Grateful Dead: Dick's Picks 25

$ 57.98

This pair of Grateful Dead shows, taken from an extended East Coast run in the Spring of 1978, not only were among the best of the year, but with the loving touch of Bear and Betty Cantor-Jackson at the controls rank as one of the most beautifully recorded entries in the Dick's Picks series. Both concerts which appear here minus just two and three songs, respectively find the group in exceptionally lyrical form on ballads like "Loser," "Stella Blue," "Looks Like Rain," and "They Love Each Other." Also not to be missed is a superlative, slowed-down version of "Friend of the Devil" and the rare performance of Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" as an encore (the band only played it about a dozen times live). Full of diamonds for Deadheads.
