find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Oct. 22, 1983
Carrier Dome, Syracuse U Syracuse, NY | Listen on archive
Jerry starts the entry licks and slowly builds it for 3 mins until he bounces into it. Longest entry I've heard - love it.
I am still trying to understand why this is missed by folks. Absolute beauty, magic and an example of everything coming together.
5Wang Dang Doodle
The boys really "throw a mess" on this one, making the carrier dome sound like a down and dirty old time saloon. Slinky sick stuff
5China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
This cooks hot.
Rarity third time played
Phildown St. opener in the ginormo dome at Syrabuse. Phil makes this one groovy.
So why this song? The journey? Well it's right here in spades. Aces!
Fantastic, has a great swing, love Jerry's solo almost sounds like its bubbling out from underwater at times, Phil lays some nice bombs to play onto
2New Minglewood Blues
Nice and slinky bluesy jam. HOT!
Spittin' politics at the college kids then they scare them with the jam - nice and darkish.
1Hell in a Bucket
Cool stuff right here. Early bucket with tons of Bobby energy.
1Keep Your Day Job
underrated tune and show
Downright damaging on liquid from about the 5:50 mark...don't go there unless you can handle it.
2Man Smart, Woman Smarter
Great licks, tight solid version in a great second set .
