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 -

Interestingly, the Steep Canyon Rangers are from right down the road from here in Brevard, North Carolina.

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.

Bonjah

Calvin Russell

Nimmo Bros.

No new ground being broken here, but nuthin wrong with some good old-fashioned roadhouse music!

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"?

Wow!

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 thinking that a coffee house cover version of this tune might work well for this tune in the Berkeley /Oakland California Coffee house Scene . I Like this guys bass playing in the visceral scene of perception ,

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.

Webcast of Dead 50 at Levi

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.

My iPod has Artist>YES Selected on Random. I really miss Chris.

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"
