Grateful Dead Dec. 5, 1969

Fillmore West San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive

Users have designated the following versions as heady!
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Coming out of "The Main Ten" (which became the Playin' reprise segue), this is a long, slow, emotional and beautiful Baby Blue. A wrinkle in time.
Cosmic Charlie
Very well played and sung! Pity about the audience member humming along out of tune, but otherwise a fine ’69 AUD.
Dancin' in the Streets
High-velocity, high-power jamming magic, all packed into less than nine minutes. Intense. From a wonderful overlooked show.
Black Peter
Practically flawless early version played with focus and intensity.
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Exploratory transition jam! Very different from most early versions. Has that anarchic ’60s energy.
Casey Jones
unique, spacious laid back Jerry from a great night in 69
Cryptical Envelopment
beautifully played start to finish, interesting jam in the reprise
