find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 12, 1980
Memorial Coliseum Portland, OR | Listen on archive
WOW! Quickly pushed to the top of my list for favorite version ever! Amazing initial jam, then they bring it to a whisper, then - massive peak (17min)
15Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Show is proving to be a real hidden gem. Mt St Helens was allegedly erupting nearby for the 3rd time during Fire. Really hot Scarlet and on-point Fire
An absolute flurry of energy. Scorching version
Run and see. The mt. St. Helen show
Just a great, grooving, bluesy Althea. Everyone right in the pocket. Find the exceptional Miller SBD & enjoy.
3Far From Me
Triumphant and energetic. Strong vocals from Brent.
3Not Fade Away
Really nice groove out of drums. Chill version but in a good way.
2Brown Eyed Women
Hot and fast-paced — fitting on the night Mt. St.Helens blew!
A mighty show and a mighty Deal!
3Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
Insanely powerful show, from sweet Althea into ripping Deal set closer!!!
Drums into scorching Scarlet-Fire as Mt. St. Helen's erupts again! Say no more...
3Pretty Peggy O
Curious this isn't on here yet. One of Jerry's best solos ever. Notes disappear into nothing, then the next one digs and bites. Remarkable feeling.
