Sugaree?

Which version you guys like better, JGB or GD. I'm still sort of on the fence. I wonder why he choose that song to bring over to JGB and not another like stella blue.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

Grateful Dead but I also loved hearing Warren sing it with The Dead.

The Grateful Dead. Also, they love eachother, another song that jumped fences, was way better and kick ass by the dead. jgb was the bomb when it came to Mowtown and blues (Chicago blues)

As long as it gets me moving I don't mind who's playing it

But I will say I totally dig a Jerry Band Deal over a GD.

The JGB version on live at kean college is a version that has always been one of my favorites though overall i would probably choose a GD version. Really a day by day, individual version by individual version thing though. Any version by either band has the potential to completely blow your mind.

Loved GD version especially in late 80s. See 8.12.87.

I think this was more a JG tune from the outset. It appeared on Garcia, along with Deal, Birdsong, Loser, The Wheel, To Lay Me Down.

According to Annotated Dead it was first played by GD 7/31/71. Garcia album came out January 72 and that album was produced by Billy K, Ramrod, Betty Cantor and Bob Mathews. In fact Garcia played all instruments but drums. So it seems like Jerry brought Sugaree to Dead as opposed to JGB borrowing it from GD, as would be the case with Stella.
