find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 9, 1977
War Memorial Buffalo, NY | Listen on archive
73The Music Never Stopped
End to the first set. Gets really fast and insane for the ending peak
57Comes A Time
74Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
After cornell, duh.
2Friend of the Devil
nice '77 usually cut on the tapes
Good solo, good vocals
Nice version, good quality recording... Hard to find Franklin's Tower
28Ship of Fools
Perfection. The "comes a time" for this show gets all the attention but this SOF is just as grand
40Pretty Peggy O
Surprised this one isn't listed here already - it's achingly beautiful.
Out of a fantastic second set. Caps it off beautifully and with force
19Brown Eyed Women
better than Cornell? I think so at least;)
One of the best versions I have ever heard. Give it a listen! Crazy Good.
They just could do no wrong at this show, Hidden among all the other gems is this monster River. Big solo work by Jerry; nice fills by Keith.
what can you say it's from May '77
short but incredibly sweet.
8The Other One
A fairly short version, but don't let the time fool you, this version is as intense as they come. Its to wonder how they could make this up on the fly
Definitely belongs on the list
Jerry's instrumental jam is short but sweet.
7Uncle John's Band
cruelly overlooked encore to a classic show...hot jam section, reminiscent of '68...deserves to be heard
