find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Oct. 14, 1983
Hartford Civic Center
Shocked this one isn't on the list - hands down the best version of the 80's. The Rusty Strings part raises hair every time.

Jerry's 1st east coast version since the bust. Starts mellow but the drummers build a unique groove. Jerry's obviously motivated to build this 1.

Near clone of 9-18-87 but being at the Cap Centre instead of MSG it does not get the recognition. Just a notch below 9-18-87.,mk
It Must Have Been The Roses

Heard this yesterday and blew me away, an absolute gem!
The Other One
Oct. 27, 1979
Cape Cod Coliseum
This version is top 5 all time, stunned that it's this low. People Phil's Frickin' best intro ever.....totally shakes the concrete loose in this building...and keeps dropping bombs while the boys really are intense on this one. Killer.....just killer.

Just head this one for the first time and after it I said to myself "best one ever"?
