find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 30, 1985
Merriweather Post Pavilion Columbia, MD | Listen on archive
Hot from start to finish
17Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
this was an incredible run of shows...second set half step
Space jams from summer '85 are legit
11The Other One
Rapid fire version out of a heady space. Jam is high octane
A great '85 version.
31Samson and Delilah
12Big Railroad Blues
Jerry kicks this into high gear, a smokin' version
Sublime. Full heady steam engine coming down the track, check out this deep sounding monster, mellow and contained and nailed
2Let It Grow
Garcia makes the crowd lose it, an all around great show.
4Looks Like Rain
Bobby's ad libbing plus a slightly happy ending really suits the show's energy
3U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Nothing like an '85 U.S. Blues!
High energy and uptempo coming out of Mama Tried. The whole band sounds great, and Brent and Bobby provide a great rhythm section.
1Gimme Some Lovin'
double dose of I-95 summer adolescent escapade brent and phil frat house. Shit hot
I've always loved this song, particularly when it's uptempo and full like this version. The fire continues onto Mexicali Blues.
