Have to go with 6-3-76. Jerry driving that Crazy Fingers into Wharf Rat is some of his finest work IMHO. Probably one of my top 3 shows. Too bad I was 3 and couldn't get out of pre school to go.

the breakout 6/17/75, is an obvious one- w/ Merl Saunders sit,ting in on B-3.

another honorable mention: 4/19/86 Berkeley Community Theater, set II opener.

I enjoy 6/3/76 as well...however I think the best version was created in the studio
