find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 19, 1973
Nassau Coliseum Uniondale, NY | Listen on archive
3China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
High energy! Please oh please where are the better sound quality versions? Where are the boards?
Archive copy sounds like its recorded through a tin can, but excellent groove, jam. For headphones only.
7Playin' In The Band
Headphones only (sound problems), but so worth it - liquid crystal lightning Jerry jaming at it's best. Deserves many listens.
11Eyes Of The World
Tight and right, with beautiful jamming and solid groupthink throughout. Headphones only for archive version: HELP US ON THIS ONE CHARLIE MILLER!!!
3The Other One
Complicated rising and falling arc to the energy, but great jam. Long Truckin>TOO>Eyes in a great 2nd set. Sound quality problems though.
3Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Early '73, classic
Wouldn't say this is a best version or anything, just a cool '73 version. Mississippi Half Step-> Stella Blue-> Jack Straw
4They Love Each Other
1Johnny B. Goode
Like a cool rain on a hot day.
Tribute to PIgpen, powerful and soulful. 2nd song of the show.
Swingin' and energetic version with a really cool Nobody's Fault But Mine jam
Delicate & Delightful : Charlie Miller 4,829 views
Such fun. Has a swagger and strut like the best, but a bit more fun and light. Thanks to C. Miller we can hear it now. Cheers, sir!
1Brown Eyed Women
Pristine rendition, now audible with thanks to C.Miller. This is a peak era Dead, with new sounds and balance even in the straight rockers.
Peak musicianship and total communication of the band at one of their most telepathic moments as a group. Jerry's vox is sublime.
1Box of Rain
1The Race Is On
Just exactly another fun version
Fresh version, vocals glide with some smooth plying
