Having grown up in the house of a banjo player, I can tell you firsthand - banjo players are a breed all to their own. =)

I absolutely *love* Steve Martin's frailed-style of playing, but not as much the three-finger Scruggs-style. I could never figure out why one style was so immaculately in time and the other seemed... forced. But then I (somehow) never knew McEuen had been his mentor, which makes it totally make sense!

My favorite cut from "Rare Bird Alert" with the Steep Canyon Rangers backing -

I just listened to the Bonnie Dobson version of "Morning Dew." I have to admit that I had never heard of her before. MD is my favorite Dead song and I always thought they had written it. Got me thinking how many other songs of theirs that I like actually are covers. Does anyone know if there is a simple list anywhere that shows the songs the Dead have played and who the original artist was?

This probably isn't exactly what you were looking for, but it does give some of the composers and it's in list form.

Thanks Dave. Like you suggested, though, still a lot of holes. The information I'm looking for is probably unnecessary for most people who listen to the Dead.

Here's another list; still not comprehensive, but a decent start, I think.
This one has most of the same songs, but with more details.
Both leave off "And We Bid You Goodnight" (Sara Doudney/Ira David Sankey), among others.

Calvin Russell

Just heard about this kid (yes, kid, all of 11 years old) and I had to buy his album. Great player, great players on the record, great sounding record. One of my new favorites. His Giant Steps is especially good. If you just heard the music, you'd have no idea he can barely see over the piano. Some of it reminds me of Ahmad Jamal.

Joey Alexander - Giant Steps This is amazing! Even his comping is great, beautifully in sync with the other musicians. The arrangement is wonderful, as is his playing; effortlessly moving through the changes of Giant Steps as if they weren't there.

Thanks Edwin; I thoroughly enjoyed this!

OK, I enjoyed the Steve & Edie cut (man, there's a phrase I never thought I'd type......), but the words weren't right; isn't it "When you get to Asheville, look Dave up and Jam"?

One of the comments about Joey sums it up nicely:
". . . an organic understanding of rhythm and musicality . . ."

It makes me feel good when young people truly understand what music is about.

Out-takes from Fleetwood-Mac's "Rumours".

I especially like "Keep Me There", one of three unfinished songs that became what we know as "The Chain". Love how John's line is based more off what Christine played on keys, than Mick's kickdrum, especially the intro and his signature melodic fills.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtP1AzUQDwM

I'm pretty sure even though this is an alternate take, it's the fretless (ahem - *continuously fretted*) Alembic... you can hear it pretty well in this mix. The part of this track from 2:44 out is supposedly what made it onto the album.

Weedeater 'Goliathan'; some of the most spitty, fuzzed-out bass ever with vocals to match-Dixie's vocal chords must be SO thrashed...and "Sol Invictus', the new Faith No More album; so happy they're producing new music, such a good band...

It was mentioned in another thread about recording with Alembic, the band Sea Level.
I dusted off the old album and I am introducing their music to my 27 yo son.
No complaints so far.
As for me - I'm loving it!

OK, OK, I'm not listening to it now (unfortunately!), but I heard a phenomenal version of "That's It for the Other One" on Today In Grateful Dead history (Sirius XM) yesterday morning. It was from a rare show in June 1970 in Oahu, Hawaii. I'm usually not much into drum solos, but I thought the solo in that version was excellent and unique. At one point, you could hear Kreutzmann adding some vocalization of beats! Of course, I wanted to hear the moment when Phil blasts in with his bass intro, but the drum solo kept going. Alas, I had to go into work before it got to that point in the song! I figured I would find it on archive.org later, but it's not on there!

Has anyone heard this before? Great stuff!

It looks like there were three shows in Oahu in June, 1970; the 10th, 12th, and 13th. That's It for the Other One is not listed on the 13th. I didn't see a set list for the other two. The 10th, apparently at Diamond Head Crater, isn't even listed in some show lists, so this might not be it. But here's what I found on the 12th:

6/12/70 Oahu - Not in circulation. Lemieux has played The Other One on the Taper's Section a couple times.

So I'm guessing that's what you heard.

Yes, that's the one! Listening to 3-1-70 right now. Lemieux said he would play some of the show from the 13th soon.

THIS!

These are some of the finest musicians around that play the true Appalachian string band music. This sound is very much what my group New River Bound is influenced/inspired by... though the guitar is doing the heavy lifting here, try and imagine what a bassline underneath that groove would sound like, and that's what we're shooting for.

I am following and listening to the entire Soundcloud selections of Michael Manring ; He is always so amazing to hear live and on recordings! I went to one of his clinics in the early 1990's at Gelb Music and I have been a fan ever since.

As I write this I'm listening to "The Pizza Tapes" with Jerry Garcia, David Grisman, and Tony Rice at a speed of 591 mph at an altitude of 36,695 feet on my Pono with noise canceling Audio-Technica headphones. Technology can be cool!

Last night I watched the first set of the second night of Phil's 1977 tribute, with special guest John Mayer.

The lineups for these shows is always changing; there is no set band that has played the songs together for a while. And some of the Dead material is difficult.

So I'm watching last night and they do Sunrise! Very rare performance. Even Phil and Stu were glued to their music stands reading the chart. At one point Phil is looking around at the other players as if wondering what happens next.

