As I'll continue to trash the horrible, terrible beast that is 10/9/89 if it in fact did happen, the breakout at Shoreline on 9/29/89 is a monster. Garcia just crushes the solo. If ever he rose to an occasion, this was it!

I'll agree about that Hampton one...The last one (4/2/90) is pretty good and if I recall i enjoyed the one I saw in Philly in 89. I always loved 1/16/70 Portland, out of an Eleven jam. And of course the Live Dead version. Chilling.

1969-03-02: The Crypt > TOO > Crypt > Death Don't suite might be my favorite piece of music ever played by the band.

I love the 1989 Warlocks version as well.

edit: Have to mention the 10-12-68 version as well. Could be a best ever. I don't recall Kochman's 10-13. Will have to get that on tonight.

I really dig the Dead's version of this song. Lately, I have rediscovered Hot Tuna and their wonderful rendition.

As yet another Dead sighting, Bob Weir sits in with Hot Tuna and sings Death Don't Have No Mercy on Live at Sweet Water (can't remember if its volume one or two)

I was thinking about this one last night, as I read the thread about Robert Johnson, his selling his soul to the devil and all.

I distinctly remember being at Shoreline listening to Jerry tear up this tune and wondering if he had sold his, and how his playing right then was an expression of how he fucked up and would get no mercy as Satan tortured him eternally, just to be able to shred the way he was that night... for us.

Yeah, the acid might have had some effect that night. Rolling Eyes

Wait, what's your beef with the 10/9/89 version of Death Don't. I really like that one.

Well, I don't like it that much... I just think switching verses was some kind of parlor trick or something, should've just let Jerry sing the whole thing. Musically it was fine, but the singing really bothered me.

I see. I wondered about that. Normally I'm against that kind of thing, but I like the way it worked out in that case.

My favorite is the one where the freaked out kid keeps yelling
"I don't wanna die"
4-6-69 Avalon I think?

Very haunting and very cool. Evil or Very Mad

There's one on Three From the Vault that's really good, of course Live Dead, there's one from 2-28-69 too.

Modern era. Back when it hit (I never caught it at a show) it was hard for me to get past Jerry farming out verses to Bobby and (gack!) Brent. Now I like it, and I actually like it just as much as the old version, sometimes even more if I am in a mood where I can't relate to the 60s stuff which happens quite often. Of course one never should have to hear Bobby and (gack!) Brent sing, but if one must, one should reconcile oneself to it and get on with it. The Shoreline version is the consensus pick but I haven't heard it as much and I do love the Warlocks rendition.

Personally, I can't get over the farming out of the verses... it's just tacky and unnecessary.

I do like the early versions a lot though. Pretty damn cool.

Well, I just listened to the one from 10-09 on the way to work today and that [CENSORED] is powerful. I think the verse thing needs to be got past or you're missing some really high grade GD music.

I only wish Healy would have turned Jerry up more in this era, his solos are overwhelmed by Brent.

I firmly disagree... and once again, I have to say, 10/9 is overrated. But, to each his own, right?

Fuck, no. You need to read Kant's Critique of Judgment.

10-09 sounds like a hot show to my little ears, way better than 10-08. But the setlist does stink for the 1st set.

I only repeat myself for emphasis. But I will add something new here: Hey Jude blows.
