find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Dec. 1, 1973
Music Hall Boston, MA | Listen on archive
9Playin' In The Band
Outrageous oversight that this crystal clear beauty isn't here. Bobby's vocals, brilliant ensemble playing, glorious UJB in the sandwich. DIG IT!!!
5They Love Each Other
Great version, yeah its Boston '73. But probably the best Stage Banter ever: Check out 09:49 explaining why they aren't going to play St. Stephen.
8Uncle John's Band
Righteous beauty from probably the most seriously overlooked show from '73 (surrounded by the big beasts in Boston) inside a Playin' just soooo good.
Unbelivable that a tune this heady could appear in set 1 the magic of 1973
4Greatest Story Ever Told
Hidden gem before my time
6China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
How is this not listed!! Phil bombs away!! The whole band is rollicking here. I think its just an all around fantastic version.
Nice mellow reading very different feel to it. Keith is outstanding.
3One More Saturday Night
Really killer cherry on top of a great show
2Me and Bobby McGee
This is a top version
1Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
What is this, chopped liver?
2Not Fade Away
1Me and My Uncle
Hot throughout. "Go back to your seats"
1Don't Ease Me In
Can't not put this on here
1Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Has a little bit of everything.
Slow and mellow
1Let It Grow
Awesome version, Jerry's clean tone still rips this one open as a penultimate Set 1 triumph!
