Steppin Out's Greatest Story has to be one of the best ones I have ever heard.Can anyone suggest a Greatest Story that may be better or at least contains the same amount of energy of which Steppin Out possesses?

Most '72, '73 GSET's really smoke. My main problem with them is Donna's Goddamned Banshee wailing during the instrumental. Almost ruins it for me everytime. Jerry was playing this like a man posessed during this era.

Actually I love Donna in a good 73 GSET.

She makes the jam climax! IMO.

But hate her in Playin'...

I'm not a big fan of the 80's GSET's, mostly because I love the wail of a wah pedal rather than the Mutron. Don't get me wrong, though I love the Mutron and the early eighties.

As for Donna, I believe when it comes to a Scarlet jam (Preferably '74) she can really be disappointing.

Donna makes me climax. :shock:
Love the Scarlet from the Dead Movie - shes looking at Jerry hes looking at her ,both playing away ...
I do tend to go for the Dead in the late 70s - 80's and love the Mu tron solo....
Still the early 70 s have a certain energy that is cool ....

Im all for the Field Trip one. And I also have an un-dated one around 71-72 area. Best one ive ever heard yet I have no idea what the date is :(. But I listened to the one from Steppin' Out and must admit I was not that impressed. Jerry's leads toward the end get good but overall not the greatest IMO

There's one on DP28, it's a dual show release from 2-26 and 2-28-73. Really rips if ya can handle the Donna factor.

I've always kinda liked the 4/29/71 GSET- that stark, staccato intro line from Phil is really neat, no long jam though.
