find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 8, 1969
Fillmore West San Francisco, CA | Listen on archive
DP 16. hour and a half jam, spanning 6 different songs, some reprised
9Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Despite a few glitches in the recording itself, this one smokes!
30 minutes Caution from 1969
18The Other One
very good version from Dick's Picks 16
this one is just smokey and slow and a little off beat like most good versions of easy wind
10China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
Ripping primal Dead version. The transition is absolutely choatic with everyone barelling ahead like a northbound train into Rider! DP's 16
11Uncle John's Band
No words just melody, sandwiched in an epic DS jam. Cool to hear it before they added words, unique and definitely worth the listen.
Perfect reading of this song.
This version has some of the most heartfelt and passionate vocals.
I like these 10 minute versions that are focused and hard hitting.
Great show with 6 song DS sangwich. Classic 1969 Stephen.
3And We Bid You Goodnight
Everybody's in on this one - Jer Bob and Phil. start off creaky then drive it home.
Constanten really adds to the texture of this, exciting feedback!
First one -- rough and ready... for a long and very interesting life
Hard drivin' with a country twang
1Next Time You See Me
Gritty, worthy of mention
Great early version
