Grateful Dead – Man Smart, Woman Smarter (Live in 1989)

This is a pretty spectacular version of “Man Smart, Woman Smarter”. The band is having a grand ole time. Brent Mydland, the Dead’s greatest keyboard player, takes a verse – an unusual occurrence on this song. Bob Weir usually takes all the verses. And Brent’s verse is awesome! He puts so much passion into it. And you can see Jerry loving it. At about 1:35, he starts grinning, spins around, throws his arm up in the air, and spins around again, dancing back to the microphone. Watch it. It’s sweet. And infectious! But in a good way.
