find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead April 18, 1982
Hartford Civic Center Hartford, CT | Listen on archive
7Ship of Fools
Wore the tape out on an old AUD of this version. Just re-upped on a nice SBD. Beautiful rendition of this delicate ballad. Hot string of shows too
Sugar > Playin' Jam > Sunshine, Noice!
15Drums -> Space
2C. C. Rider
A standout version from a great show.
2Playin' In The Band
One of the best second sets of the year.
1Eyes Of The World
Jerry and Brent have some crazy ESP going on in this one
Phil's Earthquake Space needs to be listed, funny, scary, bizarre. With the Raven space the following night in Baltimore, two great shows in a row.
5Cold Rain and Snow
Solid version from a great show, give it a listen.
3Samson and Delilah
Bobby tells us "it''s time for your Sunday sermon" but it's Brent that's all over this smoking version.
Jerry's solo is phenomenal.
2Let It Grow
Jerrys just RIPS it in a really intense, building ending section, nice and long as well, 12 minutes
1Friend of the Devil
Rousing, rollicking, assured. Another on night in the constitution
1Ramble On Rose
welcome wink of a heel-diggingly true pure rendering. Spiky and down home like jerry and hunter's best evocations of timeless tribulation and delitez.
2Looks Like Rain
80s are a goldmine for LLR's, this one wirey, lustrous and cinematic.
