Placid 10-17-83

Would have to say that the Lake Placid sugaree in '83 is the all-time greatest version of this song.

I love that DS, GrayFolded - especially with the Deal chaser - KILLER!!!

"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."

I might catch some flac for this one...

Most cats I talk to prefer later versions, but this is an all-time great in my opinion...

I spent about 4 days

I spent about 4 days searching through my old tapes, casettes and reel to reels, searching for some Looks like Rain I had seen way back when... the one that seemed to last forever...

finally, right before the old board got cut off, I found the one... or was it just ab\nother really grate version? we may never know. all things seemed to go on forever that night.

10/17/84

another reason to bring the old board's content back, hint hint...

I had to look through all my tapes AGAIN because I spaced on the one I found a couple of weeks ago... ( -;

peace.

best versions

Hard to Handle - tie: 4/28/71 and 4/29/71
Eyes of the World - 10/19/74
I Know You Rider - 5/2/70
Bertha - 3/21/94
Good Lovin' - 4/17/71
The Weight - 3/28/90
Sugaree - 5/22/77 (many from that year are a close second)

I tried to think of a best version of Dark Star, but it is such a complex and crazy tune that I think it deserves its own seperate thread...
