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
74China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Tremendous transition into a tender Rider with moments of pure bliss! This show is amazing!!!
40Ramble On Rose
Beautiful tender version. Jerry is spectacular!
17Me and Bobby McGee
One of the best versions I've heard, super jazzy!
77Eyes 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!!
9Greatest Story Ever Told
Bob's voice was strong and on pitch, Phil's presence was strong and dig that sound from Jerry's guitar!!
38Mind 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
21Weather Report Suite
KILLER ultra-jazzy jams from Garcia. An all around classic show.
11Uncle 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!!!
10Black Throated Wind
A cool version from a great show.
20To Lay Me Down
A standout version from a great show.
6Me 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!
4Johnny B. Goode
Cowabunga, dude - this is smokin' hot!!!
