Rockin cowboy song from a rockin cowboy show.

This thang rocks... super slow but the solo kicks ass. Groovin' hard.
Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad
March 28, 1972
Academy of Music

A rockin' GDTRFB sandwiched b/w two insane NFAs! Every show the dead played in 72 seemed to be another level!
Jack Straw
Dec. 19, 1973
Curtis Hixon Convention Hall

Super cool tricks and licks on this one. Definitely worth a listen!
Brown Eyed Women
Feb. 22, 1974
Winterland Arena

Fun to listen to, love these '74 BEW's!


Ramble On Rose
Sept. 21, 1972
The Spectrum

I see people saying that they aren't a big fan of this song and I can't for the life of me figure out why. Maybe they haven't heard this version :/
Playin' In The Band
Sept. 28, 1976
Onondaga County War Memorial

I for one love the intro. Gives themes of the orange tango jam they'd play in a little bit, almost a spanish/arabian vibe with tha harmonic minor phrasing. It's cool!
Playin' In The Band
March 23, 1974
Cow Palace

You know that moment 9 and a half minutes thru? That's what makes this one so pretty. Rich, intelligent and beautiful slower playing by the band. Always holds a special place in my heart, as I distinctly remember spinning this one on the drive home getting my driving license.
The Other One
May 13, 1972
Lille Fairgrounds

Such an underappreciated show. Flawless jamming, not a minute wasted and constant great ideas throughout. Give it a listen!
