find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 6, 1970
Capitol Theater Port Chester, NY | Listen on archive
Some really nimble guitar work by Jerry. Ripping version
4Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Unique, as it goes into a very brief 'Mountain Jam' sounding jam before heading back into NFA. Pretty hot version
Heady as fuck. In a flat-out brutal jam.
5Turn On Your Love Light
Starts out and ends as pure spitfire, but takes the time for a slinky Main Ten in the middle.
2Not Fade Away
AMAZING, Jerry going in and out of the Mountain Jam theme, this is some heady $#!+
Jerry drops in some mountain jam during a sizzling hot NFA->GDTRFB medley
5Friend of the Devil
Sweet acoustic masterpiece. Another fantastic wooden and speedy
1Deep Elem Blues
Whoa sweet mama! Back to this show and every note seems worth a shoutout.
2Ain't It Crazy (The Rub)
Awesome acoustic version!!!
Early acoustic version.
1Uncle John's Band
This is one of the better acoustic versions of this song. The sound quality isn't the best but the performance is spot on.
This really nice early Candy Man. This one is after Truckin. The first two are sound checks, I think.
The steel guitar, which I assume Jerry is playing, really helps to make this early version a good one.
It's to bad that the audio quality is so bad on this one. the playing and vocal harmonies are on the money.
1I Know You Rider
An outstanding stand alonne Rider. Energetic, country goodness here.
Jerrys vocals are in top form on this one.Just acoustic gutars here, jusr right.
A forgtten Truckin, possibly my favorite.
1Attics of My Life
From an all acoustic set. Tight harmonies on this one.
1Don't Ease Me In
Good acoustic version of this song. The audio quality isn't as good as the 05/70 versions but the playing and vocals are quite good.
