So after watching Festival Express, I got really interested in watching for great expressions on Jerry's face when he plays. In the video recording of Hard to Handle from Festival Express you see some some sweet focusing starting around 2:28.

On top of that, Hard to Handle is a pretty sick song in and of itself. I love how Jerry just puts in raw energy into this song. The words that pop into mind when I hear his solos on this song are "raw" and "dirty" - which reflect in the band elsewhere only in describing Pig Pen's voice. I only wish Jerry used some sort of distortion on those solos.

Other than 1971-08-06 (stellar AUD!), are there any other great Hard to Handles I should hear? Or videos of priceless Jerry expressions?

3/24/71 and 4/29/71 come to mind.

edit: I recall hearing somewhere that the audience goes so crazy on 8/6/71 because Jerry was wailing so hard that he fell to his knees. any confirmation? I think Phil says in the Phil Zone cd notes that "maybe Pigpen was doing some funny dance" or something, but I don't know... did Pigpen ever do the James Brown?
