    great doc

  2. VoJ, Hands down my fav Dylan cover song by the Dead. Anyone know of a 70s show in the archive with this tune? Would luv to hear Jerry sing it with his peak voice.

  3. Watkins Glen “Takes a lot to Laugh…” only one I can think of.

  4. 04-22-86 at BTC is my fave. Perfect tempo for that tune. The 95’s were too darn slow.

  5. Saw one of the last ones in Oakland in ’95. About a month before this one. They were using teleprompters by this time. Sometimes he would stay on track, sometimes he wouldn’t. I was thrilled to hear it.

  6. When I saw this as a lad in ’86 it was so far over my head you couldn’t even see my head from where it was
