i have to agree, the spectrum 72 is one of my favs, bobby's guitar work is crazy, very jazzy, and keith's piano solo is truly wonderful, at one point he goes from the grand to some wah effect on his piano and does this solo that gets me everytime(stop and dance where ever i happen to be, mostly while driving I most look like a freakin crazy)....but truly a great, as for 8/27/73 another fav. the jam is tremendous, but billy is what i think the highlight is

My favorite has to be 4/29/71, this song was written as a eulogy for Janis Joplin and the 4/29 version will bring tears to your eyes! Jerry and Phil swap off leads until they set her spirit free with... well just listen to it. It is a pity they stopped playing it in the fall of '73 and didn't bring it back until 1980 as an acoustic song. Would have loved to hear a '74 or '77 version of this song!

my favorites are: veneta,oregon (8-27-73) where bobby plays a harmony line to jerrys and "without a net"- love both jerry and bobbys guitar work on this song and jerry plays a nice flute lead!
