Say what you will about this 1982 interview on Letterman and the relative states of being between the 3 participants yet stay long enough for the treat of watching Jerry and Bob perform an acoustic version of Deep Elam Blues.  I include, for comparison, another acoustic version with the entire Dead from 1981, a year earlier.


Be ye a Dead fan, Deadhead, or just a musical fan of their musicianship-enjoy the ride back in time.



Grateful Dead – Scarlet Begonias (Winterland 10/19/74) (Official Live Video)

“When we were working on selecting the Bonus Material for the Grateful Dead Movie DVD, we looked at Jerry’s long list of songs that he considered including in the original movie, and this Scarlet Begonias was one of them. It features some wonderful vocal improvisation by Donna Jean during the instrumental section at the end of the song.” – David Lemieux
