find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 21, 1973
Utica Memorial Auditorium Utica, NY | Listen on archive
Awesome jazzy Star from an underrated show
5Here Comes Sunshine
4China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Snazzy light and tight. China's melody is a traipsing psychadelic counterpoint, a perfect trans into Rider. Good vibes.
11Playin' In The Band
Exploratory simmering energy. Phil and Jerry co-soloing on a high plane of endless inspiration. Not a barn-burner, but smooth and abstract.
Musical and sweet with great harmonies. Brilliant show with many great, mellow versions of their '73 setlist.
The sugar's sweet - but the daydream just blows everything else away with joy.
4Greatest Story Ever Told
Keith & Donna do their thing, and Jerry gets in some nasty licks. Jam at the end is sick.
Typically strong Jed from 73'
7Eyes Of The World
Another HUGE version from a year jam packed with em'. Dark Star>Eyes, check this one out.
1They Love Each Other
Set 2 Version
3They Love Each Other
Set 2 Version
2You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
Another tight version.
Jerry low in the mix but is ripping it up, Keith really shines in this one, doesn’t miss a note
2Me and My Uncle
Really dig jerry here
1U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Keiths all over this one- Boogie woogie piano.
1Looks Like Rain
Bobby's voice sounds so delicate.
Nice smooth early version. Needs some love.
Love Bobby's tone.
Fast and free!
1Take A Step Back
After Brown Eyed Women. Phil's wailin'
1Weather Report Suite
Transitions into dark star
Jerry's vocals cut out at times during the first half but this is an amazing chill and soulful that deserves some attention.
