find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Sept. 28, 1972
Stanley Theatre Jersey City, NJ | Listen on archive
Sweet, sweet version
51The Other One
Unreal, easily top 5, one of the most tripped out jamin' versions known. Exquisite!
71Greatest Story Ever Told
Greatest STEPHEN ever Told. Jerry rips into a "St.Stephen" jam in the bridge jam before the reprise. 2d only to 8/27
10Black Throated Wind
A standout version from a great show.
A standout Truckin' from a great show.
20Playin' In The Band
5Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Amazing guitar playing
While not without imperfection, this version gets at that misty quality central to the ethos of the tune.
Wow. Everyone is on during this great show, bob's guitar really does it for me. Won't you give it a listen!?
Scorching little ditty. Hard to believe this hasn't made it yet.
6Not Fade Away
Great finish to a great show.
9Me and Bobby McGee
Towards the end of a other one jam, this version is mellow, sweet and unpredictable.. a must listen for fans of this song!
6Brown Eyed Women
Great version in the middle of a stacked first set.
A bouncy second set opener that goes straight into the greatest Stephen Ever Played
Rocking, although Weir seems a little out of breath. Check out Jerry's scream after "...and the poor boy's on the line."
Phil jams with the RD's > TOO
Definitely should be on the list. Excellent Jed from a legendary show!!!
9China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Subtly experimental transition jam seems to hint at “Feelin’ Groovy” without stating the theme outright.
4Ramble On Rose
Much like the Philly version a week earlier, this one really shines.
3Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Jerry Hitting a mean solo in this one, just makes you want to dance!
Very humorous lines from Garcia during the last verse of this version, made me smile
2Beat it on Down The Line
Where the mix starts to come around
3Don't Ease Me In
This version told me to put it on this list
Last song to be nominated from this fantastic show...
