find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Feb. 26, 1977
Swing Auditorium San Bernardino, CA | Listen on archive
83Playin' In The Band
Thoughtful first set closer. Spacey wheel sandwich. One of my favorites.
40Dancin' in the Streets
34New Minglewood Blues
They nailed the first one ever
48Eyes Of The World
54They Love Each Other
12All New Minglewood Blues
Updated Minglewood review, same show as Terrapin debuted. Sounds clean & tight!
84Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
If there's another Wheel like this one, I haven't heard it. Unique loaded w/dynamics and little Bill/Mickey shuffles. Goes back>PitB...in the 1st set!
19Samson and Delilah
Pacing and perfected-dance-shuffling the rhythm section w/Bobby fills and Jer's all-over-the-fretboard attack make this a definitive A+ version.
Arriving t'ween Samson & tMNS, this justifiably famous Jed (much discussed b.i.t.tape days) can be enjoyed repeatedly. Squeeze out those squeakers Jer
15Around and Around
Really, you cannot describe this rocker in words... You must listen.
24The Music Never Stopped
get the snb betty board. Keith and Jerry really mesh. falling downstairs collapsing at end of song is great . first show of 77.
Mostly because it's a favorite version and it isn't listed here. Solid version & great recording make it an honorable mention at the very least.
3 rockin instrumental breaks on this great version from the Swing.
WHAO! Did everybody miss this version? Short and sweet, HIGH Energy version.
Great version, suprised not to see it on the list
2U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Great encore to end a legendary show! One of the best in '77
