I know I usually (over-)cite this amazing second set in reference to the superlative Scarlet>Fire but the whole Space> NFA> Wharf Rat sequence is also exquisite... heart-rending riffs from Jerry, and drum-tight ensemble singing.
"There, in huge black letters, was 'The Grateful Dead'. It just... cancelled my mind out."-Garcia
I guess with a login name like "augustwest" I feel obliged to give my opinion on this one.
11/9/79 buffalo,ny. Right out of drums comes this fantastic rendition. I love the versions with brent. Not just for the harmonies but for right after the bridge when he hits in with that thunderous wave on the organ, right into "I'll get up and fly away" I really like the one from hampton 81 as well. But for today this one is my favorite.
