find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Jan. 31, 1970
The Warehouse New Orleans, LA | Listen on archive
A nice accoustic song frpm The Warehouse
the day after the new orleans drug bust and phils amp blows so bobby and jerry play acoustics really really cool
For anyone with a soft spot for psychedelic bubblegum, the jam the shit out of this one. Ruff cut in the middle though.
Introduced as a "paranoid fantasy song", but oh so sweet for all that. Perfect rendition.
3Hard to Handle
More like the great '71s than the others from 1970. A hard enough rocker that it apparently nuked Phil's amp, leading to a wonderful acoustic set.
4Long Black Limousine
Showcases their versatility: Switched mid-way through an electric set into this moody beauty after Phil's amp blew out. Gorgeous.
Upvote for all Little Sadies, of course, but this one is special. Subtle, understated, and delicate: Jerry is barely whispering the lyrics. Beautiful.
6I've Been All Around This World
As deep and simple a beautiful blues as they ever did. Pig's got the spirit of the Delta here alright. What a treat.
4Big Boss Man
Pig's Blues in the Big Easy.
5Cold Rain and Snow
Show opener after the bust.
Everybody's in the pocket after having a little meet with Buford T Justice.
2The Race Is On
Nice acoustic version from a unique show
On acoustics and the singing is great fun. Bobby flubs a lyric but it's just such a unique night who cares. Listen to this show!
