find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Jan. 23, 1970
Honolulu Civic Auditorium Honolulu, HI | Listen on archive
8China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
January 1970...Hawaii...what more could anyone hope for?
funny Jerry banter...hot music this whole show
20Turn On Your Love Light
Another great 1970 Lovelight, if you don’t know this show, spin it. Very mellow island vibe, great Lovelight to close.
13The Other One
Other One > Dark Star > St. Stephen > Lovelight
Relaxed auditory quaalude that finds a little fire at the end. Constanten's last as a member of the band.
Powerful vocals and a tight sound in front of what sounds like only 100 people.
Relaxed (Hawaii, natch) vibe without a Pig rap, but the band sounds just outta sight and Pig is on. Good times here.
6Hard to Handle
Classic "single" version, meaning shorter and more compact than the '71 hyperspace megas.
A different chill kinda Hawaii Cryptical...cool version with some heat at the end...not 2/13, tho!
Cranky clanky crankity sweet Garcia tones.
St. Stephen in Honolulu Hawaii, has a rather mellow approach for a 1970 Stephen.
