find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead April 1, 1995
Pyramid Arena Memphis, TN | Listen on archive
The last great version, in the heart of Memphis. Crowd goes nuts for the Memphis line. Love it!
8Standing On The Moon
Super crazy version from maybe the best run of 1995.
One of my favorites
15Take Me To The River
Epic bust out in Memphis, the home of Al Green. Sorry, Talking Heads did not write the song. Firm believer this was the best run in 1995.
12Lazy River Road
Never loved this song, but they nailed it at this last great run of shows in Memphis.
Cool Wheel with Jerry slide intro.
6Hell in a Bucket
Proving they could still bring some fire even in 1995 this is a growling hot smoking opener. Bobby is possessed and Jerry lays down some nice runs.
8When I Paint My Masterpiece
Really on performance, this is a real animated performance, Vince is shinning, Jerry even throws in some sweet backing vocals.
4Saint of Circumstance
Killer Jerry solo. Great version all around. Solid Vince. Nice rap.
3Drums -> Space
Definitely worth a listen
3One More Saturday Night
Great run, great city, fun, fun, fun.
4All Along the Watchtower
Very strong version from the last truly great set of shows the band ever did. Jerry's on here.
3Eyes Of The World
"Eyes" was a song that really suffered towards the end, but this one is strong with a good groove.
2Way To Go Home
Vince's say at this killer show for 95
Very cool soundcheck version released on the 2018 30 Days of Dead. It would've been cool if they busted out at this great Memphis show.
