Favorite Unusual Song Combinations

So I fly out to New York to see John and the boys last Saturday (for free!)at MSG and they opened with Shakedown Street->I Need A Miracle->Cold Rain and Snow. Way to go boys!

Set Two Video

This reminded me of some of my favorite things, the unusual Grateful Dead song segue. I first posted about this on Archive a year or two ago Four Unusual Song Segues

Dave's Pick 17 from Fresno 1974 has such an animal the He's Gone->US Blue that you will soon hear.

Here are some of my jam gems that I frequently drift back to (links to follow soon):

3-31-1973 The Other One>Jam>I Know You Rider

7-27-1974 US Blues->Jam->The Promise Land

6-12-76 Sugar Magnolia>US Blues>Sunshine Daydream

4-2-73 Here Comes Sunshine->Dark Star-ish Mind Melting  Jam->Me and Bobby McGee

8-2-76 Might As Well->Jam->Samson and Delilah

2-17-73 Here Comes Sunshine->China Cat->Rider

5-22-77 Wharf Rat->Terrapin Inspiration

1-17-79 Miracle->Shakedown

11-29-80 Shakedown Street -> Franklin's Tower

1985-09-15 Space-> U.S. Blues -> Satisfaction

1985-07-13 One More Saturday Night-> Fire On The Mountain
