favorite versions of "Eyes Of The World". I really love this song but I don't feel like I've heard the long definitive version that I'm sure exists. Help me out

PS. I'd definitely prefer a Keith era over anything else I'm sure

Three versions that I think are particularly memorable;

The So Many Roads boxset version from Winterland October '74
The Dick's Picks 31 (I think) version from Roosevelt Stadium August '74
The remastered Wake Of The Flood bonus track. I think this is from October '73 but I'm not sure where.

For good measure, I also rather like the one on One From The Vault, August '75

Wow, there are so many HOT ones, it's really hard to pick. A couple of my favorites are 6/20/74 from the Omni in Atlanta (out of a gorgeous jam and then it headed into Slipknot), 5/26/73 Kezar at home in SF (in between the Other One and China Doll) and 10/29/77 Dekalb, IL. 10/29 gives you the standard Estimated > Eyes coupling

Your mileage may vary.....

The version on Without a Net with Branford Marsalis is sublime IMO. This was produced by Phil and I read something he said in an interview once which I can't qoute from memory but when asked to name one of his magical memories on stage he mentioned this song from this show (Without a Net being compilation of various live show cuts) as being one of his highlights (guess he was saying they were 'Hitting the note' ) This is a Brent era show as are the others on the CD.

That Winterland Eyes is also on The Grateful Dead Movie. I once heard David Gans on the Grateful Dead Hour state that it is his favorite song/performance of everything they ever played.

Me too, Effie - I figured if it's good enough for Phil then it's definitely good enough for me and ran out and purchased the CD after reading the interview. And ended up loving it!

I was at 6 17 91. What a show. It was raining out and the sun came out right as the Dead took the stage and they opened with Eyes. I believe it was the only Eyes opener ever or up to that point. Little Feat opened the show and the night before and this night seemed to morph into one long show.

Other favorites are as mentioned. The Branford Marsalis Nassau 90 from Without a Net. I went the night before and the night after but not this one. DOHH !! This song and Box of Rain are the tunes that got the GD hooks into me.

The One from the Vault version, DP 3 , DP 12 and 14 are my top picks. I can't quote acutal dates but I had a tape of a show from Jersey City 74 where Phil is just insane . Kezar Stadium 73 and I always also liked the version in Grateful Dead Movie. They cut it short in the original but I always dug the ballerina on the side of the stage during Jerry's sweet playing. After 77 or so the versions seem to be played kind of rushed until the great but short lived resurgence of 89-90 and early 91.
