find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead July 25, 1974
International Amphitheater Chicago, IL | Listen on archive
This one goes errrywhere. Billy and Keith drive the middle part of the jam. Even significant Slipknot! jamming
5Weather Report Suite
Jerry Is amazing on this. It goes into Around and Around (unfortunately) and per usual Donna is a little overbearing
Great fast leads from Jerry
5Black Throated Wind
Damned strong version building up nicely to the towering triumph, "you've done better by me than I've done by you". Strong stuff.
4Brown Eyed Women
Energetic and tight with great harmonies and strong soloing.
Epic slow-burning funk. Gets better as it goes, and as Garica gets louder in the mix...one of my favorite stand alones!
Phil funks this one up tough.
Greatness in this one: Powerful ensemble vocals.
4Let It Grow
Tight and hot. Something in the vocals at this show went just perfect too, adding to the intensity.
3Around and Around
High energy end to 1st set of a show which starts slow then just gets better and better
Short but sweet, played well even if it doesn't go outside the box. Underrated show...
The cowboy song portion of an underrated show.
2Ship of Fools
Emotive, floating and airy ....Phil and Keith accents all over the place.
2Uncle John's Band
Nice and jammed out into US Blues
2U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Good '74 version thats bouncy and energetic, with good vocals
