find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Aug. 19, 1970
Fillmore West San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
3How Long Blues
Warm audience recording, mystery piano player (Lagin, maybe?)
Grisman takes this one into hoedown territory
Ripple>Brokedown Palace, interesting piano during intro
Acoustic Truckin', with mystery piano player (Maybe Lagin, Nelson or the Loch Ness Monster for all I know - it just sounds great)
2Wake Up Little Susie
I so wish they played this sweet gem more often a classic song with an awesome grateful dead spin.
4Cocaine Habit Blues
Recording is not the best but it is a rare nugget and the music sounds trippy for an acoustic set.
3Turn On Your Love Light
Truly an amazingly awesome version, with special guest David Crosby on guitar. A real true heady version with dead friend Crosby helping out the boys
2Monkey and the Engineer
Nice, clear, mellow version.
2Not Fade Away
Sounds suspiciously and happily similar to the 6/24/70 version. Firing on all cylinders.
3Friend of the Devil
Early uptempo, shitkickingly good. These first ones are all worth mentioning. This one is fast and good bluegrass.
Undoubtedly one of the greats. Everyone is on. Bobby solos, then Jerry schools the world, then at 7:03 sounds like D. Crosby steps in like Godzilla.
2New Speedway Boogie
Love this in 70
wonderful rarity, recording isn't the greatest but it is listenable.
1Swing Low Sweet Chariot
another rare beauty, recording a little rough but worth the effort.
what a great old nugget, love the drums on this version.
slightly rough recording but worth the effort, hot guitar tone from Jerry!!!!
Early Sugar Mags this is great paced a little different than later, Really cool sounding. Recording not the greatest quality.
lov the mini acoustic jam in this version.
