find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Oct. 27, 1990
The Zenith Paris, | Listen on archive
7China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
One of the best of the '90s and a personal Top 5. One of the best transition jams ever.
6Playin' In The Band
Blasting entrance out of CFingers, Loads of Phil veering the jam into outer space, Jerry and Phil lock into a stellar sick jam, the reprise out space
5Saint of Circumstance
Smoking St of Circumstance in Europe, this is stellar.
4New Minglewood Blues
This is a really emotional version, Viva la France!
played often on ths european tour this is my favorite of the several versions.
Gorgeous fragile beauty, this is wonderful beautiful peaceful magic.
9Ramble On Rose
Szechuan Jerry...he's all sweet and hot on this one from the 30 Trips box. Spicy!
5Black Throated Wind
A beaut of a version.
1990 was a great year for this tune and this was the best song of the first set at this epic show.
3Hell in a Bucket
Hard driving bucket with Bruce/Vince.
Classic Bucket>Sugaree pairing. Clocks in at 12 mins. Bruce is fantastic as usual.
This is exactly how it should be played.
2When I Paint My Masterpiece
Eloquent Jerry solo elevates this one unexpectedly.
1Eyes Of The World
Can't fathom how this A+ 90s version, with a gorgeous, relaxed tempo & delicate Garcia touches throughout hadn't made the list Great show, great EYES
1Not Fade Away
Hot version in gay Paris.
