find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 18, 1967
Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
12Cream Puff War
Last known live performance
13Me and My Uncle
Very unique, dark version. Clearly under the influence during this rendition. Love the angry-terse tone of Phils voice.
20Dancin' in the Streets
Excellent early version. The jam in the middle is a fine bit of acid rock.
19The Same Thing
Blues Power!!! Jam just keeps building and building, and is funky as hell!
25Viola Lee Blues
Are you kidding me? This is just blazingly good. Jerry's on fire, vocals and axe. Too good for words.
7Beat it on Down The Line
Surf Punk! Never thought I'd hear California surfer thrash so clearly in the Dead, but here it is: Bobby as primordial punk rocker? Why not?
4Cold Rain and Snow
Solid and tough, Phil getting more creative too.
4Next Time You See Me
Hot little blues number.
5He Was A Friend of Mine
This whole show just smokes.
3Hurts Me Too
More good blues from this great early show. Check out Pig's harp solo too.
8The Golden Road (to unlimited devotion)
One of the first Dead songs I ever heard way back in the day. Kicks off a raging Set II.
4Death Don't Have No Mercy
Surprised not to find this here.
