find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Dec. 19, 1969
Fillmore Auditorium San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
One of only three known versions
2Long Black Limousine
One of the first, and its strong and tight and powerful. Is there a bad show from Dec. '69?
2Uncle John's Band
Gorgeous explosion out of one of the best Crypticals ever played and really well sung.
1I've Been All Around This World
First version in the first acoustic set.
2Turn On Your Love Light
Nice 25 minute excursion through a blues rock psychedelic stew, Fantastic early dead killer pigpen and Jerry leads throughout.
Another wonderful psychedelic nugget with Jerry fully dominating the exit jam
2The Other One
This is just dripping in psychedelic goodness, Bobby is on fire as is Phil and Jerry, great team effort.
4Hard to Handle
Macho and Jammy right here.
Absolutely ROCKIN' Mason's kicks off the eeeelectric portion of this show. This might be the first one ever played...they rip it up!
Why isn't this rager on here yet?! Maybe not as long as some, but full of that early Dead energy that we love so much!
2Monkey and the Engineer
First time played.
