find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Dec. 30, 1991
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Oakland, CA | Listen on archive
Most painful tease I ever heard live. I wanted Jerry to start singing sooo bad.
8Saint of Circumstance
Great Saint, though the goods are in the MLB > Dear Prudence jam that follows. I can only imagine the level of blue balls in the house for that tease
Vince really nals his lines with a spot on Dylan impersonation.
Excellent reading of Birdsong at this under-rated show. Pure version.
Definitive version, over 7 mins long and in no way treated as the afterthought that it became.
Crunchy at the start and then Jerry works is sweet with the pitch bender
3Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
Solid version from Oakland.
2Wang Dang Doodle
Outstanding. Soulful, sneaky blues.
I prefer earlier versions, but this is a nice later-era big river
