Grateful Dead Europe '72 Vol 2

Get the Grateful Dead Europe '72 Vol 2 at Amazon 2011 two CD live archive release, the long-awaited 'sequel' to their best-selling Europe '72 album. Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux, who produced this 20-track compilation, says he only chose song titles that did not appear on Europe '72 as a way to complement the original. In a nod to the original, Vol. 2 features new cover art by Stanley Mouse, the artist who helped create the iconic artwork from Europe '72, which features the return of the legendary Ice Cream Kid. Recorded at various locations during the band's 22-show tour, the collection captures the Dead in white-hot moments of improvisational revelry as the band explores a number of its most enduring songs, like "Bertha," "Sugaree" and "Playing In the Band," plus relatively obscure cuts like "Black-Throated Wind" and Pigpen's "Chinatown Shuffle." Disc one "Bertha" (Jerry Garcia, Robert Hunter) – 5:53 "Me and My Uncle" (John Phillips) – 3:13 "Chinatown Shuffle" (Ron "Pigpen" McKernan) – 2:38 "Sugaree" (Garcia, Hunter) – 6:56 "Beat It On Down The Line" (Jesse Fuller) – 3:11 "Loser" (Garcia, Hunter) – 6:29 "Next Time You See Me" (Bill Harvey, Earl Forest) – 4:57 "Black-Throated Wind" (Bob Weir, John Barlow) – 6:00 "Dire Wolf" (Garcia, Hunter) – 4:46 "Greatest Story Ever Told" (Weir, Mickey Hart, Barlow) – 4:52 "Deal" (Garcia, Hunter) – 5:05 "Good Lovin'" (Rudy Clark, Arthur Resnick) – 12:09 "Playing in the Band" (Weir, Hart, Hunter) – 11:55 Disc two "Dark Star" (Garcia, Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, McKernan, Weir, Hunter) > – 19:49 "Drums" (Kreutzmann) > – 2:24 "The Other One" (Weir, Kreutzmann) > – 30:27 "Sing Me Back Home" (Merle Haggard) – 10:58 "Not Fade Away" (Norman Petty, Charles Hardin) > – 4:24 "Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad" (traditional, arranged by Grateful Dead) > – 6:08 "Not Fade Away" (Petty, Hardin) – 2:45
