Lazy River Road. Nice happy little tune. Reminds me of Elizabeth Cotton.

does reuben and cherise count? what other era does it belong to? if not, then standing on the moon.

if SOTM doesn't count, probably 'liberty.' i didn't like any of the 'new' new tunes that much, to tell the truth.

IMO Rueben and Cherise doesnt count becasue really its a Garcia Band tune that he had been playing since 82. SOTM...hmmm. Born in the Brent era but really blossomed in the Vince era. I would say, no, but others might have differing opinions.

sounds fair to me. so songs born after brent... probably 'liberty' then. i also like lazy river road. the others not so much. everybody busts on 'wave to the wind', but i actually kind of like it.

I think I'll start from a list >

If The Shoe Fits
Childhood's End
Way To Go Home
Samba In The Rain
Corrina
Matilda
Liberty
Lazy River Road
So Many Roads
Eternity
Wave To The Wind
Days Between

Are there any post-Brent originals missing?

I'm surprised to see only one Bobby tune in there. I must be missing a Bobby tune, or maybe not.

And Mathilda's a cover, not an original. Assuming your list was all GD originals...

I go with Lazy River Road. Pity Garcia never broke this out with Grisman.

Good call. Although the definitive verion, IMO, is on Wasserman's Trios (Weir, Wasserman, and Neil Young) it's definitely a GD song.

So, based on this list, I'll go for this.

1) Days Between-It's a better song than So Many Roads, although SMR was performed a lot more.
2) Lazy River Road-Hunter nailed this one, and Jerry fits the lyrics into the style he was playing with Grisman and the GD very nicely.
4) Corrina-Bobby may not have been prolific at this stage, but he was as determined as always. When this song finally settled into everyone's comfort zone, it was a very good thing.

I really dig almost all of Jerry's songs from any era, but from 1980 on Althea and Foolish Heart really stand out, I loved SOTM at the time but it's faded a bit, and all four of the newest songs are fantastic although Days Between is probably the best. It seems like he was headed for a songwriting renaissance, or maybe just a last burst, because there was a lot packed into those four whereas he was pretty laconic for the '80s for the most part.

Songs that usually bore me but probably shouldn't:
SOTM
Wharf Rat
Lately, Tennessee Jed

Songs that I dig but lots of people don't:
Push Comes to Shove
Black Muddy River
Liberty

Genuinely sub-par Garcia songs:
Day Job
If I Had the World to Give (which is nevertheless cool once in a while)
Cryptical Envelopment
?????

The guy(s) wrote a lot of songs and few are less than stellar. Pretty astounding when you think about it.

As for the newest songs by the Others...I will not even mention them. Gack.

Whew! I will politely disagree with the last two. World To Give is a wonderful song. Just check out 11/20/78 (the last one). It's picture perfect. It's also hard to judge a song that was only performed live five times.

And I'll be kind about your opinion of Cryptical Envelopment. I doubt you'll get a lot of support for your position on that one. I'd agree once Jerry got tired of it, it became irrelevant, but when it was truly a part of The Other One suite, it had some amazing power on the back end.

If you want to pick on a Jerry tune, why not have a go at Cream Puff War? The lyrics, courtesy of Mr. Garcia, are pretty hokey. There are some decent versions, but they are rare.

Yeah, Cream Puff War sucks so bad I actually forgot about it. Add it to the list.

I love it!
Let me put in my 2 cents on your 2 cents...
Songs that bore you but "shouldn't"... I agree about TN JED and to some degree, Wharf Rat. I think I just overheard the Rat...

Songs you dig but people don't... this is what it's all about! Right!?
I agree that Liberty Rocks, and I like the other two as well.

Sub-par Garcia...
Day Job?! Wait a moment buddy... are you telling me the guitar isn't rocking in that song? Lyrics aside...
IIHTWTG... luckily they only played it 3 times, hehe
Cryptical... I like SOME of the old ones, when they jammed it the hell out... but other than that, it is lame.

Well, that's why I called it 'sub-par' not 'atrocious'...at least from 1970 on, I don't think Hunter and Garcia are even capable of atrocious. I'm not saying Day Job isn't fun sometimes, just not a great songwriting effort. I mean, lyrically it's amusing and it does rock but overall H&G phoned that one in. [/i]

TN Jed
The Rat
The Wheel
Weather Report Suite
Any pig song except Viola Lee Blues

Songs I like that others don't...
Victim
Samba in the Rain (YEAH!!!)
Picasso Moon
Eternity
Liberty
Day Job
All Too Much

Ditto on The Wheel and any Pig song but Viola Lee Blues. The Wheel is a good song but it's atrocious live 90% of the time. I'm not sure why you 'should' like Weather Report Suite.

Songs I like that others don't...
Victim (Yeah, sometimes me too)
Samba in the Rain (YEAH!!!) (nope)
Picasso Moon (yeah, sometimes)
Eternity (no fucking way)
Liberty (yeah)
Day Job (sometimes)
All Too Much (I've never even heard of it)

All Too Much is a Vince song, I think it was played in 94 for the first time...

It's All Too Much is a Beatles song. I know it's on the Yellow Submarine soundtrack, don't know if it was on another "real" album. Cool hazy Lennon-on-acid song, like a sunnier happier Tomorrow Never Knows.

True... I remember learning that, but I always think of it as a Vince song, because I have only ever heard, that I remember, his version. My bad.

And on second thought I'm not sure why one would call "Viola Lee Blues" a "Pig song"...
