find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead April 5, 1971
Manhattan Center New York, NY | Listen on archive
9Not Fade Away
A massive verson so it's easy to see why this was used on Skull & Roses.
11Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Grew up on this Skull and Roses version. Got to love the Quintessential Quartet!
12Me and Bobby McGee
Jerry yodels. Need I say more?
5The Other One
Powerful version with insane Phil muscular bass kicking into a sweet Wharf Rat. A gem of a show.
Beautiful Skull and Roses-era top notch Wharf Rat genius on your ears here for those'll have it. Enjoy, bros.
3Cold Rain and Snow
Burning solid show opener. I keep coming back to this one.
5Big Railroad Blues
Simply the best one I know. Energetic uptempo rockin' and rollin' with a hard driving bass player named PHIL!
2Playin' In The Band
'71 Playin's are a special kind of love: nothing like what it became, a clang machine 10/4 poppin' country yodel. This one knocks my socks off.
1Turn On Your Love Light
An aural honeypot capping a dynamite show.
Concise performance with great Garcia solo
4Ain't It Crazy (The Rub)
Solid 1971 electric version.
This one has a unique feel to it
Turn sunburst orange, blue, and white all over again
3China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
More '71 vitamins...
