find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Jan. 3, 1970
Fillmore East New York City, NY | Listen on archive
alligator>drums>alligator = 23 minutes!
Blasting, enormous, fully psychadelic early Dead show opener complete with cool TC organ, massive gongs and great vocals.
Sweet version, great harmonies lots of fun. The whole show's a must have for fans of the early stuff.
14The Other One
Bursts out with mega mic'd horsepower. Lifts you out of your chair and pins you to the wall. Derserves many fans.
Not mellow. Not spaced-out sweetness, but a burning hot re-entry after a rocketship TOO.
Back from when this wasn't just a toss-off after Drums/Space. High voltage Pig.
8Cold Rain and Snow
Another great version from early in the year
Fantastic trippy heady dripping in acid psychedelic wonder
Another fantastic early version in the late show, terrific stuff
Everybody needs to hear this. The most best
2Big Boss Man
Great version from kick-butt show.
Not enough respect for this song.
1China Cat Sunflower
Classic Dead - clean, clear, and in complete unison. Fantastic version of this song - Jerry sounds amazing, and you can feel the energy throughout!
