find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Oct. 14, 1977
Hofheinz Pavilion Houston, TX | Listen on archive
2New Minglewood Blues
Thunderous! Everybody on point. Fierce weir vocals, crunchy lesh, Jerry rippin', kieth and the drum boyz pounding away
12Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Very nice version
6Playin' In The Band
Starts out floating and drifing, but picks up a serious head of stream before the transition...
Possibly the most underrated version of all time with an absolute MONSTER jam by Jerry. Must listen!
Jerry is on fire
1Friend of the Devil
Jerry plays with extrodinary feeling, especially in 2nd half where energy builds nicely with the whole band feelin it!
I'm usually not the biggest fan of the "disco-fied" cowboy songs, but this one delivers the goods. Of course it's from Texas.
Stunning rendition from Texas in the Fall of '77. Gorgeous harmonies from Donna. Mystic transition into a Playing reprise.
Both Jerry solos are absolutely transcendental. Probably my new favorite version of the year.
Reminiscent of another favorite version, 5/19/77. I love when Wheel comes out of Drums, adds an extra dimension. The whole Playing> sequence is sweet.
You Gotta be KIDDING ME!! I came here to vote for this totally awesome Bertha and it's not even listed yet? This Bertha Made Peace in the Middle East!

Hangs with the pack/ carries its own torch
