The official one helps, especially if you have a DeadBase with every time played section. Thanks Dead.net for making this another gimme. :-)

Can't figure why this gorgeous show was never released.

Very moving version of Stella Blue.
I got lucky and found this one very quickly and owe a special thanks to Dave over at NGS. I am very glad I talked to you after your presentation and greatly appreciate your generosity.
It seems like all this life
Was just a dream

is it me, or is this the first time the "official" hint is actually a hint?

. . . also had a very helpful hint. Otherwise, yeah, the official hints are more fact than hint. I always enjoy seeing an actual hint. Adds to the fun. ;)

This version is haunting and dynamic; sticks to my soul. Is that Keith unplugged?!?

Edit button and erase text maybe? Not sure if everyone has the same capabilities on their devices.

This one some tingly moments. Lots of room between the notes. They really take their time. Yeah the hints are way easy this year but good for them to include more people hopefully.

i love to listen to the song while doing math. tone deaf people must all start their search this way...length of song...length till first vocal...and then when i get 2 feeds to sync up...a miracle...but this one synced up and playing loud was awe inspiring beautiful.
thanks dave for another gem.

by this amazing performance. It's a good one for just planting yourself somewhere, closing your eyes and vegetating while the music flows through you. Nice happy ending too.

This has gotta be the slowest Stella Blue I've ever heard. May even be the slowest song ever recorded by anyone anywhere.

That is a serious hint, I should have read it closely from the start. Such a wonderfully played version!

Well everybody's dancin', 50 Trips Around The Sun
Nobody's finished, we ain't even begun
30 Days of Dead, to you I tip my hat
Fly on your wings, 'cause you know where it's at
Hey hey, hey, come let's party every day
