find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Aug. 14, 1971
Berkeley Community Theater Berkeley, CA | Listen on archive
Not sure which is better, this one or 8/6/71...latter is a better recording, this one more soul?
phil got the chuba, pig the wooley booley, jer playin high, playin low.
11Hard to Handle
Another great version from August.
16The Other One
Crunchy Phil goodness with a chewy surprise inside
4Big Railroad Blues
Maybe the best pure hard riving Rock&Roll version. Lean, mean, and Jerry supreme!
You will love it.
Smokin' out of control
2Playin' In The Band
Packs a lot into its 4.5 short minutes. Great bass-heavy SBD gives you a Phil masterclass. Love the short ones, love the long ones....
Whole show is heady, deserves more love
4Not Fade Away
Just jerry and phil on the jam, absolutely insane
6Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
NFA>GDTRFB>NFA is pure joy
JG beams out killer tones while Phil crushes heads in the People's Repbulic.
4Uncle John's Band
2nd half of a double encore - listen to Jerry's unique phrasing so different then later versions.
2Johnny B. Goode
In true hard rocking '71 fashion - cover yer nuts.
Another snapshot of Phil's prominence throughout these Berkeley shows.
Can never have too much Phil
3Big Boss Man
just listen to Jerry and Phil. twang city in the intro, perfect Pig vocal
