Manchild: Best Unknown Jerry Song

I love this song.  Played on Heavy Turbulence and Fire Up. Never played live as far as I know except for
8/5/73 Boarding House, San Francisco, CA
II: The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, That's All Right Mama, Expressway, Money Honey, Man-Child, After Midnight, How Sweet It Is 
(Bill Kreutzmann substitutes on drums; incomplete)   Which is actually 12-5-1972 thanks to JGMF 
Jan 17, 2010 ... Thank God whomever is taping changed batteries or whatever for what comes next, because it is a truly monumental "Man-Child," the Merl ...
Jun 21, 2010 ... ... from the period, such as "Save Mother Earth" and "Man-Child" achieved a real inner city vibe, whatever the socioeconomics of the players.

So 9-24-71, 1-15-72, 1-20-72, and 8-5-73 (which is 12-5-72) at least
Live versions I am getting will be available here today (just wait)

. Love yourself some Merl and Jerry today. While you listen to the 12 minute LP version, I recommend turning on the soundcloud below for the 32 minutes January 1972 live version:
