find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 23, 1973
County Coliseum El Paso, TX | Listen on archive
They put a little extra oomph on this for the El Paso crowd
8Greatest Story Ever Told
Keith steals this one. Nice groove
17Eyes Of The World
This one cooks nicely. Great era for the song
12Weather Report Suite
VERY spicy, down on the border jams!!!
4Looks Like Rain
So very tender. Check out Jerry's beautiful solo during the bridge!
Nov. '73 and there isn't a bad show in it. This Loser has something special in its tightness and the tempo (doesn't drag). Damn they were good.
5The Race Is On
Cool version full of Bill.
11The Other One
This is most notable, I'd say, for the absolutely nuclear bomb that Phil drops during the 'Space' portion. Play it loud on a big rig!
Wonderful He's Gone->Truckin->The Other One sequence. Stellar 1973 Magic
Wickedly Hot Truckin, stellar sequence Typical 1973 excellence
7China Cat Sunflower -> I Know You Rider
3Johnny B. Goode
Keith really likes this song!
If possible, a very contemplative TJ. Everyone's in apex '73 form, esp. Godchaux who's mixed fairly high to good effect.
Well played, gets the show off to a good start
What is this, chopped liver?
Keith's on fire.
2Me and My Uncle
Lots of energy
3Me and Bobby McGee
Beautiful transition from The Other One. Bobby singing is soulful. Amazing
Jerry's fingers can't stop! No wonder Deal comes next.
Swings and shimmies before busting out the heavy artillery.
Drips out of a great the other one. Followed by a jaunty Bobby McGee 1973 jazzy goodness to this space
