find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 11, 1973
Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
Great version from the early days. Full of feeling in Jerry's voice at the end.
The meld into Mind Left Body Jam is sublime
78China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Tremendous transition into a tender Rider with moments of pure bliss! This show is amazing!!!
44Ramble On Rose
Beautiful tender version. Jerry is spectacular!
18Me and Bobby McGee
One of the best versions I've heard, super jazzy!
81Eyes Of The World
One of the coolest Dark Star>Mind Left Body Jam>Eyes you will hear. Listen!
If every version sounded this jazzy, it would have a better following. Great tempo and Bill is so tight!!
It's all about Jerry. What a night he gave Winterland this evening!!
12Greatest Story Ever Told
Bob's voice was strong and on pitch, Phil's presence was strong and dig that sound from Jerry's guitar!!
40Mind Left Body Jam
This version is so silky and smooth, you just want to float away...
They are in the zone on this date... Recording gets some fuzz, but I think the energy happenin' was too much for the equipment, LOL
Yep...too rocking a tune to be ignored. Hard to beat this one, especially as kick-off of trio: Promised>Bertha>GSET
22Weather Report Suite
KILLER ultra-jazzy jams from Garcia. An all around classic show.
13Uncle John's Band
Just about as beautiful as this song can get
OMG! Most intense Sugar Mag jam ever! Jerry WILL NOT QUIT. Vocal entrance is real sloppy, but it hardly matters - you MUST hear this!!!
12Black Throated Wind
A cool version from a great show.
22To Lay Me Down
A standout version from a great show.
7Me and My Uncle
Killer version from Winterland '73 box.
5And We Bid You Goodnight
Good version of this short number
You know this was going to be a good night with a smokin Promised land>Bertha.
The most rollicking, rolling manic version of this song I've ever heard. Gotta be the best!
7Johnny B. Goode
Cowabunga, dude - this is smokin' hot!!!
