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 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...
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us
