Yes, it didn't make it onto Live/ Dead but it should have. I believe it is the greatest Dead concert of all time. Of course, that's just my opinion. But, consider this. The Other One just knocks you about. It kicks your butt. Then there's the transition into Dark Star where it feels like you've died and your soul is ascending to heaven.
Great soloing from Jerry
Bombing bass from Phil
Piggish blues from Mr. Pen
Spacey keys from T.C.
Jazzy drums from Billy
Wild whamming from Mickey
And some good old lily field tripping from Bobby
