find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead April 9, 1983
Hampton Coliseum Hampton, VA | Listen on archive
7West L.A. Fadeaway
Definite bias here...it's my birthday! Pretty rippin' all things considered. Jerry really seems into it, as does Brent
17Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
This whole show is the Dead at their most energetic and the HSF has some exceptionally fine playing by Jerry. Maybe the best version of the decade!
Hampton magic once again, great Satisfaction from an above average show.
Funkiest version I've heard
4China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
One of the best of the year
Right from the starting gate, the boys hit the ground running! If you love Franklin's do yourself a favor and give it a spin!
Extended and jammy early version had more improvasation than you find in the jamming on later versions.
Powerful take this night....
3Brown Eyed Women
With some energy and Jer's got a steady hand here - Brent high and all over this mix...Devils are kickin hard this night too.
