find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 24, 1972
Strand Lyceum London, | Listen on archive
33Playin' In The Band
One of the best from the Europe '72 tour.
The only Europe '72 one and a classic to boot.
19Hurts Me Too
Smoking version from a hot show.
Yet another great Europe '72 version.
44Cold Rain and Snow
From Steppin Out 72, they hold down a bold & strong groove throughout w. the heartfelt vocals of the era
sweet. short and all PIG!
No love for this version? Then let me say that this is a winner!
22The Other One
Very long and spacy version that gets very intense. One of the best of Europe '72.
15Two Souls in Communion
To me, this one is just exactly perfect. Pigpen's swan song. Definitely my favorite arrow in his quiver.
12Turn On Your Love Light
Last ever with Pig.
Very sweetly played and sung. Could easily have been the version picked for "Europe '72."
*Yet another* stellar Truckin' from Europe '72. It would be unconscionable not to acknowledge its greatness here.
8You Win Again
final time played in Europe. Played 5 more times after this in the states.
set one closer
another standout from europe 72
Man, they're having a blast. Totally firing on all cylinders, and clipping along at 90mph. Great stuff.
6Sing Me Back Home
It’s always soulful in ‘72
2Sing Me Back Home
It’s always soulful in ‘72. This one is no exception
5Black Throated Wind
Super tight, driving version!
4China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Reminded me of "Linus and Lucy" in some places - Pristine!
3One More Saturday Night
Not the very best, but all of the Europe '72 versions deserve to be on here...
2Beat it on Down The Line
I've yet to hear a '72 version that doesn't kick at least some degree of ass, and this is no exception...
Very nice early version...surprised it's not already here.
2Me and My Uncle
Excellent, as you'd expect on this tour...
Another nice bridge between Truckin' and TOO from E72
