Grateful Dead July 27, 1974

Civic Center Roanoke, VA | Listen on archive

Users have designated the following versions as heady!
U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
A jammed out U.S. Blues->Promised Land.
China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Smooth firey build up to an epic Feelin' Groovy
It 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.
Me 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.
Playin' 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.
Brokedown Palace
Jerry's singing and electrified Keith make this one heady.
Promised Land
U.S. Blues-> Promised land is absolutely delicious on this evening an absolute world class version, Great contributions from everyone on this tune.
Ramble 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.
Tennessee Jed
This one deserves a listen or two!
Row Jimmy
a very reggaeish slow jammin' version
Not Fade Away
Somewhat 77esque in its dwelling-in-the-moment explorations
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Smokey brew from the eye of ‘74
