find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 18, 1977
Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
Just the one for me. I hold all others up to this standard. Others are great, but this one gets me everytime!
Clean, beautiful version. Jerry has some slick licks and Keith does some great work at the end
20Not Fade Away
Big ol' 20 min version from '77. This one peaks nicely
7Its All Over Now
Bobby absolutely owns this version. So powerful this version is!!
17Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Absolutely rockin' version. Mellow vocals to screaming peaks. Killer show opener!!
7New Minglewood Blues
Seems like the boys are trying to burn the Winterland down.
7Pretty Peggy O
Very pretty peggy-o.
absolute favorite version. Phil is grooving the whole time and jerry nails the lead work on the outro
best of '77. (also the shortest.) near-perfect execution, perfectly lazy groove, great vocals. what more do you need?
17Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
First time played together, and the boys nailed it!
15Around and Around
Can't believe this isn't here! All around one alltime best underrated show. Too many highlights, but around+around stands out as the absolute gem.
5Uncle John's Band
Beautiful piano; lovely vocals; the dynamics are great. And a lovely set-closer after that scorching "Around and Around".
