I think this may be one of the best covers made by the grateful dead.

I would like to know wich ones you think are the bests

IMO 07/16/66 is great, it is old, but a very good quality tape of that recording.

Sep 02 1983 is my personal favorite. Not only is it a great version but it was also the day I was born so I have every right to be a bit bias.

Bored diggin up old topics lol

2/24/74 hands down for me. Very nice solo and though Jerry flubs some lyrics and mumbles occasionally you can tell his hearts in it. Thats all that matters to me.

I'm not sure why, but for some reason that tune never did much for me. Though, I'm starting to warm up to it a little.

I would say hands down it's the version that closed the show from new years 84-85. I remember seeing the tears running from Jerry's eyes as he was singing this tune as this was the day after his best friend and road manager Steve Parrish lost his wife and daughter in a car accident returning from the show the night before. I guess you could say he played it with alot of emotion. I put this version as one of the top songs I ever saw Jerry play. just my opinion, however.

I realize this is an oldish topic but I just listened to the one from 1981-12-31 where joan baez sits in, really mindblowing performance of it.
