find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 20, 1977
Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
Wait for the ending...
They get pretty out there with this one
31Brown Eyed Women
this should be the de facto Brown Eyes Women...the first solo is stellar...
20The Other One
Many facets to this one. Gets into some nice mellow jamming just before a nice Stella
10Samson and Delilah
A little bit of a slow start, but when it gets going, watch out!
Love Keith on this one...quite a night in the Winterland, I am sure
9Pretty Peggy O
If you like 3-18, you'll like this one, too; some vocal flubs, but the groove is perfect.
34Beat it on Down The Line
There's something special about this version and this show
Smokin' version, smokin' show
Mellow short version with Donna backing vocal adding nice depth here.
3Around and Around
Nice rocking around and around, such a dialed in year.
Really hot El Paso, bobby is in real fine form the whole show as is Jer.
11Ramble On Rose
Majestic, Jerry and keith are truly spot on for this pairing, Crisp beautiful version on Archive.
4U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Great cherry on top of one bad ass show. Crisp beautiful recording on archive, show is amazing.
Great version, IMO best bit of first set
4New Minglewood Blues
Show opener really great vocals and Jerry already on fire
Filter attack on the bridge, contrasts well with the burst-into-flames version from the night before
