You Choose: Morning Dew

Very close votes on the Terrapin and Eyes so far, just as I had hoped for :-) Thanks for the suggestions, I'm trying to find good AUD versions of those songs from different eras. If you are able to find any hot AUDs on The Archive that aren't on my Best Of list, please be sure to let me know, that will help enhance this effort for sure.

Anyway, moving on to today's You Choose. Your mission, if you accept it, is to select your favorite of two of the greatest Morning Dews recorded. The Cornell version is often referred to as the best, but some may like Pigpen-era version better. They are each special in their own way, but which one will You Choose...

You Choose: Eyes of the World

It's audience participation time once again. This time around, I'll be selecting two versions of a song, include links to the versions of the song, and you get to vote on your favorite! Since 'eyes' are kind of a theme on this blog, Eyes of the World is as good of a song as any to start with.

I'd invite any suggestions you might have for future 'You Choose' polls. The ground rules are that there must be two verisons of the same song from different eras, and they should be linkable from The Archive, meaning that they will likely need to be from an AUD source. This should be interesting, so without further aideu...
