find the best versions of grateful dead songs
Grateful Dead Oct. 19, 1980
Saenger Performing Arts Center New Orleans, LA | Listen on archive
Wildly jammed, possibly the finest acoustic version ever, despite the skeevy sound
opens the first electric set at the wonderful new reopened saenger theatre. an extended jam has the boys in sync and hitting every imagined note.
honestly hocked this particular one was not here yet, all are heady this is awesome
Just because the crowd loved hearing this in New Orleans, for obvious reasons
4Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain
The transition jam has several peaks before entering Fire Both versions have some excellent moments
Wonderful acoustic gem from New Orleans La.
Interesting slightly unique version of the classic Garcia/Hunter tune.
1Looks Like Rain
Wonderfully emotional, extremely high level of intensity and full of energy.
Somewhat sloppy then they hit the exit jam into drums and pure magic takes place, one of the best exit jams EVER!
Bobby performing his heart out. Jerry is engaged and the band is tight. AUD is great. A must listen!
1Jack A Roe
AUD sounds great and puts you in the heart of this charmed crowd. Jerry sounds great, the acoustic is enchanting, and the band is ON! '80 Dead gold!
Best 80's Rosalie McFall? Great clap along, very strong tempo and delivered near flawless. Jerry sounds amazing. Acoustic beauty. A must listen!
1They Love Each Other
The intervals and touch and chromatic phrases in the solo are fantastic
One of the best solos I've heard on this tune. If you like your solos light on notes and heavy on feeling, listen up.
1Samson and Delilah
Brent and Jerry all over this one - strong Samson in between the Warfield and RCMH
