find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 20, 1980
West High Auditorium Anchorage, AK | Listen on archive
4Easy To Love You
I, personally, like the earlier versions better.
3Don't Ease Me In
Proves the boys could really swing when they wanted to. Hear Jerry on "The Girl I Love" line; like 'Gator Alley--1980 a good year for this tune
6Friend of the Devil
Killer version from a great show.
It's cold in Alaska, but this song was hot. BOOM.
Right out of the jack straw opener.. balls deep. This show is super fresh. Go, 80s dead!
2The Other One
Kicking Estimated Prophet->The Other One.
I cant believe this one hasnt made the list, crisp vocals and stellar guitar work, its like jerry is painting the air.
Great version with nice energy
5Let It Grow
Jerry really burns on this one. Surprised it's not yet posted
5Not Fade Away
Sick Drumz>NFa with some heavy Brent MOOG action. To me it's one of the more unique versions and should not be overlooked
Short but oh so sweet fuzzfest of Brent-centric gooyness seamlessly into a typically funkified 1980 NFA
Funky. Great jamming on this one
Bringing the Desert to Alaska, this one rocks heavy in the chilliest state!
4Lost Sailor -> Saint of Circumstance
In a heady show from Alaska, this suite fits perfectly in a sneaky brilliant show
3Ship of Fools
This one plays pretty true to form, but a strong, clean, and powerful rendition with nice guitar breakdowns from Jerry.
