find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 8, 1970
Capitol Theater Port Chester, NY | Listen on archive
Just listened to the second set of this (GD set). This show is AWESOME! A set truly unlike any other. Why oh why didn't they play these tunes more!
New Orleans->Searchin'!!! Listen to the Ken and Judy Lee version on the Archive...
I found it! This Morning Dew is IT! please,please dew yourselves a favor and listen to this. We have a winner!
A true Grateful Dead artifact. This audience recording is second-to-none for the early years, and the atmosphere it creates is divine.
6I Know You Rider
Moody, pensive, and beautifully acoustic. Like no other. Unbelievably beautiful.
The boys were in a mellow mood tonight, and this one is the sweet and tearful-cowboy ballad it was written to be.
Takes off on you for a deep and weird ride, then goes into a brilliant "The Main Ten" which just kills me its so good.
15Dancin' in the Streets
Slow, relentless jam--unique and very cool version from an unheralded show.
4Uncle John's Band
Acoustic set closer, try not to clap along with the audience at the end. The dog will look at you funny.
Opener to one of the greatest acoustic sets ever
6Around and Around
First time played, and although a little rough they rock it out and nail it.
5Wake Up Little Susie
Final time played, and its a grand finale.
3Not Fade Away
NFA < GDTRFB < NFA and its epic
The only known version the boys played and they nail it. Check the super smooth transition into the only known 'My Babe'. Only circulates in AUD.
Great year for this song, no doubt, emotive, and serene. A quick ride in time, Capitol Theater 1970.
Final time played, Pig is in fine form, acoustic set here is beautiful, entire show for that matter is transcendent stuff.
Get this AUD concert right now, that's all I'll say
5Friend of the Devil
Love the acoustic version of this song
13It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Such a lovely rendition of this, brings a tear to my eye
3Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Unique jam going into the song and we get a mountan jam tease into the NFA reprise. Overall a killer version.
fantastic early dead rare wonderful nugget
Final jam in an enormous show. Just killer. Follows the one NRPS set you need to hear. Whatta world.
Upbeat and well-played version. Not a mind-blower, but builds up to a pretty sweet peak into a nice Truckin'
