|1988-02-24||Waitsfield, VT||6:25||John Carlton on drums and Fishman on trombone. Fish is actually pretty damned good! Awesome vocal jam. Check it out!|
|1988-06-20||Burlington, VT||9:00||High power bridge with some great Trey. Long vocal jam with more animal-like screams, howls and other weird sounds.|
|1988-07-12||Burlington, VT||9:54||Extended bridge with some great Page/Trey interplay. Long vocal jam is "YEM"-like, it gets way beyond "Sally." Must-hear, it's crazy.|
|1988-07-24||Burlington, VT||8:33||Bridge starts with some great Page, then it's Machine Gun Trey's turn. Very good interplay between the two. Another long and excellent vocal jam.|
|1997-12-30||New York, NY||9:52||First performance in 920 shows, opens first set of a highly regarded show. Nice '97 style funk/rock groove follows the lyrical section. A very unhurried, patient feel to this one. -> to "Taste", and is reprised and finished in the 4-part funk-fest encore.|
|1997-12-30||New York, NY||4:58||In from BEK ->, the second "Sneakin' Sally" of this fan favorite show functions as a funky reprisal of the major bust-out that opened the evening's festivities. Jumps right into a jammed-out show-closing > Frankenstein.|
|1998-04-02||Uniondale, NY||12:39||-> in from "Wolfman's Brother." A heavy funk groove breaks out following the lyrical section with some great Fishman percussion. Great collective playing as the jam progresses and segues -> into "Frankie Says."|
|1998-07-28||Bonner Springs, KS||9:35||Rocking bridge. A very subtle vocal jam can be heard from 5:33 - 6:55. A great rhythmic, "Manteca"-like jam continues following the (non) vocal jam.|
|1998-08-08||Columbia, MD||11:15||A really great funky, but low key, jam emerges on the back end of "Sally." -> to "Guyute."|
|1998-10-31||Las Vegas, NV||10:56||Funky '98-style jam emerges, where Page on clavinet is the star. Rocks along until morphing into some more ambient, serene space, before a fantastic -> to "CDT."|
|1999-07-07||Charlotte, NC||12:03||With a digital delay loop running in the background, Page and Fish crank up a nice rhythmic jam that grows very quiet in the final minutes before dissolving completely.|
|1999-07-17||Volney, NY||9:40||-> in from "Wolfman's Brother." Great relaxed jam emerges from the back end of this "Sally." Gathers energy with Page and Trey adding nicely to a solid Mike/Fish groove. > to "Timber (Jerry)."|
|1999-09-28||Pelham, AL||8:54||Swirling, funky and laid back jam in this "Sally."|
|2003-07-23||Noblesville, IN||15:34||First post Hiatus performance. Band breaks into a very rhythmic, though not overly percussive jam coming out of "Sally" proper. Mildly funky, this version has a somewhat dark sentiment, and builds energy near the end.|
|2004-08-12||Camden, NJ||10:54||> in from "Piper." Similar to 7/17/99, where an easy-going groove picks up steam and energy by the conclusion.|
|2009-08-07||George, WA||17:50||First 3.0 version is a monster. The most exploratory version to date. At first funky and snappy, it soon stretches beyond anything like "Sally." From there (about 11:00), it quiets into serene, beautiful space, and then regains momentum, reminiscent of the big Albany "Seven Below" that would follow months later. Must-hear.|
|2011-06-04||Cuyahoga Falls, OH||13:03||Following the vocal jam, the band breaks into a funky groove with a very 2011 sound to it (a bit of the staccato or "plinko" funk, somewhat similar to the 12/28/11 "Cities") that eventually gets "Manteca"-esque before dissolving into a spacey jam. > to "Harry Hood," a highly acclaimed combo among fans.|
|2012-07-06||Saratoga Springs, NY||13:02||> in from "PYITE." A great, rocking, upbeat, and multi-part jam follows the vocal jam. > to "Ghost."|
|2012-08-19||San Francisco, CA||10:51||-> in from "Light." Fish and Mike lay down a great base, and Page and Trey play off this in a spirited upbeat jam. The intensity grows before a segue (->) to a reprise of "Crosseyed And Painless."|
|2013-07-27||George, WA||12:22||-> in from "Light." Although largely "Type I" jamming, this is a solid rocking version with great instrumentation.|
|2013-11-01||Atlantic City, NJ||11:06||A solid and funkified breakdown jam follows a good vocal jam and includes Trey banter near the ending.|
|2015-01-03||Miami, FL||9:51||-> in from "Light". A minute-long vocal jam pushes into a more upbeat, rocking section led by Trey and Fish, before settling in murkier waters that lead to > Sand.|
|2016-07-18||San Francisco, CA||17:56||The special nature of this "Sally" unfolds after the vocal jam, and rather than peaking at its conclusion, the jam continues to build, with full-band play informing a perfect blend of rhythm and harmony. Excellent musicianship modulates in intensity, before pulsing, high energy rock cycles up to a euphoric peak.|
|2023-04-22||Hollywood, CA||10:25||> from "2001". Eschewing the vocal jam, Sally gets the extended treatment for the first time in years. Mike's play shines through from the beginning as he leads the groove-based jam. The tempo gradually picks up, before > "Back on the Train".|
