Grateful Dead - Wharf Rat
Below you'll find a user-submitted list of the best Grateful Dead Wharf Rat.
First version ever nicely sandwiched between the epic DS, Jerry really belts it out.
Most pristine version I've ever heard. So smooth, so clear. Keith leads the way, Jerry brings it home. . Essential for all Wharf Rat fans
One of the best extended intros coming out of space. The whole band is very into it. You even get Phil shushing the crowd during the quiet parts.
grate vocals --- perfect pathos
Perhaps the most distinctive and spacey version they played. Mellow and poignant. My favorite.
Garcia crushes it! There is a very nice Joani Walker recording of this on LMA...
Beautiful version. Must listen.
epic Wharf Rat, also seen on Skull and Roses
This is an amazing version for Phil Lovers. Grab the audience tape, turn it up, and be destroyed by massive Phil Bombs.
Great jammed out version. Heady stuff
Shocked this one wasn't already here. Top 3 in my book.
UJB>Jam>Wharf Rat>Dark Star. The Wharf Rat comes out of a soft, full, thoughtful space - a detour on the journey to the Star.
Part of a unbelievable 2nd set sandwich. Phils bass just explodes!
Slightly faster with a steady ostinato bass that works beautifully. No dirge, but a thoughtful tale. I hear waves against a wharf at the end.
Spacey and Uplifting outtro
