find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 28, 1976
Auditorium Theatre Chicago, IL | Listen on archive
8Eyes Of The World
Knowing how epic the following date is, Im surprised I wasn't aware of this...nice long 6' intro and transition into Fire w/o words
Awesome drums and keys
2The Music Never Stopped
Very tight, great transitions.
Powerfl and relaxed, a beautiful version following the cosmic craziness that occured before it Eyes->Drums->Happiness is drumming-> Wharf Rat. Unique
4Dancin' in the Streets
another heady funky dancing, great donna on this one, June of 76 Bobby plays almost same songs nightly butthey sound inspired and fresh,amazing feat.
one of my favorite from back in the days of tapes.
8Fire On The Mountain
This "Happiness is Drumming," (Hart) is proto-Fire, i.e., FOTM (Hart-Hunter) without lyrics.
Up and jumping show opener from the first note. Keith's solo is brilliant.
2Looks Like Rain
Brilliant rise to a climactic finish. Jerry soloing like a man possessed behind sweet Bobby/Donna '76 harmonies. Nice one.
1Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
High energy and zigzagging, this is a fast one. Supplication is tons of fun, even if they don't quite stick the landing.
3Not Fade Away
Beautiful a capella outro here and check out Bobby's polyrythmic harmolodism during the last solo section for a treat.
2They Love Each Other
If you like the '76 sound..
That spacious, unadorned June 1976 sound is so perfect for The Wheel. This one's dynamic and delivered with feeling. Cool show.
