Grateful Dead July 16, 1966
Fillmore Auditorium San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
16It's All Over Now Baby Blue
My all time favorite, perfect version!
8Cream Puff War
so many roads box set version. definitive. tight, smokin' solo to boot.
10Viola Lee Blues
Classic. Old school dead. Clear vocals, very 60's sounding. classic 60's organ.
4Cold Rain and Snow
Scorching fast paced rocker, Amphetamine fueled beauty. Great historical dead. Has that Groovy 60's swing.
2Sitting on Top of the World
Short and peppy early rocking version. Has that early garage band Nuggets feel to it.
4Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Long for the period 10+ minutes of rocking pigpen blues. The highlight of this early treasure of a show.
9You Don't Have To Ask
Love the Nuggets/garage band early era psychedelic sound from the boys
5New Minglewood Blues
early blues amphetamine beauty
5I Know You Rider
Nice early version, very primitive, alternate lyrics.
5Big Boss Man
Great early Pig, pristine SBD sound, he's wailing on the harmonica.
2Nobody's Fault But Mine
Nobody's Fault with a fast tempo, quite different than the later versions.
4Next Time You See Me
Early Pig blues, love the odd keyboard tones on this early show.
2Don't Ease Me In
First time played? Surprised it hasn't been mentioned.
3Dancin' in the Streets
Jammed out more than most songs from this show.
3He Was A Friend of Mine
What a depressing song.
4Beat it on Down The Line
I just wish the keyboards didn't drown everyone else out.
