find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Oct. 28, 1977
Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Hall Kansas City, KS | Listen on archive
Seething, edgy, hard rocking ending this one. ENERGY!
9Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Funky and FAST!
Nearly twenty minutes of He's Gone goodness -- jam goes into Drums then NFA but stays squarely in He's Gone territory with some very nice interplay.
4Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Supplication!!! I know Keith is playing cheesy bullshit - maybe that's why the other 5 guys are on fire?
There's a Betty Board of this one available. And it's gorgeous. What's stopping you?
Slow long version with nice solo at end. I think this one is so good due to the NFA before it and the smoking GDTRFB after.
2Around and Around
I hate this song, but this a great one!
Decidedly not great.
Perfect, with some filthy guitar in the outro.
1Brown Eyed Women
Every bit the equal of Cornell. 8/24/80 still has a better solo, but this is 1977 y'all.
Embodies that deliberate, fluid ’77 lilt, upon which some fanning ignites the runout
5Not Fade Away
Rowdy, then ebbs into a slower jam to Stella
2Samson and Delilah
