find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead July 14, 1970
Euphoria Ballroom San Rafael, CA | Listen on archive
Acoustic, with David Crosby. Woah.
9New Speedway Boogie
w/Crosby - simply amazing version....love it!
5Deep Elem Blues
Jerry is really feeling it this night,another fun 70s accoustic set with the boys joined by David Crosby on a few numbers.
5How Long Blues
Only one I've heard on tape. Nice tune..
After some rowdy banter the good old GD pull out a magical beauty here. Acoustic fans shouldn't overlook this one!
6Friend of the Devil
Pretty unknown show, but this FoTD is just perfect. Some sound issues around the edges, but here Jer's voice is angelic and sweet.
Beautiful acoustic version. The whole first set is one exquisite jewel after another.
Very mellow cowboy ballad, like the great Nov. 8th '70 above. Check 'er out. They were experimenting with it here.
Great 1970 version, but the banter that precedes it and follows it is really worth hearing. It's pretty hilarious.
4The Other One
ATOMIC! Garcia's subversive wah work only makes the area less safe for the public.
Fantastic acoustic rendition of the tune
1China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Real neat and short early version of the combo. Worth checking out
Great long drawn out version out of a shorter Cryptical Envelopment Suite
