find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Oct. 12, 1984
Augusta Civic Center Augusta, ME | Listen on archive
I can't believe this one isn't even listed yet WOW!! this mid 80's Dew could possibly be the most intense version the GD did from 80'-95
56Uncle John's Band
Part of a 2nd set for the ages; flows in & out of PITB teases & then reprises into killer Dew
14Playin' In The Band
My favorite "sandwich" version, this PITB actually begins in the 2nd set as reprise from the previous night! Insane weaving thru UJB/Space/Dew
42Cold Rain and Snow
Kicks off with authority a 2d set every DeadHead needs to hear. Perfect bookend to Jerry's scorching Dew. They say it was cold&rainy that nite in ME.
61Feel Like A Stranger
Incredible jam - tight ending.
20The Music Never Stopped
Killer version from a killer show!!
If this show was a football game it would be the super bowl!!!
16On The Road Again
A smokin' electric version.
Crowd eruption, an encore to close possibly the best 2nd set of the 80's, powerful and addictive at the beginning, the closing bridge goes on forever
24It Must Have Been The Roses
Put this one-two in with the best ever opening combos. Stranger>MHBTR.
24Don't Need Love
Great vocals from Brent, band does well backing him too
Big, boomy, mountain-scary drums from one of the best shows in '84. Hair-raising.
39Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
One of the best 84 has to offer.. this one always does it for me
13Its All Over Now
Superb Brent solo, and Bob's all over the lyrics here. Nice and uptempto too!
12Jack A Roe
From one of the most powerful shows of the 80s. This whole show is outstanding
Whopping marimba-laden, a hot, and wobbly excursion into '84 Space. Luxuriantly gorgeous though threatening.
