find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Samson and Delilah
June 7, 1977
This is a cool version in that the segue out of Drums is pretty gradual and smooth, there's an intro jam of sorts here that's unique

This is a great version but Jerry somehow messes up the "nothing left to do but smile smile smile" line, which is my favorite part of this song.

Jerry has some effect on his guitar here that I've not really heard before? Absolutely beautiful, this is such an amazing take on this song. Just exactly perfect

St. Paul Civic Center Arena
Really like this one - almost as much as the Winterland one a few weeks later. This one is a little more upbeat. And Jerry wishes the crowd goodbye after!

Agree with all the others, I've listened to a lot of versions of this song and this one is the best. The reason - that solo in the middle of the song is second-to-none.
