"If I had the world to give? Seriously? There's a reason they got rid of Donna."

what exacly is that Donna comment suposed to mean? ----- you do know Jerry sang that song, right?

I understand how you don't like a lot of the songs, but there are a lot of people who do like them and would like to hear them. It's all about what your preferences are..... I just thought you were off telling someone "if thats your list then your musical taste needs improvement" because really its all opinion and I'm sure theres many people (myself included) that would like any song on his list.

If I had a dollar for everytime someone bitched about Jerry playin Day Job I would be a millionaire.

Can you imagine if they brought Day Job back in '94 or '95? I'll bet people would have loved hearing it again. The only reason people bitched is because it was played so much. Day Job was the I Fought The Law of the '80s.

Fuck that shit... he is right.. the "If I had to me" is YAWN... I just listened to 8-30-78 what a trainwreck. There's a reason they shelved it. My old fried hippie brain was thinkin of Sunrise. & FYI for all... I love 95% of all GD songs.. its just that list was like a worst of to me ( not counting vince songs) ymmv...

& guess what... I'm not salavating over a Victim or the Crime either. Or a Childhoods End. Or a shoe fits.

One last thought.. High Time is one of my all time faves. True story... I had to go to the lobby and get a beer when they started playin it at the Tower in March. TO "me" like Stella Blue it brings up a lot of emotion...and really makes me miss Jerry. Richmond 11-1-85 burned this into my brain.

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?

I see why people don't like hearing certain Jerry songs and I never said nor do I think anything Furthur does is similar/comparable to the way Jerry did it, I just don't think songs should not be played just because they're not the same, I don't think they're trying to sound the same either.
