find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 4, 1978
Campus Stadium - University Of California Santa Barbara, CA | Listen on archive
A great Bertha->Good Lovin'
For the love of Jerry you MUST listen to this immediately. Cease all other activities and prepare to have your jaw hit the floor!
14Not Fade Away
The revving Harley out of “Space” to the beat of NFA makes this version fun and unique and it also shreds, Garcia is clearly having a blast.
6U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Another amazing version from ’78, close second to Durham when Garcia’s belts out the final “My O My’s”
Part of a very hardcore rock and roll 2nd set. HEAVY wailing Drums>Space>NFA w/motorcycle revs.
Jerry's voice is shot, but his tone is DIALED.
3Looks Like Rain
Part of me wishes they tried this hard all the time. Very nice version.
6Samson and Delilah
Shredded by Jer and Bob was a little slide happy in 78, but works well.
Jerry is worth a listen on this one. He doesn't want to stop.
5Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Strike match light fuse and watch it burn - hootn' & hollerin is a happenin.
7Around and Around
They flip the switch at 4:05 then go for cool down then close with some Katie bar the door jammin.
Encore to a smokin' show.
5Drums -> Space
excellent space very out there, hells ngel rides harley onstage leading into a hot NFA
7Eyes Of The World
blistering pace Jerry just shredding. high energy version from a high energy show
8Brown Eyed Women
High energy as is the entire show, foot on the accelerator
3Ship of Fools
If you've stumbled upon this, listen to this show. Underrated gem with TONS of energy. Same goes for this version. Everyone on stage having fun.
An exceptional performance from a one off show in summer '78.
Strong post-hiatus version - Phil thundering away on this one. Love how Jerry belches out "BOYS sing 'round the fire"
Hot Good Lovin with the band all over it, Phil thundering away. SBD sounds extremely good, typical hot Bertha>Good Lovin show opener
