Grateful Dead - Samson and Delilah
Below you'll find a user-submitted list of the best Grateful Dead Samson and Delilah.
Awesome. Miss the first verse due to a power out or summin, but get it super nice after an awesome build up
odd spacy intro. a tad slower and much less predecitable than latter era versions. smooth as 18 y/o scotch.
Whoa! Drum intro is an avalanche and the chorus is so huge
Super fast hot somkin' goodness... makes me get up and dance every time. :)
Mickey and Billy are the catalyst and engine throughout. Joyful and tight drumming propel this version.
Goofy stage banter by Bob, then the rippingest, roaringest, best-drummed version I know.
Pacing and perfected-dance-shuffling the rhythm section w/Bobby fills and Jer's all-over-the-fretboard attack make this a definitive A+ version.
Nice and hot. Bob's vocals are on.
Ripping start to the second set. Bobby kills it. Sweet Sampson>Bertha>Good Lovin' to get things going!
As is the case with nearly all 1977 versions, this Samson and Delilah is huge and each member provides an energetic presence.
