Liberty

I really like this song. Its really good as an encore, one of my favorites. Along with Broke down Palace and Ripple.

Anyone agree or disagree?

I prefer the version Hunter used to play (and may still, I haven't seen him live in a bunch of years), but it's not terrible the way it morphed.

Liberty is one of my husband's favorite songs.

Here is an unfinished liberty patch by my stepson. I should dig it up and finish it. Thanks for the inspiration!

I've always loved this tune, even back in the day when it was new and people started complaining that it was being over-played. I think it works great in the encore slot, as it is punchy and rockin enough and sets you in a good, motivated, happy mood as you leave the show.

I really like how Bobby and Furthur play it, but I really liked how old Jer would absolutely belt out that last line, 'I'm gonna find myyyy own waaaaaay home' to the point where his voice almost cracked, and then play that clear, distinct walk-down exit riff all loud and with passion. Man he had nothing but soul!!!! Miss the old dude!

Furthur's got it, though. They're damn good!

the R. Crumb type imagery in the lyrics works really well.
It's a good song , it bounces along nice.
too bad the Dead never got to develop it into something more.

People who think Liberty was over played are forgetting the merciless flogging given to songs like Way to go Home

Saw it in Columbus at the Lifestyles Pavillion as our Pre Fourth of July Encore...I was expecting U.S. Blues but I was not disappointed.
