find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 17, 1972
Hollywood Bowl Hollywood, CA | Listen on archive
1st time played. Also Pigpen's last show.
3The Other One
Last Pigpen, Super jammed-out and melty. How long between the killer organ chord after Phil's lead-in?? Maybe not until Brent.
This one has a great high-energy jam, and of course the Pig factor for the final time ever.
2Ramble On Rose
Truckin'->Other One->Ramble On Rose is an awesome sequence!
1Me and My Uncle
fine version back in the states from europe
Pig pEn's final show with the Grateful Dead, RIP Ron McKernan gone way before his time.
5Playin' In The Band
Wonderful post Europe 72 Playin, gets nice and out there rather quickly.
4China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Ripping fast paced and high energy. From a killer high octane first set.
3Black Throated Wind
Back from Europe with all the polish and power of a masterpiece: They've perfected the arc and emotional nuance. Miller cleanup is best (duh).
Solid rockin' version with a cruisin' pulse and tight ensemble playing at high energy.
All around solid version, and just listen to Jerry’s licks right before “last fair deal”
