Headin' east!

I will agree that this version of eyes of the World is pretty ass kickin', especially since it is the first time performed.

Thanks Mark for the reseed on 2/9/73

The artwork is very nice and will fit snugly into my new cd wallet for early 1973 GD tunes.

The Eyes have it

Maples has arrived in Kansas: will image the discs and send out Tuesday, 1/13. I'll search my mailbox for the next recipient's address.
I, too, hold Eyes of the World in my top 3 song list, w St Stephen and Standing On the Moon.
1973 thru 1975 Eyes certainly are jazzy.

Eyes

I agree with you about the 74 versions, I love them. I like the 77 versions, but I think they were played too fast. Try RFK 6/10/73, its 20 minutes of heaven. I love versions where Phil really gets off. For a decent Brett era version, I like Cleveland 11-29-79.
When I was actively going to a lot of shows, 78-83, it seemed like they played Estimated> Eyes almost every show. I remember sometimes being disappointed, but what I wouldn't give to go back in time and re-live those "grate" times.

Eyes

I like the late '73 (November) and '74 versions with that unmistakable jam jingle near the end of the song (same jam jingle shown in Grateful Dead movie version). This little jam was repeated and seemed to have been dropped after '74. It's not in the Maples '73 version. But it's in the Miami 6-22-74 Jai-Alai Fronton version from the vine I got here. The climax jingle thingie I am referring to is at 11:30 minutes in the 6-22-74 Eyes.

Disc 2 Eyes

David, you got me looking forward to listening to the Eyes from this show. It is probably my favorite Dead song and I love how it changed depending on the era.

DISC 2 EYES

I don't claim to be an expert, and I have not listened to as many shows as some of you. Ok, with that said, the Eyes version here on Disc 2 is one of the most addictive versions I have ever heard. It's certainly not the best version I have heard ( 1 from Vault 1975 is best in my opinion). But Bob's rhythm chords and noodling (I think guitar players call this voicings) is absolutely addictive, and I can't get it out of my head. His playing is very catchy. I don't remember Bobby playing the rhythm exactly like this on other versions I have heard. Listen to his playing at 1:00 through 1:15 and 3:00 through 3:15 minutes as examples.

As a late 80s' head, I am so dang frustrated that Bobby ditched his hollow-bodied Gibson guitars in the early 80s and used solid-bodied guitars with distortion for the rhythm tone of the Dead. It just clashed with Jerry's clean tone.
