that one (from Rockpalast) was taken down, however a new one was posted last week thats just as good
I consider myself an Althea connoisseur, my favorites:
3/23/87<---probably my favorite above all, Garcias guitar work makes other Altheas feel like chickenshit
I also really like the one in the vid I posted

The hands down best slide Weir ever played, and Jerry just builds up to peak after peak during the ending solo. The emotion from both of them is just dripping all over the floor on that one.
What's really neat about my copy of the tape is that, every time the boys hit yet another peak, the crowd clearly responds with a huge "whoo!" Really, I love Althea, but I've never heard another version like this one.
