Grateful Dead Sept. 16, 1972

Boston Music Hall Boston, MA | Listen on archive

Users have designated the following versions as heady!
Dark Star
Amazed this isn't here yet Gorgeous, melodic, jazz-infused, mellow, trippy, spacey into hard ripping Jerry riffs; melts into Brokedown Palace. Sublime
Playin' In The Band
An enjoyable listen, but most notable, I'd say, for an excellent little peak that rises up like a volcano towards the end of the jam.
Morning Dew
Jerry really belts this one out. All of the attention to detail that you'd expect in a version from this era plus a good bridge solo.
Brokedown Palace
This melts like a dream from a weirdly underrated Dark Star & is sung beautifully by Jerry & played sweetly by all. Give a listen!
Black Throated Wind
No bad ones at all from this era, but listen in and you can hear Jerry drive Bobby higher and higher. Great powerful emotive energy.
Jack Straw
Listen through the murky AUD and you'll find a powerhouse version that clearly blew the doors off. Crowd energy contributes to a great version.
Big Railroad Blues
Really needs a cleanup, or some miracle tapes to clear the sound on this little gem. They were on. Where's the rest of the SB?
Greatest Story Ever Told
Streaks across the sky like a comet. Choose the SBD version, you won't regret it. Bobby and Donny are totally on together.
Bird Song
No sbd... yeah, well this aud works just fine
He's Gone
13 min Sept 72
Big River
Most Swingin Version Nominee
Ripping opener with a unique solo from Jerry!
You Win Again
Musta been great to have caught one of these; this one delivers, great stuff
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Rousing! 72's got many of the best/ favorites
