Am I the only one who really hates the song Knockin' on Heavens Door( even the GD versions).....yet I fucking love JGB versions....Jerry's guitar while singing Knock Knock Knockin' on Heavens door is very cool.....the reggae style and females vocals help a lot too.....

Like the Bob Dylan version although now I've heard so many versions of it the song doesn't affect me anymore. The Dead's versions were flat out boring and a lame way to end a show. Jerry's versions were only a hair better -yes the reggae beat helped but still a snoozer. Of all of them, I like G&R's the best!!

I'll take the JGB version any day. I'll admit that when the GD played this tune to end a show I was heading for the exit!

Not many were headed for the parking lot on 6/17/94 Autzen Stadium, Eugene, OR - when Jerry sang "sun is setting in western skies" right while the sun was truly setting in western skies.

The version on Garcia Plays Dylan (2/15/76) just may be my favorite piece of Jerry playing ever. It is sure to knock--no pun intended--your socks off!
