find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead March 21, 1970
Capitol Theater Port Chester, NY | Listen on archive
7Walking the Dog
A fantasic version from a fantastic run of shows!
19Dancin' in the Streets
peak version of the "true" dancin' - there's a very good AUD
18Viola Lee Blues
Light it up boys. Goes into->The Seven->Cumberland to close out the show. Not too shabby.
Pig takes the audience on a trip to the delta
7Not Fade Away
10 minute barn burner with pit-stops at St. Stephen and China Cat
A musical lucid dream.
Exceptional jamming with a great solo from Weir. Jerry and Bob feed off each other the whole time. Unfortunately, tape cut ends it abruptly.
3Wake Up Little Susie
Late Show, great take on the rare gem
Plugged in and slashingly ("thwok! thwok! thwok! thwok")! energetic opener for a rowdy crowd.
8Friend of the Devil
Really boys? Take the red pill and go back in time to this rowdy show. 2nd ever and Jer nails it after telling the crowd to "shut the fuck up".
7Deep Elem Blues
Imagine how blown away the freaks were, expecting 'Alligator' and getting this stunning intro into the country Dead.
Totally overlooked. One of the prettiest mid-sections I know of, even if there isn't much of a jam section to it.
4Death Don't Have No Mercy
after jerry tells the crowd to be quite you unruly freaks the bust this out 3rd song 1st set
nice good lovin' this is a really really good AUD version
really interesting show check it out the crowd is bananas
Out of a fantastic Seven Jams...firing on all cylinders! Especially Jerry and Phil.
Knock out acoustic version from a great show.
Cool version from rowdy show.
To the point - and totally out of the blue. This is Dead magic.
1Big Boss Man
This one gets ROARING before the final verse. Great harp solos from Pig too.
