find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead July 27, 1974
Civic Center Roanoke, VA | Listen on archive
12Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
A strong version.
17U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
A jammed out U.S. Blues->Promised Land.
6China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Smooth firey build up to an epic Feelin' Groovy
3It Must Have Been The Roses
Very sweet and right out of a grooving MHUT. Summer '74 is chock-full of goodness, and this Roses doesn't disappoint one little bit.
5Me and Bobby McGee
Starts simply enough, then around the four-minute mark just explodes into a beautiful carnival funride of musical unity and sweet sweet soul.
9Playin' In The Band
As brilliant an example of Billy K's genius as I know on the Archive. Great meltdown, too. Put it in the same category as 02.12.73. It's that good.
Jerry's singing and electrified Keith make this one heady.
U.S. Blues-> Promised land is absolutely delicious on this evening an absolute world class version, Great contributions from everyone on this tune.
3Ramble On Rose
This has a grat bounce to it and Keith is playing an electric piano so it sounds differnt than his usual grand. Jerry Rips a wonderful solo, HOT vers.
This one deserves a listen or two!
a very reggaeish slow jammin' version
1Not Fade Away
Somewhat 77esque in its dwelling-in-the-moment explorations
1Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Smokey brew from the eye of ‘74
