Grateful Dead Feb. 23, 1974
Winterland Arena San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
80Here Comes Sunshine
Rare uptempo jams; Jerry really on fire throughout. Good harmonizing with nice high clear Phil riffs.
20Eyes Of The World
Cooks. Great show all around...
12Weather Report Suite
Weather Report Suite->Stella Blue
19The Other One
Gets real out fuurther and faster then into a Help-Slip preview in the jam. Great interplay between Phil and Jerry.
2It Must Have Been The Roses
The second live version has a cool slightly different feel.
10Greatest Story Ever Told
Electrifying and high-power jams, with some of the weirdest sounds Donna ever made. Great fun and a wild ride.
Hits that sweet spot between a shuffle and a ballad. Slight tinniness to Jer's Mike on my copy gives a nice swirling trippiness to it.
Cookin' with some insane keith solos
Absolute fire blues here. This is crushed, awesome version from an awesome show
Apparently no one is aware that a fellow named Keith played in this band or this version would have 50 votes already. Needs to be heard!
2Johnny B. Goode
Different than most.
Nice driving beat.
3Let It Grow
This is Jazz. Billy is on.
Nice slow tempo, and Keith is killin it too
‘74 row jimmys are so sweet
3Me and Bobby McGee
From another overlooked show. So many great ones during this time
4Ramble On Rose
Can't believe it's not listed.
6Ship of Fools
Second ever performance, and they knock it out of the park.
7Around and Around
Amazing recording and Bobby's energy and the band is completely engaged and locked in. Opener for the show. Second show of '74. Worthy listen!! :)
1Me and My Uncle
Just a solid, tight little version! From Dave's Picks 42
