Heady Version

I recently launched a website that allows you to discuss, vote on, and listen to the 'best' versions of dead songs. Check out headyversion.com - a ton of the shows mentioned here are on the site, plus a lot more. We're approaching 800 versions on there!

Peggy-O

Peggy-O: July 1, 1980, San Diego. I got passed the tape just a few weeks after - in Colorado, what a network. Jerry's solo guitar so sweet.

truckin'

If the buildup ( I don't know the correct term) at the end of Truckin works than it's the best song being played at that time. I'm thinking 73>74, 77>78, 89>90, had the best performances.
As far as covers go, I never heard a Big River or Promised Land I didn't like.

My Favorite Looks Like Rain

Looks Like Rain from Columbia 1985 is by far my favorite. Booby was running all over the stage. I've been to several shows but never saw him this "Happy" Fall '85 still my favorite tour

He's Gone 6-26-73

Just have been listening to this one the last 3 nights, I love it! it is the closest one I have heard to 9-18-74. Crazy! a year and a half later...almost sounds like the next night. this is my new second favorite. This is why i fell in love and became a lifetime addict to this band. If you all gave 6-26-73 a listen which was posted however long ago, please give 9-18-74 a listen, they are so close! it is very weird, the 73 is available in matrix, 74 has one of the best sounding sounbaords I have ever heard but without the crowd, and in my opinion the version is just a touch better. but matrixs are way cooler than soundboreds. i dont, know, i guess they are a tie.
excuse me I am drunk and listening now to the 73 one AGAIN!!!
isnt this a cool thread!.
thanks to whoever posted hes gone 6-26-73, I love it! just once more part of pride 9-14-74 gets me off a touch more
