find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead July 8, 1978
Red Rocks Amphitheatre Morrison, CO | Listen on archive
One of the best extended intros coming out of space. The whole band is very into it. You even get Phil shushing the crowd during the quiet parts.
Great stuff here
the rocks were melting on this infamous night
58Werewolves of London
little old lady got mutilated late last night..quintessential version
42Ship of Fools
Jerry's vocals set this one apart.
Classic version from a classic show.
Another great one from this show.
56Eyes Of The World
A smokin' Estimated Prophet->The Other One->Eyes Of The World.
37The Other One
A fantastic version from a fantastic show! Estimated Prophet->The Other One->Eyes Of The World.
59It Must Have Been The Roses
One of the most passionately sung Roses out there, all the Jerry ballads from these two nights at Red Rocks should be on the list.
29Ramble On Rose
Conjures circus tents, smoky saloons and Frankenstein in a souped-up '57 Chevy. Well worth a listen!
IMO the hands down best version of the song they've ever played
Scary freaking version with ghosty Donna wails. Nice transition into a tear-jerking Wharf Rat.
not a long version, but unique and awesome.
Legendary Terrapin Encore, I would put this in my personal top five. An absolutely ferocious final jam.
Bertha-> Good lovin', folks at red rocks got a treat
19Samson and Delilah
Red Rocks one of my favorite all time shows real hot Samson and Delilah, Hot version
20Drums -> Space
Estimated Prophet->The Other One-> Eyes Of The World->Drums->Space->Wharf Rat->Franklins Tower!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
13New Minglewood Blues
Totally hot version that has that energy heard throughout show.
Red Hot Rocks
1One More Saturday Night
I mean yeah it's squeezed between Terrapin and Werewolves in this legendary triple encore, but full of '78 energy
