find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead April 26, 1972
Jahrhunderthalle Frankfurt, | Listen on archive
One of the first versions of any dead song to hook me. On point Euro '72 style
82Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Rockin' version. Get up and get some
47Comes A Time
The saddest and most intimate, inspiring and mysterious.
42Playin' In The Band
a shorter version, but that frees it up to me more intense
24Black Throated Wind
Europe '72 versions of this song are just phenomenal. This one is no exception
68Turn On Your Love Light
While the Hundred Year Hall CD is out of order the music on it is great...check this Lovelight out if you got the album
82The Other One
Hundred Year Hall - One of the longest and spaciest ever, cool Clementine style riff in the middle
17Next Time You See Me
Hundred Year Hall version.
A classic Europe '72 version.
Feeling hot Hot HOT!
Great Europe '72 version
24Greatest Story Ever Told
Pure shreddery! This one peaks with passion
23One More Saturday Night
All out ballsy rocker
20China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Stark bluesy IKYR with Pigpen backing vocals - the best.
Uptempo, almost a shuffle, like the best of the '72s. High energy 1st set.
Hard rocker. Great interplay and the band at the top of their '72 game. "No. 1 in Turlock, and that's a fact". - Bobby.
21Big Railroad Blues
Pumping energy, strong backbeat, and poignant guitar solo.
Hate to be the person who says, "How the f**k is this not here", but HOW THE F**K IS THIS ONE NOT ON THE LIST!
25Two Souls in Communion
C'mon, this is SURELY the definitive version?! Pigpen is so strong yet so poignantly vulnerable in this cut, with perfect fills from Jerry and Bill.
33Me and My Uncle
This needs more votes. It's confident, solid, well-delivered, and bouncy as hell.
So good. Gives me the chills everytime. Solid groove emerges, I'd give my left nut to see this live.
13You Win Again
Moseying version. Jerry lays down buttery licks and Keith rides some nice fills. Zippidy doo dah tuning jam to follow
The consistency on this tour is silly
Another epic from europe 72
second set version from europe 72
One of the perfect ones, and one of the last songs from this epic show to be posted here: A near perfect show from '72, one of the best.
Because every song in this show deserves to be here. This is a solid rocking version, just excellent.
5Beat it on Down The Line
Strong Bobby lead vocals w/nice harmonizing backing vocals & tasteful Jerry leads & a rockin' solo, high energy.
Connnective tissue of the cosmos
