find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Cold Rain and Snow
Feb. 13, 1970
Great recording from a great night, the boys got in the right mood with this version right here.
Wave to the Wind
May 23, 1993
Post '91 greatness.
Sept. 2, 1983
Boise Pavilion - Boise State University
My favorite, and it's not even on the list. My sense is that this one will shoot up the list.
Two Souls in Communion
March 23, 1972
Academy of Music
Pigpen sells this one to me.
Nov. 5, 1970
Audio quality is the only thing that holds this one down. Get some headphones and imagine where this should be on the list.

Not Fade Away
Nov. 7, 1971
Fans of '71 will wonder why this one is so far down. 11-15-71 still takes the cake, but this one beats Halloween in my opinion.
April 26, 1972
They are all really good towards the top, but the tempo, and Jerry's solo hits my ear just right on this one.
Aug. 5, 1971
The only thing better than a Bertha opener, is a 9 min Bertha opener.
Friend of the Devil
Aug. 10, 1982
Iowa Fieldhouse - University of Iowa
With meaning by all who dared.
Not Fade Away
Oct. 15, 1977
Moody Coliseum - Southern Methodist University
Great interplay by all, with Keith holding it all together.
