find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Feb. 27, 1969
Fillmore West San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
A breathtakingly emotive performance.
15Mountains of the Moon
Incredibly beautiful no other way to put it
25The Other One
OK, so this gets pretty overshadowed by the other heavy-hitter of this show, but this That's It... suite is one of the hottest ever!
Killer LiveDead era version.
How could no one include the LIVE/DEAD version????? Classic and a keeper!
A particularly jazzy version; Jerry is ablaze and climbing to enormous heights.
3Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Tight, solid version. Some nice harmonica playing from Pigpen.
After THE Dark Star and probably the best St. Stephen. How is this not here?
5Doin' That Rag
pure psychedelic energy
4Dupree's Diamond Blues
This begins a set that goes Dupree's, Mountains->Dark Star->St.Stephen->The Eleven->Lovelight->Cosmic Charlie. Each song is a definitive version.
1Death Don't Have No Mercy
This is the one. Jerry shows what he learned from Janis vocally on this one. Just dripping with emotion.
