find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 23, 1976
Tower Theatre Upper Darby, PA | Listen on archive
The crowd is obviously enjoying this version, and it adds to the already stellar piece of music...the band and crowd are one
Jerry is of course stellar but CHECK OUT KIETH. This show's hot!!
2The Music Never Stopped
Show opener preceeded by Yellow Dog Story, Great Bobby Donna Vocals Funky Jamming great start.
Nice long intro with cool soloing by Jerry, Stephen->NFA->Stephen->Dancin. Spacey Funk excellent stuff head candy
4Let It Grow
Another excellent jammy Let it grow from 1976, a good year for the song
Such a great year for high time here is another outstanding version, beautiful.
3Looks Like Rain
Real nice Bobby Donna duet, light and gorgeous.
4Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
another great version of this spacey new age jam.
3Dancin' in the Streets
another exploratory jammy improvisational Dancin from 1976. Great funky jam.
Jerry's voice is at his most elegant, showing some smoke. Keith is supremely intuitive and beautiful, the band goes higher and higher. Great version.
Fun, raucous, and rowdy, but full of tight ensemble jamming and a nice Bobby/Jerry balance, allowing you to hear Cowboy Bob's great backup work.
3Brown Eyed Women
Smooth and satisfying, rouses the crowd right up too. What a sweet show this is.
Keith and Jerry are manic pinball flippers bouncing their solos off each other here. Fun set closer.
2Samson and Delilah
More and more I'm convinced that the earliest Samsons are the best. So confident, so full of strut and swagger. Any other era with such consist force?
Overlooked! Comes out of a smokin' LIG and has that smokey, slinky, silky smolder of the best of '76.
Totally overlooked. One of the sweetest of the year. Rolls in at almost 6 min, closing a beaut set. I'm setting this to auto replay now. Check it out!
1Not Fade Away
A fucking great NFA with killer crowd support. Sometimes I love AUDs. & Garcia: looking for trouble. Aluminum Style.
