Grateful Dead - Hard to Handle
Below you'll find a user-submitted list of the best Grateful Dead Hard to Handle.
Insane rager, hold on to your seats
Played a week before the 8/6/71 version, but super hot also. Both versions are a part of Road Trips Vol1-3.
Not sure why the next night gets all the love, this one's great, too!
When I'm a little hard to handle I load this up and pull the trigger. I'm surprised no one submitted this one yet.
Starts off with Pigpen improving lyrics then Bobby and Jerry battle off each other beautifully. Give it a listen!!
The Bear's Choice version.
Possibly the best out of this Fillmore East run..listen to the boys explode during the jam, an 8/6/71 contender
Certainly not number one, but worthy to be listed.
Pigpen's voice is deep, SC-soaked and clear. The jam is ballsy and pushing out against the seams.
Another great version from August.
Fantastic early H2H when Jer was still rippin' it with the slide!
Not as long as they'd become but the jamming is intense