For those unfamiliar with the tune, here is the original.

Singing it this time was Jeannette Ferber, and she did very well. The whole set is here.

The Wailin' Jennys - Live at Mauch Chunk Opera House...

My two favorite cuts:

an old sea shanty called "Bold Riley" https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=20&v=D62vASKOOhQ

and maybe my all-time favorite Gillian Welch (speaking of Welches) cover, "One More Dollar". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmGDSfUNBGs

*edit - special mention for the fiddle solo 2:40 - 3:40.

Had planned on going, but a project I expected to end 9 months ago, finally looks to be wrapping up this weekend/coming week. Working with folks from USA, Canada and Mexico, none of whom are sympathetic to my musical or temporal desires. Arghh! Anyway watching on my computer 3K miles away, is pretty good alternative. And the guys are really knockin' it out of the park!

Great choice Peter. I remember spending weeks working out the bassline to Halo of Flies I the days when all I had was a cheap record player - I became quite skilled at lifting the needle and dropping it just where I wanted.

Jazzy, you should really check Yes out. Their first drummer, Bill Bruford didn't actually know what Rock and Roll was, he was a jazz schooled drummer, and he and Chris wove some really intricate rhythms as a result. Find the song "Heart of the Sunrise"

Monte Montgomery, playing an amazing rendition of Mark Knopfler's classic "Romeo & Juliet". (one of my FAVORITES!) This video is a few years old now (from NAMM 2007) but it's no less amazing than the first time I saw it. Guitar solo begins at 4:40, and goes through the second video.

You can't teach *that*. (but if you could, I'd go take lessons!)

Patti Smith covering George Harrison's Within You Without You. It's a departure from the original in that the underlying rhythm is quite different; but Patti gives a very nice reading.

Thanks for sharing that Patti Smith; I've of course known of her forever but never heard( I think I even have a cd I've never listened to...I have thousands so so things get buried before I can hear them...) I think I have to dig that cd out and such...it sorta sucks having musical tastes going from King Sunny Ade to Pig Destroyer because there's always a ton of stuff you're gonna miss no matter how much music you buy and check out...oh well, just gotta think of us all as music barnacles, trying to catch as much with our flagellum as we can...Tony

Regardless of what you might think of Patti Smith's music, it's well worth reading her book, Just Kids, her account of her life with Robert Mapplethorpe in the late 60s and early 70s in NYC. She's a great writer and her tales are very compelling. It's an amazing window into a time and place that was really the transition between post-WWII NY and the modern city.


I did get to see her open for the Grateful Dead once. That was a lot of fun.

I saw her at CBGB's in New York MANY years ago, when she first hit big. I don't remember too much about the music. Rather, I remember her humping the mic stand and her bass player wrapping aluminum foil around his head and trying (unsuccessfully) to climb up a column supporting the roof. I was not impressed.

Bill, tgo

Tony; good point about the huge amount of good music there is that we miss because there's just so much of it.

I have that Patti Smith book; haven't read it yet...I buy books faster than I can read them too...the Pokey LaFarge was cool.

Just got back from seeing Fu Manchu; fun with fuzz!

Our buddy FC should *totally* be sitting in on ^that one^ Dave! =)

There's a couple good rock cover bluegrass acts out there... my current favorite right now is Love Canon. (child of the 80's that I am!)

Here they are covering Grateful Dead's "Touch of Grey":

Yeah, Roy can play! And I used to watch the show for the musicianship.

Nice cover of Touch of Grey.

This band is getting much acclaim in the UK and now worldwide as part of a" Psychedelic Revival Sound".

I love Rosalie's voice !

Enjoyed Purson Wolf. I'm drawn to that relaxingly under-produced sound.

Conversely, I'm listening to the (mildy over-produced) soundtrack to the movie "Twister" from 1996. (NO WAY that was twenty years ago!)

Specifically, Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks' theme music "Twisted". Stevie claims at least to have written the lyrics long before, that they just happened to loosely coincide with the movie plot. This must have been recorded right before the concert and subsequent reunion tour for "The Dance".

Anyway, I sat up half the night with a very good friend watching it on DVD this weekend, so it must've stuck in my head. The words have taken on a different meaning for me, in the wake of another good friend's recent passing.

Gregory ,
I am glad that you liked the "Purson" link. The Bass player Justin Smith is also an interesting player in that it seems that he has been influenced by some of the same Bass players that I was decades ago myself. He also has a GUILD STARFIRE in his stable of instruments and seems to be endorsed by "GUILD " by the look of this link.

http://guildguitars.com/artist-to-watch-justin-smith-of-purson/?sa=X&ved=0CCAQ9QEwA2oVChMIjM7Luu_7xgIVzJqACh3zLw-p

I am very hopeful that soon he will be playing an ALEMBIC Bass on stage ! Perhaps it is just a matter of time. If someone handed him a swell Alembic bass to checkout and play sometime I can't see why that could not happen.

I checked out the words to " Twisted" in your link , I can relate as well , I have been there a few times as well .
Emotional recovery from such loss is not easy. Hang in there brother we are there with you .

I highly recommend this, along those lines. I love Verdine scaring the woman in the front row while her friend is clearly loving it.

This is before the Philip Bailey pop version (not that that version is terrible, far from it).
