Grateful Dead July 12, 1969

NY State Pavilion, Flushing Meadow Park Queens, NY | Listen on archive

Users have designated the following versions as heady!
Mountains of the Moon
Buried in bad AUD murk and hiss, this was the last one ever performed. It's longer, slower and beautiful. A gem for completist collectors only.
Dark Star
Some AUD probs but a glowing, surging perfect slice of '69 Dead. Begins acoustically. A rare treat from under the radar.
The Eleven
Expanding over 14 minutes, this one covers different themes and vibes with great streches for soloing. Low-fi AUD.
Turn On Your Love Light
Goes way off the rails with Bobby, Pig, audience members and Phil all acting quite mad. Reminds me of some of the Acid Test recordings. A rarity.
The Other One
Groooovy summer of '69 version
