1972. Try to make some time at least to listen to the last disc of Steppin' Out.

And many thanks to Bob for all that mind-blowing music he sent via our way.

It's hard to nail down THE best of any tune, right? But, I like the 1-15-78 Terrapin>Playin': Jerry taps into some serious alien tone in this one. I understand the AUD is all that's available. Check out the 1/26-2/1/09 installment of the Taper's Section for this. Also, the Comes a Time from Buffalo 5-9-77 is a real mood piece.

guitar solo in High Time


RE: "High Time - 1981-05-06, anyone else know of a High Time with a guitar solo??????"

Exceedingly rare, but yes ~ Richmond 11-01-85, check out Dick's 21. A beauty.

And followed by He's Gone! (and much, much more, two more Jerry ballads alone still await)

I'll have to look for 5-06-81. Excellent harmonies by Bob on the Go to Nassau version a year earlier 516-80.

Cold, Rain, and Snow

The hottest Cold Rain I ever saw ~ one sorely underrated, as is the 10-song first set it's in the middle of ~ was 3-19-86, first night Hampton. Jerry's tease a moment before the song crashes in only makes it sweeter, and it's the only one I ever saw (or post-70s version I've ever heard) where Jerry goes double-duty on the high note on one of the choruses (this a-Way-ay-ay-AY-ay-ay-AY....) as on versions of old.

As for those old super-fast versions, 5-31-69 is hard to beat. Must've been the last stretch of that arrangement (they'd switched it over by the end of the year). The Monterey one's great, too, except someone's blowing a flute or something over top of it.

Well, and then there's that Madison Square 10-12-83 one, which my friend Al used to refer to as "the great one."

So Many Roads

Listened to the 03/28/93 show from the Knickerbocker in Albany on Sirius today. Jerry's vocal gave me goosebumps it was so good, near the end of the song I actually started to tear up a little.

It's a Sin jam into Stella Blue is quite memorable from Freedom Hall, icing the cake after a wonderful Eyes of the World > China Doll in the 1st set! Listen to the Weather Report Suite too.
