find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 10, 1976
Boston Music Hall Boston, MA | Listen on archive
38Mission in the Rain
One of the best Dead songs, short lived but a good life it was
All the all-time Sugarees from early 77 start here folks, and they're already sublime. Keith shines.
11They Love Each Other
Reeeeeaaaal smoooooooooth. . . .
25Playin' In The Band
Spacey and crazy Playin in the Band gets real wierd fast before dissolving into absolute space
7Dancin' in the Streets
Another fabulous and funky 1976 Dancin' Super disco funk on this one, Hot
I am well aware that the cliche, "I can't believe this version hasn't been mentioned yet!!" is well played out...But
13Friend of the Devil
Just about perfect
11Let It Grow
9The Music Never Stopped
Airtight version with perfect orchestration. Especially sweet vocals with Donna Jean at her best. Never quite lifts off in the jam though.
9Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
I suppose everyone knows the one the night before, but this one is tighter & more overwhelming in that all-encompassing 7/4 mindmelt way.
19Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
So many brilliant ones, but you're missing a real treat if you count this one out. Particularly strong Franklin's but the Slipknot! is brilliant too.
Super up tempo and thoroughly rocking Big River, can't even believe it hasn't been posted yet. CHECK THIS SHOW!!!
7Brown Eyed Women
8Looks Like Rain
Surprised this version isn’t listed
Great show opener
2U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Well-played encore, sounds incredible too
6Samson and Delilah
Phil’s and Jerry’s sixteenth-note runs light up this version with a country-blues twang faintly reminiscent of Cumberland.
3Might As Well
How is this not listed?! I realize all the June 76 versions were great but this is mind-blowing!
