Most '77 versions are really exceptional. I like the one on "Without A Net" a lot, forget the date but it's from '89 or '90.

i almost feel bad saying it....but i agree with bodiddley--i haven't heard one i like better than the without a net version. the jam in the middle blows me away every time!

What gets me with that version everytime is the "Across the Rio Grande" part when Brent starts singing it after like the 3-4 round...Man, it never fails to give me chills and a lump in my throat. Missin' ya Brent!

ooh! I just thought of great one. 3/21/91 Cap Centre w/Bruce is monumental. W/o a Net is a great one too.

however 10/17/82 is still tops for me. Wonder what it was like seeing them outdoors in the Southern Rockies in October!

Great show, I've had that tape (yep, you read that right) for a loooong time now. Also has a beautiful Stir It Up jam coming out of Scarlet > Fire, I believe, and the 2nd set starts with an amazingly creepy Victim.


PS - and thanks to this post, my band is now playing Half-Step, and pretty well at that! We're gonna bust it out at our gig next Saturday. Thanks guys! What a fun song to play, I forgot how great it could be.

Manor Downs 8/31/85. My first show, they opened with it and their sound system outdoors was incredible. I was hooked after that.

OK, so other than the '77 versions and the one from WOAN...let's hear some more suggestions. Someone turned me on to 3-24-86 recently and it's a great version and hell of a show with a killer Dew that's now in my all time Favorite Dew list.

1/2 Step

Postby lostsailor8782 » Thu May 10, 2007 6:01 pm

3-24-86 is a really nice 1/2 step ... after the second verse and the second I'm on my way Bobby clearly says ,"keep your clothes on out there." this whloe second set is very nicely played ... nothing special about where the songs went or the song selection ... just very nicely played second set, nice nice half step !!!
I only smoke it when I am awake... I promise
