find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead July 5, 1978
Omaha Civic Auditorium Omaha, NE | Listen on archive
20They Love Each Other
Easily one of the most sizzling sickest versions I've heard.
This one clicks and roars, one of my favorites of the year.
28Eyes Of The World
Another Phil dominated performance, brilliant Phil led exit jam into drums. Loads of Phil bombs on this one.
Great, high-energy show opener! Really feeling Jerry on this one.
10Ship of Fools
Jerry all over this version
20Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication
Great vocals by Bob during LL and then Jer is so pure during Supplication.
13Its All Over Now
Encore only available via box set. Incredible energy with extended fanning as should be expected from the only time played as an encore.
Part of a big second set jam, emerging from space and segueing into Truckin', Jerry really moves through the gears towards the end
Great version, Jerry on fire especially during the outro
3Around and Around
Goes into hyperdrive just before the 4 minute mark, long and fierce version, much more complex and interesting than the average
Nice and shot electric version.
Neat dark intro out of Truckin', melts its way up and down Jerry's neck; Bob's slide work nice layer
7Looks Like Rain
4Samson and Delilah
Slick, efficient Garcia solo, plus some cool flourishes by the Godchauxs.
2Beat it on Down The Line
Idk exactly what it it but this is rockin’ version
Phil carries this one
