find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Oct. 20, 1974
Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
This is the unheralded version. The whole show is like chamber music. This is the best TJ solo Jerry ever played. It is incredibly well conceived.
Harmonies aligned, soul pouring out in sultry dripping guitar tones, Could it possibly get any better than this?
4Cold Rain and Snow
A different arrangement and the only one from '74.
A nice hypnotic version.
1Johnny B. Goode
As seen in the GD Movie!
1Around and Around
Nice strong version!
8Playin' In The Band
Nice Playing strech with Mickey sitting in for the first time since 2-18-71.
4It Must Have Been The Roses
A lovely version.
18China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Final "Feelin' Groovy" jam :( but it's a good one!
4Not Fade Away
Nice jazzed out version with M. Hart rejoining.
Tectonic jamming shifting out of WR back into Playin' of intricate interplay and staggering beauty.
From steal your face. This is pure bliss, Jerry's solo does something magic, the drums are pounding, Bob Phil and Keith all on fire!
4Eyes Of The World
To think for a moment, this upon its completion, this Eyes, was to be the last ever. Think of the emotion, energy, power. One can only imagine.
Seastones. 30 min of inner ear canal clearing
Mind bending version from '74. Last show before their hiatus!

What language is Bob singing in for the first verse?!
Setting up The Other One.
