find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Feb. 9, 1973
Roscoe Maples Pavilion - Stanford University Palo Alto, CA | Listen on archive
Super strong 70s version
81Eyes Of The World
first one ever, and they knock it outta the park, er, Pavilion
15China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Great Wavy Gracy banter on track preceding..."The Rainbow Makers"...the boys live up to it
49They Love Each Other
First one best ever? Love the mellow versions, but this begs the question.
Jerry git and vocals on fire, funky ass backbeat from bill and phil. A rocker.
15Here Comes Sunshine
First time played and it's as good as they come. Seven first time songs this gig in Stanford, wow!!
Jerry is goin' wild. Sick noodling in the begining for one of my favorite "passive" songs
5U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
First Wave That Flag and is full of energy.
Truckin' into incredible Eyes... Give it a spin.
4Box of Rain
Clear, touching, and emotional.
Listen to this past midnight on a calm, quiet day. Mindblowing.
5Ramble On Rose
Jerry sings his heart out and hits all the right notes! Awesome version!
Not flawless, but smokin' hot nonetheless
7Playin' In The Band
Nice version. Sets the tone for the year along with the rest of this show.
Damn shame about the cuts, but this one is smoking. Great start to '73
4Looks Like Rain
I call this the raindrop version due to the effect. Nice early LLR.
Solid version. Classic show.
3Black Throated Wind
Surprised to not see this. Great version from the first show of 73
5Uncle John's Band
end of a great show a solid UJB and just the boys harmonizing like they used to.
Solid version from an epic show.
Fast and bouncy...well-played
Swingin' energetic version. Really kicks at the end.
