Slewfoot stole my answer but I'm on a big "She Belongs to Me" kick right now. I go through phases the last one was New Potato Caboose.

This happens I'm sure to all of us. We go through different times in our lives and certain songs just fit that moment. Another reason why were so lucky to love these songs. They bring us to through the best of times and the worst. After midnight has turned into my favorite for the last two months. I know it will change like the seasons but I'm forever grateful that there so much to listen too. Were lucky!
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

For a listing of great versions of tunes, always consult the Grateful Dead Project.

Unfortunately Comes A Times is not among the songs listed. But I think you'll all find this to be a cool resource if you did not know of it already.

Well I'm guessing you've heard this one from Kean College, which has been released commercially. If not, enjoy.....

I have a dicks picks Richmond 85 with He's Gone > Spoonful > Comes a Time. I can't get enough of that little section. One night I spent the whole night trying to come down listening to that on repeat I just thought it was the greatest thing! lol


It is one of the greatest 2nd sets of the 80's. Make sure to listen to the audience recording in my above post... I doubt you will ever go back to the dry DP recording. What a rare treat to be transported back like it was yesterday... as close to a time machine as you will ever get! Everyone needs to put on good headphones, lay back and enjoy the glory of this recording! Thank you Doug Oade!!!


I was at Richmond and Hershey. I believe I told my Hershey story here this summer so I'll give ya my Richmond one. After making our way up from the Halloween Sc show we were soaring along nicely. It was GA floor..My tour buddy and I made our way up to our usual spot about 15-20 ft in front of Jerry a lil to the center. We are in our usual 85 form ( Giant bus & livin on reds vitamin c.... ). Show starts Dancin and we're off.... cold rain, rooster...and THEN this idiotic girl breaks a glow stick right in front of me and it shoots directly into my eyes and all over me. Thank god I had my glasses on (I've had lasik since I don't miss em for a minute) so they somewhat blocked the flow but imagine gettin shampoo in both eyes and are unable to wash it out. It was BURNING. So I say fuck it gotta wash this shit out.. my budy joins me we RUN backwards and up the side of the coliseaum to the mens room where I wash my eyes out and slowly get my shit back together. I can Hear Me & My Uncle playin. I am PISSED. I tell my buddy we are goin right back to our spot and I am gonna rip that chick a new one .... I was takin no prisoners... we headed back down and I made my way through the crowd ..NOONE was gonna stop me. We got back to our "spot" about 2/3 of the way through big river... believe me no easy feat.. I berated the chick to the point she moved ( I am not proud of it I would have handled it differently now but in that state of mind no idiot was going to ruin my show!)....anyway I still take partial credit (haha)for the greatness of that show. 2/3 of my face and shirt were GLOWING for the rest of the night... and I was right in there sightlines ending up about 10 ft away (3rd row or so if their were seats) by the time the second set started. This is easily in my top 3 shows ever attended..the energy was through the roof. Gloria is one of my all time faves and I swear the crowd was levitating during it. Besides the CAT Sailor>Drums>Space>Saint YOWZA!!!!!!!! I was singing Spoonful for the next month. it was a High Time indeed!

5/9/77 is certainly one of the, if not [i]THE[i] most beautiful version...although much of the a lot of the rest of that show is incredibly standard. Overall its among the bottom 15 shows of 77. Still a good show, but one of the most overrated there is. But I digress, that's a discussion deserving of its own thread.

The #1 Comes a Time is hands down 7/17/76. I prefer the AUD of this show to the SBDs and MTX. They are all too flat for my liking.

This is the one friends. It has all the beauty necessary for a great version, plus a solid 9 minutes of epic jamming tacked on. 1 of a kind.

Buffalo 1977 is the real deal. 85 Hershey shines as well. I was always partial to Chula Vista 85 (She Belongs To Me>Truckin>Comes A Time) even if the vocals are a bit rough around the edges. Jerry more than makes up for it.....

Two very different versions of this song stand out for me. 1.) 12/5/71 Felt Forum, NYC 2.) Phil & Friends 11/26/01 Beacon Theater, NYC. This was the first NYC show after 9/11. The first set opened with a jam > Comes a Time. I remember at the time thinking what an inspired choice this was to open a show, considering what happened two months earlier.
