Favorite Blow Away (2

Favorite Blow Away (2 actually): Riverfront Coliseum 4/89 - dude got caught up in the moment during the Brent rap and got on stage, had to be escorted off. 10/26/89 - right after Estimated and right before Dark Star, weird placement and an over the top version
Favorite Estimated (2 again): the aforementioned 10/26/89 - some spacey jamming before they open set 2 with it. 9/2/80 - a spiraling solo from Jer that I wish would never end.
Favorite Bertha: 12/31/87 - the band comes out firing, great solo

Many and Often

There are so many
and they change so often
I am always finding a version of "x" song I love more than another.
And there is the "live vs version"
However
Shakedown - 3.30.87
Ripple - 9.3.88
come immedately to mind.

Rats, gotta get back to the mine............

Cheers!

UJB

If you get a chance check out the 12/26/79 UJB. The solo is amongs of the most emotive playing I've heard from Jerry.

Ooops, this was meant in reply to the first post on UJB. I thought it would just go to that person.

Best Touch of Grey

Ever hear the 3/27/87 Touch?

I was at the show in Hartford. For whatever reason the band and crowd really clicked on that one. I was on the floor about 10 rows back and the roar was magnificent.
