Re: Favorite song to hear Jerry sing?

Another aspect of Jerry's work that I really like are his many sea-going references, such as Jack-a-Row, The Handsome Cabin Boy and Off to the Sea Once More, which refers to crimping, which is sailors being tricked or forced into going to sea. Apparently San Francisco had an extreme crimping problem during most of it's early history, right up until about 1908, with corruption and collusion being widespread, with the unsavory denizens of the Barbary Coast doing the dirty work, and the authorities looking the other way. The book I read about crimping in SF was a real shocker and an eye-opener about how rough SF really was in the old days. Trust Jerry to tap into that and give voice to those long gone sailors.

Inspired by last nights post of 9/5/89, JGB, at Hartford, I'd say Mission in the rain, is one of my favorites that Jerry sang.
