THANK YOU! Validation! And they all thought I was insane.......
Mike McCready always acknowledged and gave credit to Jimi for his influence and licks.

This is the song that got me into BOC... I'm not sure if I like the original version or Metallica's cover more, though.
Yes, I think it's time to go listen to some Metallica. Some S&M would clean this outta the head nicely.

|Listening to this song in September always triggers a twinge of sorrow because baseball season is almost over.

Sometimes the intelligence gets in the way of what rock is all about.

|Click. Time to load up some Metallica and cleanse the pop out of the ears.

|Fortunately the amount of airplay a song gets does not necessarily condem it from RP. If that were so we wouldn't be hearing any Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Stones, Tori Amos, Cheryl Crow, U2, Tracy Chapman, etc, etc, etc.|

|There is a very nice cover of this on the first CD from Wake the Dead. They do "A Celtic celebration Of the songs of The Grateful Dead - Celtic music mixed with Grateful Dead tunes." Their CD is available on the Grateful Dead website.

|I have this song in the same catagory as Afternoon Delight by the Starland vocal Band.
Joe, you screwed the commercial pooch with this one.

But Jimi still comes through.
I kind of agree on the panning issue, although LED Zeppelin's second album had lots of 'stereo' tricks also. Symtematic of the times. Recording quality and engineering (quality) really began to change and improve about '70-'71. More and more artists began to insist on creative input/control of the recording process.

Those of us that were there don't really know if they sounded good or not. At that time everybody sounded good, unless you got hold of some really bad stuff.

|Add to this "Down to seeds & stems again blues" (Marshall Tucker Band) and "Henry" (NRPS) and you've got a great truck drivin set.

|I like their arrangement on the new live album a little better. They seem to have gotten more comfortable with their performance of the song.|

Gram Parsons is floating around in that information bank somewhere...I think the Stones covered it off ...who? please somone set me straight.
Actually the Stones wrote it and others have covered it. The Stones did several country blues numbers, their most successful was probably Honky Tonk Women.

In fact, this is the ONLY place we would hear this song other than GD tapes and shows. WTG Rebecca and Bill! THANKS!
Actually there is a local station that used to go by the call letters KSAN that plays GD/Garcia.

You do realize this is the original and not a cover don't you. :???:
I won't say I like his background singers, be he obviously did.

|Does this really sound like rock & roll???? Maybe a rock hitting a couple of cats out for an evening on the town.

|Frankly this station could use a little more hard core rock and roll. I've grown up (admittedly there are some that will question that statement) on R & R, and intelligent was never a word that was associated with rock. Unfortunately the rock community has become so full of itself that variety of genre can no longer be played by a single station, this one included judging by the statements that appear periodically regarding the suitablility of this song or that song belonging on the playlist.
Kudos for the time, effert and love put into this site Bill & Rebecca.
