find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Nov. 24, 1978
Capitol Theatre Passaic, NJ | Listen on archive
Jer rips some blistering leads on this one. Clearly the definitive performance.
soulful and great delivery
One of the first really solid versions. Great show, even with Jerry's throat issues
Jerry's voice is rough but great playing
Jerry's voice is rough but he rips on guitar
4I Need A Miracle
Another early workup of the song, Jerry's voice for this show not that great but the playing is fantastic!
7Me and My Uncle
Definitely a sleeper gem. Just exactly perfect. Vocals, groove, execution... They all come together here!
Can't beat this version, espeically when factoring in that it is sandwiched between the best Friend of the Devil I have ever heard and a killer ShakeD
11Friend of the Devil
Purely awesome, from the first note to the last.
Jerry's guitar work is unreal on this one...
Garcia gives it his all. Rippin' solos, and clear concise leads. Voice is a little rough, but he manages to hit pretty high levels of insanity.
Deep, this gem is fantastic as always, truly cosmic music
14Fire On The Mountain
Excellent stand alone Fire on the Mountain it rolls so nicely out of Ollin, Very heady reminiscent of Egypt. Very cosmic and Heady
6From the Heart of Me
Sunlight turning red.....
Cool uptempo version with solid vocals.
Absolute scorcher to end the first set
1All New Minglewood Blues
Not the best recording (Beyond Description) but the performance definitely makes up for that
