find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Sept. 11, 1982
West Palm Beach Auditorium West Palm Beach, FL | Listen on archive
43Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
The very definition of "underrated." Almost lost to time& yet it kills. No flubbed verses, great steady reggae jams;perfect transition. Please try it.
19Let It Grow
A stupedous version; they ride what I call the "80's LIG theme" (that 3 note figure Jerry repeats a lot) to very climatic effect!
Bit slower than the ones I usually groove on, but Jerry's bounce started off a very fine day for me.
5C. C. Rider
This is when I thought the show locked in.
9Dupree's Diamond Blues
The quirk of this is when I felt the show take on its own character.
6New Minglewood Blues
My favorite shows always tend to start with this. Weird.
Infused with the same reggae/calypso quirkiness from the stellar "S>F" and before.
12Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Key element of the weirdness of this show for me.
2Drums -> Space
Kicks back into the cowboy vibe from earlier in the show, leads into a stellar "Stella."
Highlight from the end of the show.
3Me and My Uncle
Solid vocals from Bob, nice guitar work from Jerry, but...
Have loved this version for years. Each post verse solo is tasty and the outro rocks. Phis also is heavy on the low B at the end.
2Looks Like Rain
Cool version/cool Show
10It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Always such a gem, wonderful encore on this evening.
This is a BIG OL RIVER! This whole show is so special, and totally 'under the radar'...Check it out, and hold on tight!!!
7They Love Each Other
Surprised this isn't up; this whole show is quite hot and has a very unique, calypso sort of vibe. This TLEO is a great example of that. Check it out.
