Head bolt grease

Getting ready to attach new head gasket and head. What type of grease do I place on bolts? I'm getting variety of answers and I guess this is quite important in terms of torque trueness. Manual mentions moly , will any anti seize work? How about just regular grease?
Thanks

if the manual calls for Moly why would you use something else? 8-)
