And I forgive him for We Can Run, but not for I Will Take You Home.

Gah, for me it depends. Say what you want about Mexicali but I really appreciate songs where Jerry just gets to noodle around the entire time.

It’s so effortless for him that you barely notice, but I love it.

totally agree. when Jerry’s in good form, I like the cowboy songs just fine

I’d take I Will Take You Home over We Can Run, though... didn’t realize Barlow wrote either of those :vulcan:

whenever I go from listening to jam segments to full shows, it always hits me *how many damn cowboy songs there are*

greatest rock band in the world, most intense psychedelic musicians even, still play 4–8 country songs a week like a bad bar band

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?

FreedomHaul - Tue Feb 13, 2018 8:09 pm
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.’"
