find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Aug. 7, 1982
Alpine Valley Music Theatre East Troy, WI | Listen on archive
22The Music Never Stopped
Nice TMNS > Sugaree > TMNS sandy to open the show. Good stuff
30China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Sick Sick Sick Sick transition!!!!!!!
Lilkewise. Can't believe this one isn't listed. Space->Wheel->Playin'-> Dew. Incredible.
If I had to explain what an intense trip is like, I would condense it into this Space->Wheel combo.
An intense trip that peaks -- then cascades peacefully into The Wheel
14Let It Grow
Dick's Picks, Vol. 32. One of my favorite versions of the '80s.
9C. C. Rider
Great version at Alpine
Jerry's on and so is Phil.
9Ship of Fools
Very emotive and great keyboards.
Sandwiched between a Music Never Stopped, this Sugaree has a heavenly jam. The whole band is on, and Mickey sounds great.
10On The Road Again
Definitive for me!
Blistering version from Alpine! Everyone is firing on this one. Brent throws down too.
6Playin' In The Band
An '82 vintage Playin' sandwich that finds the boys playin' in fine form. DP 32.
5Drums -> Space
Billy and Mickey play together like they were a big octopus on this one. 'The Wheel' comes rolling nicely out of 'Space'. Altogether, a G-rated D>P.
4It Must Have Been The Roses
Beautiful delicate sweet IMHBTR
4Ramble On Rose
Crisp and popping. Gorgeous show DP 32
8One More Saturday Night
hyperactive warp speed version.
4U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Rocking version with a real nice swing, this august 1982 run is fantastc and loaded with gems throughout.
