Then you'll probably like 12-30-86...you can hear a pin drop.
Just listened to Barcelona 10-19-81 at someone's suggestion here, That also has a very good one.

Can anyone help me track a version of Stella? It was filler on a tape of Richmond in '85, but I haven't been able to find the original show. The Stella was singular- you couldn't mistake it for another. Jerry's guitar sounded like metal on metal, complete with feedback. The vocals were intense and strained. I'd love to get a digital copy of that track, as well as the rest of the show...

Jer does one where he takes a killer all-distortion solo.
Anyone recall the date???... 'Would love to re-find it.

Found the one I was looking for...only took a few years. Saratoga Performing Arts Center; 6.28.88. I was missing most of the final solo on my filler copy- glad to find this one in Sdbrd quality. Looking forward to checking out the entire show uninterrupted in the morning... The Stella is a must for fans of the song-

I am currently listening to the version from "dozin' at the knick" the end solo is truly gut wrenching every time I hear it. A true tear jerk er :cry: .

Love these best version threads, I'll throw in 3/31/87 @ the Spectrum. An unbelievable ending jam with Jerry's delay perfectly synched. A show stopper as I remember.

This is my favorite Dead song and my tops are the version off Dozin, 10-19-1994 MSG, 12-29-1984 San Fran Auditorium and the one I have been listening to a lot lately is 10-25-1979 New Haven Colliseum. The thing I love about Stella is how they keep it fresh and while there are some similarities there are no versions I have heard that really mirror each other that well each one is a new adventure and a total experience for me. I currently do not have that show you mention and I am heading out to the archive now.
