find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 4, 1977
Cotterell Gym - Colgate University Hamilton, NY | Listen on archive
With soul, coming out of eyes into the other one
35Brown Eyed Women
nice energy, great Jerry solo
Patient build into a soaring version. Glides nicely into a Playin' Reprise
13Playin' In The Band
Kicks off a big ol' Playin' sandwich, very meaty...the Playin' is good, but the transition and the subsequent Eyes are delicious
38Eyes Of The World
Watch out for this one...the boys seem to be taking great pleasure in the intro jamming, as if they found a long-lost fave toy...Jerry's absurd.
10New Minglewood Blues
Keith's smokin' originality on his solo precedes Jer winding a solo down to low registers where he adds bubbles only to escape w/ a wild rhythm figure
9Cold Rain and Snow
Second set homecoming rips! Nice Donna harmonies as well.
8The Other One
Damn, this one is short but ridiculously hot for 1977!
14Let It Grow
This song seemed to have peaked in the fall of 77,doesn't get much sweeter than this.
Holy shit is this a smoker or what. Too bad they end it 5 minutes in, this version was fucking cooking.
5Johnny B. Goode
This gets out of control fairly quickly, when jerry takes his solo to the next level. A seriously rocking version.
Intense and quick jamming. Charged Bertha > Good Lovin' to open the legendary trio, 11-4, 11-5,11-6
Super charged Bertha!
6Dupree's Diamond Blues
Third one in awhile!
6Samson and Delilah
They drive this one home...definately better than most!
Love the killer new age lyrics sweet delivery by Donna
