find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 15, 1980
Nassau Coliseum Uniondale, NY | Listen on archive
20Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
they crush the combo so nicely
"Go To Nassau" version! Great vocals ("sun so *hot,* the clouds so low...") and there's that "click" moment at 4:50 when the band just starts rockin'
gotta love the cowbell!
Fantastic Jack Straw->Franklin's Tower to start the show.
7Far From Me
Go to Nassau version! These versions are all so similar, I just chose my favorite recording with it. Jerry's phaser runs are impressive!
10Pretty Peggy O
The lyrical sections are solid, nothing really stands out, BUT Jerry's solo is so freakin sweet. The ride is great & Phil and him segue back perfectly
Rippin' getaway, Phil Bomb-punctuated jam. 43rd version to be listed? C'mon! Go to Nassau and check it out.
5Not Fade Away
NFA>GDTLIE>Good Lovin- hot damn if that ain't a crowd pleasing dance-a-thon.
4Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
3Uncle John's Band
