find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Oct. 21, 1978
Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
SHOCKED this one wasn't mentioned yet. Even with the crushing cut out in the SBDs, this version still stands at the top
42The Other One
This is a superb version, but even hotter with a SICK 'Got My Mojo Workin' before and a transcendent 'Stella Blue' to follow
Played oh so perfectly. Great energy
Garcia drives this one home
12I Need A Miracle
This one is ridiculous. Road trips V1:4.
Should already be here. Super inspired playing all night.
24Got My Mojo Working
This wasnt played often but this is the definitive version that goes into one of the most intense O1's ever.
First performance in the USA leads into Promised from the Egypt with Love Shows at Winterland upon their return to the states.
7Ramble On Rose
Terriffic from the Egypt with love shows
11U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
A great US Blues from a truly epic late 1978 run.
Love this version. Great vocals and an awesome jam sequence with Lee Oskar on harmonica
High energy with an awesome Sunshine Daydream part. Great end to an awesome jam!
2Looks Like Rain
That thing where Bob and Donna Jean sound like they're deeply in love.
2It Must Have Been The Roses
This whole show fucks. Even the IMHBTR. Band was a gang of poised killers this evening.
Kicks off this epic set 2. Great version, Jerry's torching it.
Killer Bob version.
