find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 9, 1979
Memorial Auditorium Buffalo, NY | Listen on archive
I love these early versions with Brent.
Ripping Estimated from the fabled Winter 79' tour!
Amazing “Gloria Jam” follows this well played He’s Gone, Fall ’79 rules again, Check it out on Road Trips Vol 1, No 1.
19Dancin' in the Streets
Awesome transition into Franklin's. Cape Cod version is better known, but this is just as hot.
Loose, mellow, and serene
This He's Gone like many from 79 was a great Jam vehicle. This Gloria Jam is better than most Glorias!
Smokin's Alabama to start this great show off! Jer and Brent kill the end!
An amazing version out of Space. Has killer Jerry solo at end that all the great ones do!
3Easy To Love You
Strong vocals and harmonoes.
5They Love Each Other
Absolute DEFINITIVE solo. Probably one of my favorite jerry solos of all time. It comes out fully formed, absolutely inspired and never a wasted note.
Excellent conclusion to a Wharf Rat > I Need a Miracle > Bertha > Good Lovin'. From Road Trips Vol. 1, No. 1. Finishes with an energetic flourish.
4I Need A Miracle
Road Trips Fall '79 version
Quick, crisp, pretty great
2Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Might not be the best but it should be on the list.
