find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Sept. 18, 1974
Parc des Expositions Dijon, | Listen on archive
74Uncle John's Band
Amazing jammed out show opener
42Playin' In The Band
The nastiest '74 psychedelic jazzy funkyness. Dirty Harry's worst nightmare.
26To Lay Me Down
So very sweet and tender.
29Friend of the Devil
1st time played since 1972...
23Black Throated Wind
Perfect combo of Bobby's voice and Jerry's guitar
9The Race Is On
This version reins supreme. Keith lays down a killer solo.
A great standalone version. Really nice jamming
Long, wonderful soloing
32Eyes Of The World
Jerry has some very melodic and swinging solos during the verses
Sweet fusion-style Caution jam with major hints of MLB. Builds to a fiery Garcia climax!!
8Johnny B. Goode
Nice groove by the best swing band I know!
Sweet gossamer comedown nicely after the angular intensity of Eyes. Jerry's voice is smooth and lovely.
Short jam, Stars & Stripes, then loose & funky Lucy
Featured on the grateful dead hour long ago, this version was instantly my Fav. PHIL!
One of my favorite versions.
18Pretty Peggy O
VERY laid back version with subdued guitar work letting Keith and Phil shine through.Not sure I've heard another like this.
3Me and My Uncle
Super polished, tightly crispy.....
This is a soundcheck! So heartfelt
Short but sweet jam from Jerry.
Listen to your favorite guitarist soundcheck scales - I did - 3 times so far.
4Beat it on Down The Line
Jerry's drop into the solo is one of the grooviest goddamn things I've ever heard.
3U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Merci et bonne nuit a tous
Real nice version from a top notch 74 show. Very energetic
