Hello to All,

I was curious as to how many of you out there have seen this song played live by the Dead and which version you liked more. Thanks!

I've never seen it live but my favorite live version is 5-1-77, Tragically the last few seconds of the sounboard is cut....don't that figure!? So I listen to the aud recording of it most of the time.

I saw them perform it many a time as far as a favorite version can't give an exact date. The version on DL Vol. 7 is really good!

I like 5/18/77. Brokedown is the encore and it finishes a great show.

Brokedown was by far my favorite (OK, along with Baby Blue and Bid U Goodnight) encore song while seeing them live, and I caught it maybe 10 times out of 150.

Ya, I just checked out that 5-18-77 version and thought it very good. If you like that, I highly recomend 5-1-77. In fact I like like the way they sound so much I'm going to listen to the remaining 3-4 versions from '77 later tonight. Great stuff!

I've lately been listening to 2/14/86 version - although I love the 77's - Jerry's voice has a wonderful full and raspy quality on this version - full of heart and soul

I really dig the one on dead set, Brent adds a really nice touch to it.

Heard it live twice, both times at the Rainbow Theater London on March 24th 1981 and October 6th 1981.

Favourite version is the one off Dead Set

I've seen it a bunch of times - most of which I don't remember when or where. But the most memorable one was in Pittsburg Civic Center - 85 (I think?) - It was an encore and Jerry started into the first verse totally wrong - they just stopped all together - then Jerry says something into the mic like "that was really good wasn't it" - and then they start the song all over again and Jerry sings it correctly - funny shit!

I love that song...

They only did it around 5 times in '77...have to check my DeadBase. I just love the way they did it that year, too bad there's not more versions.
