tough match up here both versions absolutely kick ass, transcendent, MSG is just a little bit better.

Definitely a tough choice, but I gotta go Hershey. Even if you take away the ridiculous segue into Paug, I still think Hershey comes it ahead Mike-o a Mike-o.

Rules. Your. Face.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

As much love as I have for MSG and its myriad distinct jam sections, Hershey also gets points for jamming variety but it also has more intensity, more energy.

Both are an absolute pleasure to listen to. This was a tough call. But I went Hershey.

12/31/95.  When you also consider that it segues between sets, that wins it. 

Although Hershey rules too. 

Either way, make it a Mike's

Shopworn rules your face comments aside, ever notice that singing Weekapaug in the wrong key doesn't really work?

Trey did.

Also, 12-31 for the DDJ> ambient outro. 

Also, also, it's tied beyotches!

12-31-95 is losing?   Has the whole world gone insane?

Seriously if you haven't yet, listen to them both back to back, it makes for quite an hour of listening.

Listening to 12/31, the word nefarious comes to mind
