find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Aug. 24, 1972
Berkeley Community Theatre Berkeley, CA | Listen on archive
Grate version from a time when the boys were in peak form
6Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Sometimes I can't come up with the words...this is one of those times
1Greatest Story Ever Told
If this were any week in Dead history other than before Veneta, it would already have 20 votes. Give it a listen. The whole show rocks.
Yet another great '72 version.
Great Dark Star->Morning Dew!
3Uncle John's Band
Beautiful version, Phil is exquisite
6Playin' In The Band
Top notch psychedelica
Massive driving groove leading straight into one of the top DS of all time. My ears hear a flirt with NFBM jam that never quite hatches.
A tasty little Sugar Mag
5China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Sweet version from an overlooked show.
3Brown Eyed Women
Absolutely close to perfect version. A beautiful little jam and sung with such passion has that extra little magic.
Very un and easily among the best couple Mexicali Blues of All time. Great work by Bobby n Jerry on this one.
Wow they really nailed this song in august of 1972. Very amazing not quite Veneta but not far off.
Right after this powerful version, there's a lovely segment where Donna introduces herself and her husband to Deadheads.
1Sing Me Back Home
Awesome version - Donna's harmonies sound like a gospel choir. Love It !
1Ramble On Rose
Vocal forward - Well played, "Good Bye Mama and Papa!"
Sweet rocker from this magical week of Dead perfection. Sleek and clean, this is a beaut of a version.
Pretty much note for note perfect, like this whole show.
1Me and My Uncle
Keith's versatility from swooshing psychedelic soarer to a honky-tonk barrelhouse master is on full display.
1One More Saturday Night
Bobby BRINGIN it on the shouts! Ripper
