find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 26, 1977
Baltimore Civic Center Baltimore, MD | Listen on archive
22Brown Eyed Women
Just exactly perfect
Great up-tempo jam! Bobby and Jerry sound nice together
21Not Fade Away
Insane. Ridiculous. Drummers locked in, Garcia in take-no-prisoners mode. 16+ minutes of full-bore Rock to the G-D Roll.
So damn funky; killer groove. I'm a stickler for vocals, and Bob sings this one beautifully. High energy '77 version.
An excellent rendition
20Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Can't believe the heads are sleeping on this one. 8 1/2 mins of nectar after NFA
10Samson and Delilah
NOT just another '77 version. Insanely-tight jamming, 2nd set opener, KEITH, JERRY, PHIL! Best version I've heard.
NOT just another '77 version. BIG bridge solo, pure Jerry/Donna backing vocals, scary Mutron solo into Eyes. One of the best.
Pure Donna vocals, and raging Garcia solo before the last verse. Donna sounds great throughout this entire show—it's a real smoker.
Wow, not on here yet??!! Folks, this is where it's at...yet another smooth, flawless May '77 solo
15Eyes Of The World
Powerful melodic jamming on this one
16The Music Never Stopped
Just listen to Jerry! Donna's harmonies are great as well.
10Jack A Roe
MAy 1977 Pure Magic
Excellent Big River with some Disco flair.
Fast pace tight jammed 3 months after the debut.
4Uncle John's Band
The encore of the penultimate show of May 1977. It's short, but these people are practiced at this date.
Rock music as it should be. The band is really on this night and this song just flies.
3New Minglewood Blues
2Around and Around
In any other month in any other year, this entire show would be considered a rip-roaring classic (which it is!!). Donna is awesome.
5Looks Like Rain
Donna and Bobby sound great together while Jers guitar provides the rain.
