Grateful Dead - Deep Elem Blues
Below you'll find a user-submitted list of the best Grateful Dead Deep Elem Blues.
Jerry's voice just exactly bluesy perfect...groovy & slow acoustic cadence & the boys harmonizing sweetly on the chrouses. Outstanding early version
For a stellar electric version check out this one from Philly. Also included as filler material for Road Trips Vol. 4 No. 4
Rare electric version of this gem!
Very nicely done, very sweet show full of joyful surprises
Imagine how blown away the freaks were, expecting 'Alligator' and getting this stunning intro into the country Dead.
Merramec Community College
So good. Not GD, but worth a listen. Jerry acoustic with john kahn on bass playing Oregon State Penitentiary.
Tight both vocally and instrumentally; kind of a funky version
Unique as an electric funky blues. The only recording of it between 70 and 78 in a studio rehearsal. Pity this didn't go into rotation this way.
Classic 1970 acoustic version. Excellent Road trips here!
Sweet opener. This is about where in the year the immortal Country Dead takes off: 6 hour shows, three sets, NRPS, what a time. This one's a beauty.
