Heck YEAH there are much much better ones than any of those early versions from 71.

Go directly to 8/19/80 Chicago, do not pass go and do not collect $200... be sure and listen to the PITB from which CaT emerges too.

There also are some sweet ones with the Godchauxs, but that one is the all-time, IMHO.

Boston, 6/12/76.

This show was put out on CD in the "left in the vaults" series which was some sort of non-GD bootleg deal, I think.

Anyway, not only the best CAT IMHO, but the best, most moving, gut-wrenching, soul-tingling, goose-pimply Jerry guitar solo ever played any time on any song. (And this comes from a guitarist who played in a Dead cover band for awhile.)

Check it out if you can find a copy. If not, I can send you the song in mp4 format.

Cheers!

The best one I've heard is from 5/9/77, in Buffalo. Good Help-->Slip-->Frank, too.

I have to go with 5/23/72 on this one. That version blew me away the first time I heard it and every time since.

I like the Dick's Pick 29. From Fox Theatre and Lakeland 1977 I really enjoy all selections from both shows. I did take the above comment about the 6-12-1976 show. I was able to get it off archive and have really enjoyed it so far but I like my fav a little better than this one but it is still a great version and a good show thanks for the input.

Oh and the Chicago show mentioned above is a close second I also recommend that as well as the whole show.

12/10/71 is my fav. Jerry's voice is so mournful. When the solo comes at the end, there are holes big enough to drive a truck through.
Sometimes it's the notes that DON'T get played that are the good ones.

also, if any of you are in for another one of Jerry's most gut-wrenching, powerful and soulful SOLOS of all time, give this is a listen (his second solo which follows keiths piano solo at 5:35))

this might be my favorite Jerry "solo"

5/10/1980 from Hartford Civic Center - Garcia's vocals are a bit rough but the solo is sublime.

6/20/1986 from The Greek Theater - Playin' -> Comes a Time is just wonderful and features some very unique jamming in the outdo. Some great Schoeps recordongs exist - a Sean Weber Small recording, split with mk2s capsules and Mike Grace with mk2 capsules in a wide "Healy" configuration. Dig it! I think I like the split mk2s recording more but they are both great. For this type of recording I prefer the mk2s capsule so that is probably why.

All's well that sounds well.
