find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Dec. 28, 1980
Oakland Auditorium Oakland, CA | Listen on archive
Nice Half Step->Franklin's tower opener gets the crowd up and moving
Nice hot ripping version to close the first set
All around great show and the Althea rips like the rest of murder's row from '80
Outstanding version. Check out that sweet little jam leading to drums at the end.
5Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Great opener along with the Franklin's. Jerry has some hot licks in this one.
A nice bouncy version with brent driving it. Bobs vocals are solid here too. There are so many great shows in this period that get passed over...
Bob does some interesting guitar on this. Don't pass this one by
2Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Very tight performance that’s still packed with holiday run excitement. The Miller/Clugston board sounds great for the era, too.
