find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead April 24, 1978
Horton Field House - Illinois State University Normal, IL | Listen on archive
23It Must Have Been The Roses
144The Music Never Stopped
Spacey and cool.
60Me and My Uncle
Stayin' Alive tease to open and significant teases by Keith throughout. Most interesting version by far - (teases continue into a romping Big River)
Stayin' Alive teases carried over from Me and My Uncle. Ballsy version
205Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
Holy shit this is hot
10Not Fade Away
Excellent 2nd set. Terrapin>Drums>Space>NFA>Black Peter>Around and Around!!!
Outstanding NFA>Black Peter. One of the cooler late 70's versions. Jerry voice is so tender!
Whoa! Build ups, clean jams, and awesome drumming by the devils
57Brown Eyed Women
here's the right one, a solid version
50Ramble On Rose
A cool version from a great show.
A decent Promised Land till the end, when the band just hits another gear completely, kicking off a superb show.
31Friend of the Devil
Beautiful and Creative Jerry/Bob Solos!
Full of Energy, Jerry is ripping!
29Werewolves of London
5Close Encounters Jam
"space" after drums before not fade away. Maybe just jerry messin around with the mu-tron but sounds like encounters to me.
Dynamic and skillfully played version, featured on Dave's Picks 7
6Fire On The Mountain
Jerry's Mutron magic and Bobby's noodling slide make this version unique. So much energy here.
12Drums -> Space
I don't usually think about a "heady" version here but Damn!! this some trippy stuff leading into a great NFA
