find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 26, 1977
Baltimore Civic Center Baltimore, MD | Listen on archive
30Brown Eyed Women
Just exactly perfect
Great up-tempo jam! Bobby and Jerry sound nice together
28Not 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
28Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Can't believe the heads are sleeping on this one. 8 1/2 mins of nectar after NFA
18Samson 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
26Eyes Of The World
Powerful melodic jamming on this one
24The Music Never Stopped
Just listen to Jerry! Donna's harmonies are great as well.
15Jack A Roe
MAy 1977 Pure Magic
Excellent Big River with some Disco flair.
Fast pace tight jammed 3 months after the debut.
8Uncle 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.
9New Minglewood Blues
7Around 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.
12Looks Like Rain
Donna and Bobby sound great together while Jers guitar provides the rain.
