find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead May 14, 1978
Providence Civic Center Providence, RI | Listen on archive
25Mississippi Halfstep Uptown Toodeloo
Awesome mellow version
51Let It Grow
A strong post 74 version
23Looks Like Rain
a good version with a fierce Garcia solo
8It Must Have Been The Roses
a very strong version of the highly overlooked song in the GD cannon
28Brown Eyed Women
1978 was a good year for this song. Very punchy and bouncy version here.
9Eyes Of The World
Plenty happening on this one to warrant a listen. Nice segue into 'Drums'.
13They Love Each Other
Features a beautiful solo from Jerry that doesn't falter despite its intricacy. You can hear the crowd roar its approval on the excellent SBD.
16Not Fade Away
West LA Fadeaway jam in the transition jam to GDTRFB
20Samson and Delilah
30 Trips Around the Sun
30 Trips ... Scorching
Rip-roaring Big River
12Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Nice mellow version. It had become somewhat rare in 78-79 so I'm surprised this isn't listed. Give it a listen.
9Ship of Fools
Great Jerry leads throughout this one.
The latter half of a great on-two punch to kick off the show (1/2 step preceding), this Cassidy is an absolute bute. Bob/Jer communication is tight
