So I was curious if this has ever happened to you guys and if so what song was it and where was it from (date/venue, or source). I have never been a huge fan of sugaree. I mean don't get me wrong, I always liked the song, but the key word there being liked. I never went out of my way to hear the song, and while I never skipped it if I was listening to a show (I have this weird thing where if I start a show I have to listen to it in it's entirety) I never loved the song.
Ever since I downloaded volume 4 of the download series I can't get enough of sugaree. For sone reason after hearing that version I now love the song and am going back to other shows and giving it a serious listening to.
So I guess my question is have you ever "liked" a song and then heard it somewhere and then loved the song?
The same thing kind of happened to me with Jack Straw. I always had a strong like for the song, but I never loved it. I always found it to be almost to mellow. After I heard Philly 3/31/87 I have LOVED it and I never looked back.
I haven't posted in a while so I figured today was a good day to make my first posting of the new year.
-----as a side note, for all of you who commented on my mother's injury my family and I thank you. She is slowly recovering and every day she gets a little better. She still can't put weight on her leg and has to use crutches but it looks like she will make a full recovery. Whether or not she will be able to ride her horse in competitions again is yet to be seen.

In the mid 70s I grew to hate Sugaree. It seemed everytime I saw the Dead or JGB it was played and I really got tired of it. Have since started enjoying it again. One tune that really grew on me though is Foolish Heart. It started with the version from 7/12/90 which also contains probably my favorite latter day Dark Stars.

This has happened to me on several songs, but the only instance I can really pinpoint is Standing On The Moon. I always liked the tune, but the full beauty of the song did not blow me away until I heard it at Alpine Valley, 7-17-89.

Now, I am not saying this is the best version, or even a good version. Just simply stating this was the moment this song first slapped me across the face and demanded my respect, and dare I say, love.

Yes, great version.
8/21/93 is also up there for me...

I think that Montego Bay 11-26-82 made a Sugaree man outta me.

Sugaree '71-'76 fun, but no expectations

1977 onward - oh man this might be something awesome!!

And to answer the question, yes this has happened to me with most GD/JGB material

I'm still waiting for pre-Kieth and '85-'88 shows to consistently move me....

That's a good point Gopher... a lot of GD songs eventually HIT me, whereas upon several previous listenings, for whatever reason (arrangement during particular era, etc), nothing was really sticking out.

Deal is a perfect example... sorry, but the older Deals... blah...

1977 was definitely the breakout year for Sugaree, and in particular the severely underrated version from 2-26-77 Swing Auditorium.
