find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead April 22, 1978
Nashville Municipal Auditorium Nashville, TN | Listen on archive
Not a huge fan of this tune usually but this one is extremely catchy. Maybe it had to do with the fact that they were in Nashville...
19Pretty Peggy O
Yet another sweetly delivered '78 Peggy-O.
Garcia crushes it! There is a very nice Joani Walker recording of this on LMA...
Nashville, where else. Vocally outlandish, solo dead on.
19It Must Have Been The Roses
a most evocative vocalization of the lyrics
22Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Most notable is the Supplication with nice jammed out pre-1st verse jam. The final jam is no sloucher either.
24New Minglewood Blues
nice and jamming, sweet Minglewood
Killer Bertha>GL to open. Jerry's tone is bright and this one is super tight!
Smoked out of Bertha...the combo was nailed this evening.
17Not Fade Away
Starts off an amazing post drums. Bob on slide goes back and forth with Jer...tremendous jammed out version!
Just an all round hot version. Some added fanning for good measure.
Similar to the 77 versions with a way meatier mid-jam. I will take this over the Mosque any day!
9Eyes Of The World
One of those super fast Eyes! Hot!
12Looks Like Rain
Great one from the newest Dave's picks.
5One More Saturday Night
Heady encore to the newest Dave's picks.
The Beast in all its glory!
