find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 12, 1966
Danish Center Los Angeles, CA | Listen on archive
A standout version from a great show.
4Hey Little One
Rare Cuts and Oddities version.
3Viola Lee Blues
Acid test, date is possibly wrong according to some people. The performance is a butt kicker.
Really bluesy, love the Guild Starfire sound Jer had here. Flows into a groovy early Caution.
Pigpen drives hard here, harmonica all the way. Early fireball, only giving us a glimpse of what Caution would turn into in only a year!
1Beat it on Down The Line
This could have been the debute of this song. A very young Bobby is kind of yelling it. It's interesting to hear how these early covers evolved.
