4-6-87 really whips things up quite nicely. Another late day version I really love is 3-16-94.

I'm gonna have to go with 10/20/84 Syracuse Carrier Dome, which is just insanely jammed out. Rock n Roll!!!

and 12/28/88, maybe partly because I was there... in general I prefer the "newer" ones with the crisply defined descending lick intro to the older ones that begin more amorphously, sounding almost like LLR.

8-22-93 Autzen : the debut of BOLT guitar; long jam by Jerry as it appears Bobby has something wrong with his guitar.

9-19-90 MSG : great quality on archive to stream; massive energy with Phil very present in the mix.

It probably isn't the best, but I was just listening to a show from Cincinnati 10/30/70 that has a great early rocking version.

Really im fine with most Jack Straws ive heard which is probably around 50-60 of em. One of my all time favs is the one from Go To Nassau. Jgar tears it up in that one.

To me a great jack straw is based upon jam intensity

10-17-78
9-2-78
1-22-78
12-31-79
11-21-78(wish i had a crisp version)
11-6-77

Love it when Jerry lifts off into take off mode :-)

Wayyyyy too many to name. It also depends on what kind of mood I'm in and if I want to hear an early pre-hiatus version or an extremely raunchy and crunchy later version.

I also agree with you stagger, the intensity of the jam says it all. Sometimes it's like a rocket that never quite takes off, other times it's like the rocket is flat out unstoppable.

Has anyone else noticed that alot of non-deadheads really like Jack Straw or is that just me?

EDIT: here's a link to an extremely nice JS jam that caspersvapors posted in another thread http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBjVZJfP ... ed&search=

oho.. i gotta weigh in on THIS one./..

Postby kenneybonz » Sun Sep 30, 2007 3:05 am

only one rises to that title...the glen falls ny show, i think 82... awesome sound quality too.. but in adition to making it an awesome version you get a fumble tounged bobby saying something like an apology for the show starting late because " certain members of the rythym section couldn't make it here on time.." that jack straw is my vote for the all time best...

and what cracked me up the most was all of the posts on there agreeing that this is it for best jack straw.. toooooo funny ,, and i thought i was a lone wolfe... :smile: :smile: :smile:
