Hello All.

I was listening to Workingman's Dead today and NSB came on. This song did get some play, but it never really got past the, "it's new, so let's play it" stage. Yes, it was revived in the later years, but I'm looking for a little opinion on what people think is the best version.

For me, I like the 5/14/70 version. It's got two nice jams and slides pretty seamlessly into St. Stephen.

Are you specifically trying to keep this tuned in to the pigpen versions?
Or are you addressing it at any time?

I ask because this will determine if it should remain here, or be moved into the songs area...

Yeah, I was thinking the Pigpen thread didn't get enough love so I wanted to ask in that era. I guess I'm looking for versions where the feel is a little closer to the time of the songs origin. Thanks for asking!

I'm not a huge fan of video in general like I am with audio, but I like this video a lot, it's a pretty solid workout of this tune.

That's a great show. Right in the middle of my first GD tour. Too bad I missed it. Sad

I did see 6/6, 6/7, 6/9, 6/19, 6/20 and 6/22.

I like this song a lot and recently compared 5/14/70 to the 91 versions. I prefer to earlier one largely because of the sound of Jerry' guitar, but also because his singing is much more spirited on the earlier version IMHO. My favorite 91 version is 5/10 version because of the excellent segue from Truckin.
