find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 13, 1972
Lille Fairgrounds Lille, | Listen on archive
Slowed down and not coked out. Pretty.
28The Other One
Fiery opening. Exciting & engaging exploratory middle part. Great climax with Pig's organ sound like the Police is on the way to shut the show!
9Not Fade Away
Very good with interesting closing jam before it fades into GDTRFB
16Playin' In The Band
A lovely little gem. The outro jam is starting to stretch.
15Black Throated Wind
Another super tight version from E72 with hot ending.
10China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Awesome version. Bob basically takes lead on the transition. Pretty cool playing by him. Worth a listen.
9Big Railroad Blues
Smokin' version from Lille. Not a lot of hype from this unknown show, but def. has some tasty stuff.
11Hurts Me Too
11Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Just an awesome version!
7One More Saturday Night
One of the best Europe concerts
It seems all of the best versions are from Europe
nice opener in Europe
Another great one from the Europe 72 tour
6Beat it on Down The Line
Heady set one version from France
4Me and My Uncle
another hot cowboy tune from europe 72
another beautiful europe 72 sugaree
another hot one in Europe
8Next Time You See Me
Wow so many hot ones from the european tour
sweet version from europe 1972
Distinctly slower, with a greasier funk vibe. Surprised it isn't here. Different from the others and lots of fun.
Unforgivable that you guys overlook Truckin'. There's a reason it's the one song non-heads know. This one is a forgotten colossus. Listen up.
Perfect musical sunshine. This one even got my not-at-all-into-the-Dead wife to dance around like a trippin' hippy, so you know it's good.
Typically tasty Truckin' > TOO bridge on this tour...
