The quality of Barlow’s writing dropped off in the 80s.

I never knew we had him to blame for "I Wanna Live in America"

there’s a whole slew of those songs from that time (Neil Diamond, Springsteen of a sort, etc.) that channel/exploit the contemporary mood, but man...

I would still have expected Weir/Barlow to have taken the high road...

catchy as fudge? you bet. does the beginning rip off the Diamond song? you bet. a paean to a middle-class white version of "America" horrifically out of touch with the lived reality of the majority of actual people during the Reagan era?

you bet. The song also loses points for the cheesy 80s rock sax solo

is anyone else wondering if FreedomHaul successfully snuck in full listen of 2/14/68 today without aggravating his wife? I am.

ugh, we both worked late today so all our plans were a wash. I did give it a listen this past weekend, though, so all’s good :cloud9:

It turns out that California’s latest commercial product goes extremely well with Miles Davis. :cloud9: :smokin:

spurious Wikipedia claims (from Stephen Foster’s page): "The song ’Saint Stephen’ by the Grateful Dead was a tribute to Stephen Foster, whom they regarded as their ’patron saint.’"

man, Jerry falls into so many melodic wormholes in that 2-5-78 S>F. And that tone!

It really is an incredible performance FH. Just spellbinding. Keith is also A+ in that Scar>Fire, esp. the Scarlet jam.

There aren’t many GD performances that I can say are my single favorite version of a tune, but that’s my single fav S>F

that arpeggio riff Jerry plays before the first verse slays me. I’ve never heard him play that idea before or after, which is kind of a shame because it’s a great part.

I might give that nod to Copps, but it’s a very close call and probably depends on more on the weather than anything objective
