find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Jan. 10, 1979
Nassau Coliseum Uniondale, NY | Listen on archive
Laser-focused, perfect rendition, start to finish. Super-funky with awesome Jerry fuzz-guitar, rock-blues jamming post-vocals
7I Need A Miracle
Flawless deliver by Weir followed by extended, bluesy, gritty Garcia jam
Shakedown, Bertha, Darkstar, St.Stephen all in the same set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last ever use of the "Sweet Suzie" line...I think. Subdued, but there. Nice version taboot.
11The Music Never Stopped
This is a mindblower. Jerry goes into hyper-speed and sends the crowd to a different dimension.
Last one until 1983. This version cooks. This second set is ridiculous good.
Not too fast and not too slow with some nice double time at the end.
Hard to believe this is an AUD. 8:00-8:40 is a good example - crystal clear and tight.
Galloping, tight version. Good interplay from everyone involved. One of thew few tunes Keith really came alive during his last two years with the band
Comes charging so perfectly out of "Bertha." Fun version from a GREAT show.
