Don McGurrin put it best several years ago:

"The next one I see."

I have many. Loved the NYE one on 12.31.06, with Jessie from the Hackensaw Boys. There was a great one on 2.1.08, too, to close set 1 at Mexiali (the night of that 7SM).

The one in Utah in '04 - the first time they did the "Get Up Offa That Thing" riff (also done on 12.31.06).

The project is afoot. The database has been cleaned up immeasurably thanks to Bob Curtis. There's several pieces that need to be worked on, including an interface for Papa Phil to use to auto-send to earthboard, here, and to the database.

Patience. We've gone without it for two years now...a little longer, please. :)

Yea no worries. I don't mean to sound impatient. It makes me excited to hear that is will soon happen. I wish I could help anyway. If there is, please send me a message.

Was it me or was that a really amazing NEW JAM at the Fillmore 12/28/09?

Could it be the "best yet"?

Donkey for Sale from Portland's NYE run on the Retrospective is awesome. First version of the song I've loved.

Then I think 1/2 of what was done in Portland could be contenders for "best version ever".

The 10-2-07 SBD of John's Jig> Buddha is my favorite 8-) Great instrumental interplay
They got the power of the sun
and the strength of the soil
Finding peace in their hearts
and faith in their toil

I think that was the hottest jam ever for Seven Story Mountain. I remember thinking at that time that it was as hot as anything I ever heard the Dead do. They hit a new level that night.

Won't argue that. It was 24 mins of mind-blowing goodness.

Admittedly I haven't listened to every version of Warhead Boogie on archive, but I can't imagine it getting much better than 4/7/2004. Holy @#$ that's a smokin' version....

It's track 15. Not recommended listening for small children, pregnant women, or anyone with a heart condition. Proceed with caution...

The whole show kills by the way; the band is simply on fire. Peter Grant sits in on pedal steel.
