find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 11, 1972
Rotterdam Civic Hall Rotterdam, | Listen on archive
47 minutes, nuts
leads into Uncle Johns Band. Great performance, great show
Scorching after a long DS!
14Two Souls in Communion
I think all the Europe72 versions are stellar but this is my favorite but 5-10 is a better source
17Playin' In The Band
Sometimes shorter is better. At around 10 mins. this beauty from E'72 packs the jazz, jam, passion. Like a more intense version of the one on ACE!
10Me and My Uncle
A smokin' version.
9Big Railroad Blues
So rippin' good. Get your Jerry on.
One knows from Jerry's opening vocals "cost a lot to win" sung with extra twang, that it's gonna be rockin' with that good county, funky vibe.
8Black Throated Wind
Great fills from Keith in this one. Jerry tackles the descending final guitar notes beautifully as well
Laid back version! I know: It's not the headiness of 1977, but it's a fine representation of the song in its earlier stages!
8Hurts Me Too
Supplements Top 5 show of all time.
Best version from europe 72 at the best europe 72 show.
Totally confused why this is not listed. Great caution at top 5 show of all time.
4Who Do You Love
Final who do u love at is top 5 show of all time and the best of Europe 72.
Everything is golden from this show, even Mr. Charlie.
Don't need to say much more than Rotterdam
13China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Silky smooth version
Classic version at epic show
Hard hitting closer of first set at epic Rotterdam.
3Next Time You See Me
2nd best of the tour and the tune right before the epic 47 minute DS.
Nice, tight version of a new American folk song.
It sounds like the boys gave a little extra on these "American" songs for their European fans.
6Beat it on Down The Line
From an all-around great show (the extra accent in the count-in must have caused some smiles)
5Brown Eyed Women
I know this song was played every night durin E72, but this one is certainly worthy. Love Bob's work on this one.
6Uncle John's Band
An epic closing to possibly one of the most interesting shows of all time.
5One More Saturday Night
great encore to one of Europe's best shows
Sweet drums workout is part of one of the hottest longest dark stars of all time Spacey Heady stuff
3Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Lots of good vibes coming from this one, Jerry is smooth as ever.
