find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 9, 1973
RFK Stadium Washington, DC | Listen on archive
blues jump ripper. groovaaaaaay looooosay
Inspired and powerful. Tight performance.
Nice steady heady growing rocker on this.
Damn fine set closer. Tight and right.
Long journey. Jer moves out of the nebulae toward HCS around 10:50, but the cosmos moved into Playin' instead. Epic indeed.
3Me and My Uncle
Badass. Jer's right on top of it and the band is shitkickingly in your face.
3Looks Like Rain
Bob Sounds so goood on this
6Eyes Of The World
Classic Eyes<China Doll. Nearly all of the versions from 73' are great, but this is one of the best.
9Playin' In The Band
Nice jamming on this one
5China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Controlled yet passionate. Almost Mozartean.
4Box of Rain
This is a great version.
A dreamy, airy, beauty right here...Phil riffs all over it Jerry's vocal and the harmonies are special.
5Greatest Story Ever Told
After Donna's wails the last minute is another deep in the pocket rippin' Stephen jam
With a gentle breezy playfulness that all the best takes share.
3They Love Each Other
Delivers the pep for your step - swings brightly.
A standout version.
2Beat it on Down The Line
Summer of '73 heat.
Hot hot encore.
They get off to a rollicking start
Comes after a superb Playin'. Spectacular as always.
1Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Rough beginning, but gets progressively better
