find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead June 10, 1973
RFK Stadium Washington, DC | Listen on archive
full of bass and spacey
Very heartfelt rendition
53Eyes Of The World
since I can't just say "all 1973 Eyes", this trip gets my vote...
38Here Comes Sunshine
phil plays melody all over, jerry plays stoned and succinctly, love his vocal expression, rainbow sunshine stone music, but a very tight version!!!
27They Love Each Other
hot and sweaty blues
28It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry
So much goodness in this show. Allmans join in on this one to make it a classic.
A killer Eyes Of The World->Stella Blue
25That's All Right
1) An awesome bluesy jam vehicle.. 2) When the hell did you ever hear them bust this one out? 3) This is the '73 RFK Show. That should be enough :)
You might think it a throw-away song, but they just burn it up so ferociously that you know they took it seriously....
Soaring solid and focused version from one of the top shows of the year.
17Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
Outrageous 3rd Set madness with the Allman Bros, inside an amazing NFA.
Finger pickin' good.
How is there no love for this TITANIC version?
16Not Fade Away
Awesome jammin with the Allman Bros.
11Box of Rain
Country stylings on this one.
10Ramble On Rose
Fantastic following the Morning Dew opener, this one is rocking and rolling and has me dancing like a fool. Great stuff.
6U.S. Blues (Wave That Flag)
Impress your chick!!!!
Tight and packing a punch!
5Johnny B. Goode
Great way to close off the set w/ Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks & Merl Saunders
Relaxed and joyous space-age electric guitar semi-ballad.
Not my favorite song but an excellent version. Bobby rocks out.
6Looks Like Rain
Jazzy version from a great show
7Around and Around
Right between a sweet Here Comes Sunshine and an all-time Dark Star, the boys rip a quick A&A. Nice interplay between Keith and Jer
Dark Star> He's Gone > Wharf Rat > Truckin'. RFK 73. A great sequence at, in my opinion, the show of the year
Solid. Doesn't blast you to the moon necessarily, but a fine display of some summertime jammin' at one of the shows of the year
5Beat it on Down The Line
Beginning's cut off but it cuts into a mighty fine version.
Billy and Butch Trucks...towards the end of the longest show of their career!
