find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Feb. 14, 1970
Fillmore East New York, NY | Listen on archive
Crisp, clean, clear, Garcia's voice is still pure and prolific.
36Not Fade Away
Heavy NFA jam including a stunning Big You Goodnight theme. One of the best.
Tight and Raging
8I've Been All Around This World
Great Bear's Choice version
A legendary run of Alligator->Drums->Me And My Uncleot Fade Away->Mason's Children->Caution->Feedback->We Bid You Goodnight.
5And We Bid You Goodnight
A standout version from a great show.
Early show has a great Dark Star.
9Me and My Uncle
Late show: Alligator->Drums->Me And My Uncle->Not Fade Away->Mason's Children->Caution->Feedback->We Bid You Goodnight!
A nice run of China Cat Sunflower->I Know You Rider->High Time->Dire Wolf.
6Hard to Handle
The Bear's Choice version.
From Dick's Picks 4. Crunchy, stoked up tear. Opening tune of a legendary show.
4Dancin' in the Streets
How is this not on here? All you really have to say is 2/14/70, but with that being said...this one is epic.
3Turn On Your Love Light
A Lovelight on Valentine's Day? Pig and the band tear it up.
2Wake Up Little Susie
This song is always a treat on a 1970 acoustic set. Wish they had played it in the 1980 or other years, acoustic sets.
Why not here yet? This show has it all, and this Eleven just slays it. Balls out, high-energy jams from everyone.
As beautiful as they come.
In spite of a bit of tape wobble, this is an otherwise pristine version, with everyone keyed up right. A tight solo and a fun time.
5China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
How is this not here?? Dicks picks 4... a classic primal china>rider no doubt.
Following a very hot caution and leading into AWBYG, sublime
1Cold Rain and Snow
Intimate version. Bob is high in the mix and brilliant. Vocals are living room intimate. Band is listening to itself in heartrending fashion.
