find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 25, 1993
Dean Smith Center - University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, NC | Listen on archive
Solid and crispy. Check out the Lazy River Rd and Minglewood from the first set.
8New Minglewood Blues
What no love this version? Tight solo with nice crescendo at the end. Very Nice!
This has to be the best overall version from the Vince years. The boys are tight. Most true to the original The Band version.
7Wave to the Wind
Very clean version with nice soloing by Jerry (reminiscent of 73/74 Eyes) and strong Phil vocals.
4Touch of Grey
uptempo opener to a fine 1993 show
1Drums -> Space
not as amazing as the space from the previous night but still a very heady performance
5So Many Roads
This song seemed to bring out the best in Jerry's singing in the final years. This version's no different. And the guitar solo's lovely too.
3China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
If you haven't heard this one, check it out. One of the last truly great ones.
1Greatest Story Ever Told
Gritty Bobby vocals, good groove, great show.
Good guitar work from Jerry. Nice late day version.
1Friend of the Devil
Sparkling version with nice grizzled Jerry vocals.
Jerry floods this "Big River" with some tasty licks.
1992-93 was a very strong period for "Terrapin," and this version is no exception.
2The Other One
Could be longer, but what's here is spooky and fantastic. Great peak.
1Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Seriously funky version with great work from Jer.
