find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Sept. 16, 1972
Boston Music Hall Boston, MA | Listen on archive
Amazed this isn't here yet Gorgeous, melodic, jazz-infused, mellow, trippy, spacey into hard ripping Jerry riffs; melts into Brokedown Palace. Sublime
6Playin' In The Band
An enjoyable listen, but most notable, I'd say, for an excellent little peak that rises up like a volcano towards the end of the jam.
Jerry really belts this one out. All of the attention to detail that you'd expect in a version from this era plus a good bridge solo.
This melts like a dream from a weirdly underrated Dark Star & is sung beautifully by Jerry & played sweetly by all. Give a listen!
1Black Throated Wind
No bad ones at all from this era, but listen in and you can hear Jerry drive Bobby higher and higher. Great powerful emotive energy.
Listen through the murky AUD and you'll find a powerhouse version that clearly blew the doors off. Crowd energy contributes to a great version.
1Big Railroad Blues
Really needs a cleanup, or some miracle tapes to clear the sound on this little gem. They were on. Where's the rest of the SB?
1Greatest Story Ever Told
Streaks across the sky like a comet. Choose the SBD version, you won't regret it. Bobby and Donny are totally on together.
