What is the best version of jessica you have heard? In 2005 at Spac the Bros opened the show with it and it was awesome.

Oddly enough the best version for me still is the studio version from B&S. Probably the only song from their catalogue that i prefer in it's original studio version.

Agreed. W/O Chuck... It ain't Jessica.

Agreed. Vince said all that needed to be said to make the vote unanimous. Chuck makes the song complete.

Agreed with Brothers And Sisters. Second in my opinion would be the version from Wipe The Windows, you talk about chuggin' on down the line!!! WOW!

It's not Jessica without Dickey...

You need his tone.

For me it will be Artpark near Niagara Falls a few years back.

My kids & I watched DB & GS tear it up from seats on stage.

Can't beat that at all.

Bottom Line NYC 1983. This was the Great Southern lineup that included Chuck.
Went both nights.

Yes, the BHLT (Betts, Hall, Leavell, Trucks) version is real nice -- their show from March 1983 is real nice
concur with the studio version

I agree with Charlie on this one! the 2007 Jessica from their Jazzfest show is always first up on my ipod when I get in my car in the AM. I literally listen to this version every day and I never get tired of hearing. it always starts my day off with a smile!

Must have Chuck (Dickey too).Best piano solo in R&R. Wipe The Windows is my favorite;a lot of power. Get the remixed version-the whole place explodes when Dickey starts his solo while Gregg ramps up the Leslies.

Another vote for the studio as #1.

Runner ups include Paris '91, Merriwether '91 and Denver, CO 94.

I love the Jazzfest Jessica but I don't think Chuck really adds much to it. IHMO I don't think the band supports his solo all that well and it seems just blend in rather than dominate. You end up barely noticing it. That Jessica is a great performance by the Warren/Derek lineup for sure and I enjoy it as much as anyone but I don't really think of it as Jessica per se.

With the composer Dickey Betts, then Chuck, Lamar... and seeing that this is the weekend anniversary of Watkins Glen 7/27/73... Watkins Glen version... W O W ... 600, 000 strong.. what a weekend of great music... THE ABB / THE BAND / THE DEAD ....
I am so happy to say I WAS THERE>><<

and then the studio version from B&S , really, it is hard to say ,as I have seen many , many shows and they were all THE BEST at that moment... the begining sounds of Jessica can get you on your feet...with a huge smile on your face...

Aside from the original version that appeared on Brothers and Sisters - my personal favorite version is by the Dixie Dregs on their live, California Screemin' album.

Same tune, for the most part. A very nice organ solo by the late, T. Lavitz replaces Chuck's piano. Steve Morse just takes the solo into outer space!

I agree 100% every live version is played at about 1/2 speed way to slow the original is the best

I enjoy the studio version the most, but any version that Dickey plays.

When the current lineup does it, it's OK.

And I abbsolutely hate it when they throw a JaBuMaOt in the middle of it. Hate it, hate it, hate it.

But that's me ...

The version on the Nassau Coliseum Archive release is excellent. I also prefer the studio version of Melissa. I like the pace of it and I think Gregg's vocals were never as passionate as on Eat a Peach.

I agree about Dickey and Chuck's playing making that song. That said, I do enjoy the versions played on the 2000 summer tour.

That's me, too. Also agree that Dickey must be playing on it!
