find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 18, 1974
Freedom Hall Louisville, KY | Listen on archive
Just something about this one... Eerily beautiful
15Ramble On Rose
This one's a winner
194Eyes Of The World
Great version from a great show. I love June '74!
Too many good ones to say this is the best ever, but it belongs in the conversation
107The Other One
Hot damn can't believe this one hasn't been mentioned yet! Too much for words, just listen - this is the hottest of 1974 and one of the best ever!!!
5Ship of Fools
12Beat it on Down The Line
Jerry throws in a riff from My Old Kentucky Home!
The freakin harmonies on this one I miss that trio singing Euro 72 style. Back when Phil could sing that high
Kicks off potentially the most epic set 2, with a bouncy excellent version of the song. Forget the lyrical flubs.
The best one you can find besides 11/11/73, which is the playin>elpaso>playin sandwhich. TRUST ME
This whole show just has it. The best versions of this song are played with patience into the bridge and the backgrounds are key. This ones a clinic.
39Let It Grow
Let Grow 20 min into a jamming other one
Top shelf version, one of the best.
Light first half of a titanic encore. The anniversary's coming up, might as well give the show a listen...
5It Must Have Been The Roses
In addition to the great playing throughout this first set, you can grin at the several musical references to the Derby that the boys threw in.
Insanely fast and precise
21Black Throated Wind
Great show from Louisville KY @ Freedom Hall. One hell of a show.
1Playin' In The Band
Such a nice version. Very complex with every member giving it their best. All sorts of changes throughout.
