Yeah I don't get too stoked thinking about Furthur playing the real deep Jerry songs because of memories of past moments too. But I never heard him do "to lay me down" and I think it's a great moody tune so that would be great for me at least.
Songs like So Many Roads and Stella I _did_ get to hear Jerry to incredible renditions of and anything JK and Furthur does to me just rings hollow.
Really want to hear Bob bust out some of his older arrangements he hasnt done with Furthur... like Victim and Esau.. and a really good Sailor->Saint. I wished for Black Throated Wind for last year and got it on 12/30. Very stoked. My friend who wasn't really a deadhead, not so much.
I can understand why they haven't done Victim, the lead guitar part is tricky... didn't Jerry used to have trouble with it?
And Bobby said something at Tri about needing to re-work the lyrics to Esau.. any idea why?
