As I said in Sue's praise of Unbroken Chain the other night, the first one to come to mind is Unbroken Chain. Consistently good to very good, but never phenomenal. I'm a big, big fan of that song, so a consistent "B+" grade is fine with me. I'd have to disagree with Terrapin, and I single it out on the contrary because I wish it was consistently solid. It can come off as pretty bland a lot of the time (mostly because Russo doesn't always take control of it like the song demands the drummer to do). One of the songs they can smoke, but they don't often come through in the top shelf level. That's the problem with prog rock, though. There isn't a lot of middle ground with something like Terrapin or Unbroken Chain, both of which I consider on the prog side, Terrapin being more so because it is more limiting by design.

How about Mason's Children, Golden Road, Passenger, and the quick-tempo rockers? This thread makes me realize, for my money, this band is treading near that "always solid, but rarely stellar" area. We're getting fewer stand-out sets and shows now. Cruising and never flooring; bordering on complacency. Kind of reminds me of how the GD felt that final ten years.

I would have to agree with you every step of the way. Truth be told, the Phil and friends with Jackie proved more energetic and inspiring than Furthur offerings of late, at least for my taste.

my favorite furthur songs:
1. Jack Straw
2. Cumberland Blues (the harmonies from the backup singers and Jeff's incredible playing actually make me choose furthur over the grateful dead when i'm in the mood to listen to a cumberland. i especially like the one from bethel 2011).
3. Cassidy!!!
4. Let it Grow
5. Unbroken Chain
6. Mountains of the Moon
7. One More Saturday Night (every time i see a furthur show on a saturday night and they encore with it, my first thought is something like... "holy shit, why do i have to hear this as the encore at every saturday show?"... my second thought is... "holy shit... thats why ")

I would have put "Row Jimmy", but it seems to have falling out of their repertoire. What did they play it last year, twice?

That Althea at Red Rocks was smoking for sure. I don't know if the Dead ever did one as long as that one.
