find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Sept. 16, 1978
Sphinx Theatre Giza, | Listen on archive
Weirs lays down the subtle sad slide guitar for the bros in far away Egypt. Great Row Jimmy vibe...
Final Sunrise in Egypt with an eclipse.
Iko in Egypt.
A sweet version in Egypt.
In the pocket start to finish.
26Fire On The Mountain
The center of a Ollin Arrageed > Fire > Iko triptych. Included as a bonus track on the "Shakedown" CD. Just exactly perfect.
Awesome version here. These ae very under-rated showxs from egypt. Some very inspired playing.
2Looks Like Rain
The versions of most songs in Egypt are a little different and chill in a good way. Cool Jerry guitar work at end.
22I Need A Miracle
Another great Miracle from the fall of 1978. I wish they played it like this in the 90's.
Hot version. "It doesn't matter how many camels u have...got to have lovin" Epic LMFAO. Very under-rated show.
I love this one going into Fire. Really good show this night in Egypt!
2Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
C'mon, no love for Egypt? Stony '78 groove with the Olin lead in. Always takes me there
Egypt show - best 70s version. Closing 2 minutes of "Don't you let that Deal go down" coda is a raucous affair.
7New Minglewood Blues
Keith's piano work is amazing in this one. Whole band is on fire. Egypt 1978
5Its All Over Now
Egypt 1978, awesome
Even wth B.K. having a broken hand I have always enjoyed the drums on this evening. A truly mesmerizing performance
3Around and Around
From the magical eclipse night in Gizah a truly magical journey.
Better than the more heard version the night before...swag, thunder...you got it
I know they should have played Dark Star in Egypt. But this is a fantastic EP. Dynamic, dramatic, Jerry on fire.
