find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 18, 1971
Fox Theatre St. Louis, MO | Listen on archive
14Ain't It Crazy (The Rub)
Great fun Pigpen song
2China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Another killer version, even with the cut in the tape this one never ceased to please!!!
6Me and My Uncle
As clear and pure an example of MAMU you'll ever here.
Toe-tappin' and up-tempo with great vocals - Phil sounds amazing on the out chorus. Fun stuff!
Soaring jam flirts with tipping into the outer void. Wild beauty with Pig on B3 gives it something extra.
6The Other One
Moves between super-charged hard rocker and an open-spaced delicate beauty. Marred by a cut, so how far did it really go? Anyone have the complete?
Surprised it isn't here yet. Only one in '71 and it intensely musical and weirdly experimental. Crashes into a short feedback/tuning then a sweet UJB.
Not super long but very tight and intense
3Greatest Story Ever Told
Different basic riff throughout...i like it.
3Not Fade Away
Excellent NFA>GDTRFB as expected for 71. Cool outros for both.
Nice rockin' 1971 version.
Not nearly enough love for this show.
2Me and Bobby McGee
Absolutely beautiful version. Amazed its been overlooked!
3Johnny B. Goode
Excellent mid second set choice.
Love ‘71 Losers
Very surprised this tasty selection from the "30 Trips" 1971 show is not here yet. Great start to a great show.
2Uncle John's Band
Long before "Let Phil Sing"
1Big Boss Man
Pig's harmonica playing and singing is great, and the rest of the band sounds just as good.
