find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead April 1, 1988
Meadowlands Arena East Rutherford, NJ | Listen on archive
8To Lay Me Down
this one stands out
Really smooth version, despite some significant belly aching from Bobby mid song. Solid overall though
6Eyes Of The World
This standout version is out on a Road Trips.
Some missed lyrics but this is the version that does it for me. Jerry's solo on this hits perfectly
10Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
April fools '88! Very fun and rocking Mississippi Half Step. Note the band jamming 'little bunny foo-foo' before they go into it
5New Minglewood Blues
A smoking version on April Fools Day.
very good later rendition
2Let It Grow
the band is on
6When I Paint My Masterpiece
this version is my favorite
8The Other One
Uhh.....this is a SMOKER
awesome . period .
9China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
the china cat is very hot
Near set-ender from Road Trips, Vol. 4, No. 2
Nice stuff going on here, check it out.
9Ballad of a Thin Man
This one does it for me. Highlight of this first set.
Some of those stretched out vocals; jam is to the point, cutting through the rip tide
