Bird Song / Brokedown Palace - - - let John sing !

#3249 3 years, 7 months ago
all respect to the entire band and their collective/single efforts on vocals... this band is WICKED !!!

but...

can we let John return to singing BIRD SONG - and - let him take the lead on BROKEDOWN PALACE ?

In my opinion, John has the best voice to carry these tunes. His voice has so much of the "pain"/"mystery" that could carry these tunes just a step higher. In the past year, Phil took over Bird Song (i think john's last Bird Song was in Asheville, 2/10). Phil does a great job, but John's vocals just fit the vibe a bit more, sonically. Bobby does a great job with Brokedown Palace (and has always sung the tune), but again, I think John's voice fits the tune a little better...

What do you think?

johns vocals sounded more like jerry when he was in DSO IMO now that he's in Furthur I think he's trying not to follow garcia as closely
there are a few songs that would sound better with JK singing

bobby has actually grown on me since over the last 15 years, especially the last 3... but his voice is just too clean for the song

I would love to hear John sing these songs, along with many others, too. No disrespect meant towards Bobby or Phil, I just like John's voice.

John should also sing Standing on the Moon and China Cat. I love Bobby and all but too much Bobby doesn't work for me.

I like Bobby on Brokedown. Birdsong in Asheville was great & Phil slipped on the words to it in Cincy... I agree that JK should've remained on Birdsong. I agree he should take Standing as well. To SOME degree. What it really boils down to though it Phil knew Janis, John didn't. Bobby knew Jerry (Standing) as a brother.

I like it how it is when you look at the "bigger picture" per se.

just me I guess
