I just realized that this song have not been analized in depth!
I love this song! I think that through all the eras you can find something new out of this tune. It has this hypnotic regae pace I love. Ialso think that even PL&F and Ratdog have decent versions of that song.

Can you point out any GD favourites, best of era picks, etc.

I'll go one step past you and say that the best Crazy Fingers is 8/13/75. They only hint at the long jam that they would expand in 76, but Jerry's voice is pure and perfect, and his solo is one that I've memorized every note of.

9/30/76 has a beautiful, jammed out 15 minute version that segues into It's All Over Now.
6/14/76 is a pretty good one too.
Check out some of the 1982 versions when they brought this back:
7/29, 9/15, 9/21, 10/10
1985 - 10/29/85 Sweet version that jams into Drums. Great show overall too!
1987 - 4/3, 9/19
4/23/88

Thank you for the suggestions guys. This is one of my favorites, just never sought out for the best and I have the feeling this is a beginning.

Another studio reference... I don't see it that way.
However, I can't date specific versions, though I have heard them... I will try to name some in the near future that stand out in my mind.

I can dig a studio version. This was a great song on album, yet the live stuff builds on top of what was built in the studio.

I listened to the 10/29/85 version yesterday. Man, sick jam after the outro. This is a long finger too, clocking in at around 15 minutes.

Is it in the power slot?
I kind of remember this show, great SQ I remember... perhaps I should revisit it.

Yes - 1/2 Step>Franklins>Sailor>Saint>Crazy Fingers.
I know Crazy Fingers is not your favorite but this one is really good.

Some great recommendations so far, obviously One From the Vault (8 13 75) is a standard bearer, but I think it must be pointed out that this is one song that either it is great or it just doesn't work and it sucks. We should almost have a list of ones to skip, especially if Jerry is of the croaky voice that night.

For me, that list would probably be longer than the play list would be.

the versions from 1975-76 are stellar.

in addition to what has already been mentioned i'll add:

10/10/82 (frost)
6/9/91 (buckeye)

both have great outro jams.

Good call on 6/9/91. I was at that show. Nice transitions throughout set 2. Playin> Gone and Other One> Wharf are also really nice.

9/7/90 has VERY nice Truckin> Crazy transition. Last minute of Truckin just melts. You're Crazy

Like everyone said, 8/13/75 is easily the best. From Keiths intro to Phil busting out those last notes before the drums come in, its pure perfection.

But no one ever talks about how amazing the 6/17/75 version is. It comes as a very close second for me.

4/28/85

Honrsby shines on 4/7/91: Crazy Fingers > Playin' > UJB > Plain' Jam ( What I would argue is the most underrated show of 91').

I haven't heard all the versions of Crazy Fingers yet but I can agree with everyone who says that 8/13/75 was amazing.

Just gave it a listen and liked what I heard! Thanks for the suggestions. I've been consciously looking to get more into the 80's and 90's stuff.

When they resurrected "Crazy Fingers" on 7-18-82 in Ventura, CA the place went wild. One of the singular moments of pure glee much like the "Help on the Way" on 3-25-83, and the "Cryptical" on 6-16-85.

Ah... but did it measure up to the welcome it received?
That song is very hit or miss for me.
