find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead July 21, 1974
Hollywood Bowl Hollywood, CA | Listen on archive
As sweet as it gets
Perhaps not the best, but has great psychedelic dripping at the end
5Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Half Step->Roses...wonderfully executed and captured nicely w/ an AUD recording...Wall of Sound
5It Must Have Been The Roses
Out of a sweet Half-Step and into oblivion, Weir and Keith really shine
Jerry and Bob are off the hook flying off the handle going for it! Prime time stuff
12China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Warning: May cause goosebumps. Bertrando's AUD is VG+.
12Playin' In The Band
You'll hear voices and see faces in this abstract assault which showcases exceptional group interplay. Bertrando's AUD is VG+.
Gorgeous, well-paced high energy version. Playin'>Wharf>Truckin'>NFBM (theme only)>Playin' reprise
The high energy middle of a spacey, jammy, Wall of Sound sammich
5Ship of Fools
Just wonderful version
2U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Hot hot hot!
3Around and Around
Fully rockin' blowout to close a lovely summertime 1st set: Not my favorite song, but this one really kicks.
Phil & Ned: By far the most compact and Space-like. Gargantuan Martian landscapes and insect-shaped UFOs. Sounds like Frippertronics. Heavy stuff.
Great version, perfect FOB ECM22P recording.
3Me and My Uncle
More '74 perfection, Jerry solo is worth a listen. Great FOB recording.
Great version, not the longest but it's still great. Phil sounds nice on this FOB recording.
