    "Truckin'"

    "Casey Jones"
    "Friend of the Devil"

    I'd temporarily forgotten the Dead. One of my favorite all time bands. Jerry had a beautiful voice.

    Truckin', The Grateful Dead

    That part is very insightful. I feel like Garcia's looking into my soul when he sings that.

    Lately the light's been all shining on me 😵

    So basically you like their studio/radio songs? I thought you had more taste. 🙂

    2. Aiko Aiko
    3. Wharf rat
    4. Broken arrow
    5. Mississippi Halfstep

    to name but a few....

    I like their studio albums. If I put American Beauty or Terrapin Station in my CD player in my Jeep on Monday, it'll often be there the following Monday. Still, the studio performances don't capture the spirit that is present in live performances.

    Right now I'm playing 1970-10-23 - McDonough Arena - Georgetown University, Truckin' ->The Other One ->Not Fade Away ->Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad ->Not Fade Away: close to 25 minutes of continuous song

    This weekend I was listening to several performances from October 1980 in New York City.

    Some good ones that spring to mind are the "Dark Star" on "Live/Dead", "Dire Wolf", "Ripple" (this song makes me cry if I'm drunk and unprepared), "Eyes of the World" and a really excellent live version of "Mexicali Blues" with some sort of accordion. I'm not sure where the latter is from.

    EDIT I know it's a stretch to call him a "good singer", but does anyone else find Jerry's voice really captivating?

    EDIT I guess ATY agrees 🙂.

    Bob Weir sings Mexicali Blues, but Jerry does some terrific guitar work.
