find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 1, 1977
The Palladium New York, NY | Listen on archive
8Dancin' in the Streets
7Brown Eyed Women
Crowd responds to this version very favoribly so much so that both Lesh and Garcia say "Thank You" after it.
12Comes A Time
3Might As Well
Just another great performance from this month.
A bit slower than the others I’ve heard from this month, and I think the song works better this way.
2They Love Each Other
Jerry blows a verse, but the solo is good. Nice playing from Keith.
3Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Great Phil rips, nice vocal harmonies. Nice soloing on “Supplication.”
3It Must Have Been The Roses
Lovely playing and singing from Jerry, and Keith is all over this first set.
Dig into this nice first set "Estimated." Phil joins in on riffing on the main riff, which I’ve not heard before on this tour. Nice solo.
One of the best versions I've ever heard, even with the not-so-great AUD.
6Playin' In The Band
Heady "PITB > Drums > TOO > Comes a Time > PITB."
5The Other One
Never really expands beyond the song’s material, but hard and well-played. Hear in context of set 2.
3Ramble On Rose
the crowd in the aud is worth it. the recation when jerry sings "just like new york city" no wonder they always loved nyc
jerrys lead is so low key until the walk up at the end, you know the part i mean. billy, billy, billy, billy,
2Samson and Delilah
Nice ending to set one slightly funky feel crisp 1977 version.
Fuckin' awesome drum sequence that follows Playin' and leads into The Other One, Lots of energy in this second set!
