Love to see Bobby bust out "Misty." He used to do that one on his Weir and Wasserman tours back in the day. Would also LOVE to see them bust out "Mission in the Rain"

"Just a Little Light"

It is on the album "Built to Last" that I just heard on GDradio.net. It is also live on "Dozin' at the Knick."

I can see JK singing it, or Bobby. I would like to see some of Brent's tunes ressurected with Furthur or with BW/JK on their solo tours.

He was so much more talented than I ever gave him credit for being at the time.

Words by John Perry Barlow and Brent Mydland; music by Brent Mydland


Well, there ain't nobody safer than someone who doesn't care
And it isn't even lonely when no one's ever there
I had a lot of dreams once, but some of them came true...
The honey's sometimes bitter when fortune falls on you

So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night
And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise alright
But here you're trembling like a sparrow, I will try with all my might
To give you just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little light.


I have always heard that virtue oughta be its own reward,
But it never comes so easy when you're living by the sword
It's even harder to be heartless when you look at me that way
You're as mighty as the flower that will grow the stones away


Even though I been a stranger, full of irony and spite
Holding little but contempt for all things beautiful and bright,
Something shines around you and it seems, to my delight
To give me just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little light.


[Bridge:]
This could be just another highway, coiled up in the night
You could be just another white-tail, baby, stranded on my brights,
There's a tingling recognition
Like the sound of distant thunder
And I begin to wonder
If the love I've driven under
Won't ignite.


So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night
And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise alright
Something shines around you that seems, to my delight
To give me just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little light.

A perfect sentiment for our times.

I wanna hear the entire catalog.
they should bust out songs they dropped in 65
so that there isn't a single song in their repertoire that isn't archived for everyone to DL.

I believe John used to sing "Just a Little Light" with DSO, they did it well.

As far as "Don't Let Go" goes, I'd love to hear that along with "That's What Love Will Make You Do" or "I Shall Be Released" ... I think John or Bobby would kill that one, especially with the backups as good as they are. Heck, the entire live Garcia release from 90 or 91 (the double set) would be great .

staggerlee13- they do play picasso moon, but VERY rarely... i saw them play it at hampton in 2010...i think they did it once before that at a rehearsal show, and once after which was the last time they played it, in portland on 3/8/10.-----i think they hold off on this because it is a DIFFICULT song to play, one of those tunes where everybody is really doing something completely different and if its not perfect it sucks

reb--same deal as mentioned above--it gets played but extremely rarely, only saw them do it once i want to say manchester NH 2/18/10, i believe it was played at all good as well---i've always loved brent's music, and actually enjoy when DSO plays it ever since rob barraco became a full time member--he does the vocals justice----JK sings it with furthur
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?
