PS - as I understand, Sugaree is a song about a prostitute...which is why he can't admit to knowing her. 



 
I rather like reading the critiques. It helps me to understand other points of view. The Grateful Dead tend to be polarizing, but so what? Let people say their piece and move on. I don't see much need for personal attacks, whether witty or not. Leave that to the POTUS.

My late beloved sister Annie sent me this album in the post in 1973, thanks RP for the memory.

How in the heck do you get to the Jubilee? 

And if it don't come, then do you catch it on the run?  

 
I think we ALL need the "Jubilee" (as I understand it) right now.  In ancient Hebrew history (i.e. old testament) back when interest was not charged (just like Islam too doesn't "allow" it) every 7 years there were adjustments made to balances owed, and then after 7 cycles of these 7 years (i.e. every 50th year) was the Jubilee, the wiping away of all debts/grand forgivness.  I'm a bit fuzzy on my details although I think that's the overall gist.

Thanks for keeping the Good Old Grateful Dead AND Jerry G in rotation, Bill!

Nice GD track. But I think Jerry must have run short on the lyrics.

is it me, or is the high hat mixed way too high on this track? sounds like tictictictictic to me...otherwise, love Jerry & this tune.
 
personally, i kinda like it, and the drums being up front in the mix.  Gives it an old time jazz kinda feel to it.

Such a shame RP can't play any live versions, they're so much better.

Um i'm not sure if its the high hat or the ride the drummers tic-ing away. it is very annoing though. From a technical point of view I don't know how he keeps it going.
 
It's not too "technical" to do - you keep your hi-hat or ride stick going to keep the fast-time beat, and you work under that on the snare, bass drum, toms, cymbals with the other 3 limbs at some division of that fast-time. Common as beans in the drumming world if you're half competent. It also gives for example the bass player something to hang onto to keep his/her line going like it should.

Don't know what to tell you if it's annoying. It isn't to me as a drummer, I love it, and it's all part of the groove of the song. You might not have heard it in many other songs because it's been buried in the recording mix or your audio system doesn't bring it out well. Bill has been working on adding various re-masters and such to the catalog, so hearing details better like this is possible.
