or rather, a mix of original tunes that Jerry played at various times. I have more of these, but they're all half-finished. If there's any interest, I'll put together some more (like all Legion of Mary originals or all gospel covers or whatever). This one, though, was just thrown together because it sounded good as is (imho, of course). If you haven't heard some of these before, you may be in for a surprise.

* not Marvin Gaye's version, trust me. This same Jr. Walker album also has the version of I'm a Roadrunner that Jerry covered, too.
** a toss up between this and Clapton's. Delaney wrote it, and this D&B album has both LALWFH and GDTRFB (in a strikingly similar arrangement to the Dead's...); the first Clapton solo album has both LALWFH and After Midnight, though. I went with Delaney because I like it more.
*** a Gerswhin standard played by lots of people, but Garcia was apparently a big fan of this guy and this is apparently the version he "covered."
These aren't jgb performances -- they're the original songs that jerry's covering. I assume that everyone here probably knows what Dylan's original recording of Tangled Up in Blue sounds like, but I'm guessing that not everyone has heard the original Don't Let Go or I'll Take a Melody or a bunch more. Think of this as a JGB version of that "Roots of the GD" cd with all the original jug band & blues tunes they covered early on.
But kochman, if by "date" you mean the date the song originally came out, I could look that up. Most of this is from the mid/late 60's, some from the 50's, and the latest I think is the Steve Wonder tune from, um, 1974 maybe?
