find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Dec. 30, 1978
Pauley Pavilion Los Angeles, CA | Listen on archive
Majestic version that bleeds out of a spacey ollin arageed
6They Love Each Other
They groove this one straight through, and it's funkadelic heaven
8Looks Like Rain
Jerry soars and falls gracefully and Donna shines...truly beautiful rendition. Bob really performs with grace and power as well.
Jerry was totally on fire this night
Tons of fun! Locked in jamming the whole way.
13Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
The most awesomely minimalistic intro I've heard, and indescribably epic transition into a beautiful Fire
4New Minglewood Blues
Pauley Pavilion, UCLA on 1978-12-30... Love Bobby's strong introductory vocals, really jumpy version that leaves nothing to be desired.
perfect way to end an epic first set. jerry doing his best to extend the jam and then bring it home. outstanding.
Masterful, powerful version. They nail it.
From a very hot 1st set. The whole band shines.
way under rated show♡♡♡♡♡
"We used to play for silver, now we play for Clive . . ."
The band is tight and Jerry doesn't miss a beat. Seems like he's surfing with his guitar lines.
5Playin' In The Band
Short (and an AUD patch), but kicks off a wonderful sequence.
Speed kills! Choose in the pocket disco grooviness and you got what you need here... sublime.
2Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
One of those “surprised not to see this here” moments. A short, less soaring one than many this period, but fun nonetheless
3Around and Around
Donna lets out the most insane scream I’ve ever heard and the crowd goes wild lol. Fun one with harmonica action
