find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 4, 1977
The Forum Inglewood, CA | Listen on archive
Based on set list alone, the jam portion stands out...this Terrapin kicks it off very powerfully
11Eyes Of The World
Magical eyes from an underrated show
Where is the love for this show?? A monster transition from Playin' into Franklins. Huge version, that blows the roof off the forum.
Powerful Estimated>Eyes, from a monster Spring 77' show.
8Playin' In The Band
estimated>eyes>drums>good lovin>terrapin>playin>franklin's>space>china doll>not fade>playin reprise. One of the most insane set-lists of the year.
9Not Fade Away
Absolutely nuts version. Twice as fast as usual, I would stack this up with cornell.
Nice slow shuffle, and Jerry's playing is quite melodic. But he brings the heat at the end (with some help from Keith).
Nice version in the middle of a huge Set II. Whole set is worth a listen!
7The Music Never Stopped
A steamroller of a version, that only provides an inkling of what was too come in the second set
5Friend of the Devil
Wonderful run through this great tale, Jerry nails this
2Samson and Delilah
Thumping version, crisp and funky
Wonderful LOVE candyman, a sweet 77 version.
6Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Smokes from head to tail. No SBD, or this would be top 5 with ease.
6Pretty Peggy O
Powerful and incandescent. I’ll admit Peggy-O can sometimes bore me, but not this one!
3Brown Eyed Women
smooth '77 version
2New Minglewood Blues
Dang! A sbd would really put this into orbit, with the likes of 5/7 (with all respect to the quality aud) )
Great explosive '77 one!
1Ship of Fools
Beautifully-played second set version here
