find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Feb. 17, 1973
St. Paul Auditorium St. Paul, MN | Listen on archive
21Here Comes Sunshine
Here Comes Sunshine>China Cat>Rider!! The transition into China Cat is seamless. How was this not a regular trio???
12Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Lots of energy, they're basically yelling the chorus at the end.
5You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man
This version of a fun Loretta Lynn song is mandatory listening for any serious Donna fan!
Very nice Garcia fretwork. Intense yet breezy, if that makes sense...
Third time performed and still a bit loose in the joints, but tighter and funkier than Dane County 2 days earlier.
8Playin' In The Band
Mindblowing jams reminiscent of the massive '72s. Check out Jer and Phil interplay around 10:00.
Just beautiful 2nd set opener. This show doesn't get the attention it deserves! Solid jamming.
A sweet, crystal clear version (3rd performance ever). Beautiful Bobby behind Jer's strong vocal, even Donna's great. Unfortunate cut around 6:00.
12China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Seemless out of a perfect Here Comes Sunshine. Epic flow, up-tempo, great sounding and flawless jams. What more can a Head need?
3Box of Rain
So sublimely executed, Jerry adding awesome textures and the Godchauxes bringing the song to new levels!
Pure Jerry on the vocals here - starts out deliberate and then goes for a slow long burn on the end - sweet.
2They Love Each Other
thrd time out a beauty. underrated show
3U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Wave That Flag
a little piece of mexico in the twin cities on this evening
1Looks Like Rain
Keith steps in when Jerry's guitar channel literally dies. Very nice, Mr. Godchaux.
1Me and Bobby McGee
Beautiful solo; all else being equal that's what matters most...
