I looking for shows from mostly 66-74 but if it's a really hot show from any other year I'll give it a try. I don't care if it's an AUD or a SB either. Thanks.

I tend to find most shows from '70-'71 have that raw ragged edge with reckless abandon in the playing like the famous 9-19-70.

try the Ark shows from Boston in 69 or any April 1971 shows are very cool....

Kezar from 73 is pretty cool as well.

I have the first two Ark shows (21 & 22) and I came to the conclusion that Apric/May were good months for the band.

2/7/69 Pittsburgh

two of the craziest, rawest Alligator>Cautions ever.

Tigerstrat I have to admit that I've looked at that 2/15 show quite a few times but I never downloaded it just because of the nasty cut in the end of The Eleven into Death Don't. Kind of a stupid reason but I'm kind a particular about those things, but I really should be grateful for the music that's there and I shouldn't complain about the cuts.

8/6/71 comes to mind. Probably the best hard to handle ive heard, other than that its a pretty solid show with lots of energy
