find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 23, 1973
County Coliseum El Paso, TX | Listen on archive
They put a little extra oomph on this for the El Paso crowd
5Greatest Story Ever Told
Keith steals this one. Nice groove
8Eyes Of The World
This one cooks nicely. Great era for the song
5Weather Report Suite
VERY spicy, down on the border jams!!!
2Looks Like Rain
So very tender. Check out Jerry's beautiful solo during the bridge!
Nov. '73 and there isn't a bad show in it. This Loser has something special in its tightness and the tempo (doesn't drag). Damn they were good.
3The Race Is On
Cool version full of Bill.
4The Other One
This is most notable, I'd say, for the absolutely nuclear bomb that Phil drops during the 'Space' portion. Play it loud on a big rig!
Wonderful He's Gone->Truckin->The Other One sequence. Stellar 1973 Magic
Wickedly Hot Truckin, stellar sequence Typical 1973 excellence
3China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
2Johnny B. Goode
Keith really likes this song!
If possible, a very contemplative TJ. Everyone's in apex '73 form, esp. Godchaux who's mixed fairly high to good effect.
