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!

 
Once again, h8rhater to the rescue with witty comebacks to the downers.  And this is such a great tune....the track that turned me into a fan of Jerry and GD in general.  He was so cool.  LONG LIVE RP!! 

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

Nice tune. Better than nice. A Deadhead special. 
But somebody shoulda gone down to the local bodega bought this dude some more f'ing lyrics.

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

personally, i kinda like it, and the drums being up front in the mix.  Gives it an old time jazz kinda feel to it.

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.

It's not you - It's me. ...It could definitely come down - it's distracting. It does imply that they wanted the feel to be up tempo but it machines it's way though an otherwise nice organic song.

Probably because of all the hootin' and hollerin' which (for some) can be distracting. But that's just my opinion.

It's a strange psychological fact that people develop really strong emotional ties with people they've never met in their lives. So, someone famous dies, and people who never ever knew that person get really cut up about it, possibly more than if it were some distant relative that they really had met a couple of times. :think: I don't detract from your feelings. They were very real for you, I'm sure. But if you have any belief in God at all, you will surely meet him sometime in the future.

When Jerry died, I didn't cry. I was angry. One of my favorite musicians in the entire green and blue planet had been snatched away. And all because he didn't take care of himself. Months later, the dead was playing on the radio and I suddenly found myself crying. I arrived at work a mess. I find it troublesome when hateful people have to express their negativity in an open forum designed primarily for free thought about music and not deathwishers. May whatever God you believe in bless your troubled soul my son. :moon:

This song came out four years before Rod's...while I do hear a little similarity in the backround riff, you'll have to bust Rod's chops for that. :beat:

Bill, maybe you could respond to this. I have always wondered why radio stations don't play live cuts from the Dead. Obviously, you wouldn't want to play a 15 minute song, but I'm sure that you could find a version of Sugaree on a volume of Dick's Picks that you could play. The quality of DP should make recording quality not an issue. Just wondering. BTW, thanks for playing the album version at least!!!
