Meaning: Bluegrass; Jazz; Folk: Cowboy Songs; Rock; Am I correct here. There must be more catagories than these and some that can be left out. Don't think there is a Celtic influenced Dead song.
That "poem" or whatever it is supposed to be is nothing but racist filth, and I don't appreciate it at a Grateful Dead website. The only thing it lacked was a watermelon and a bucket of fried chicken. Yuck-o! "Spreadable soul"? "Slinky with collard green grease"? I need to go wash my hands.
slinky with collard green grease; soaked backbeat. a slide to Gospel shimmer not far away. righteous statement behind the groove.
spreadable soul that melts in the slow zone; peppery snap in the faster call-and-response.
a curious slither at any tempo and all the more very welcome.
i love this song. always brings a smile.
I have three categories for Dead tunes:
1) Ones that I love, can listen to any time, any day
2) Ones that I can take or leave. I don't skip over them, but I don't seek them out either.
3) Ones that I could never hear again for the rest of my life and not miss.
TLEO started in Category 3 and over the decades has managed to percolate through Category 2 into the lower reaches of Category 1. So my category: a grower...
Ive been wanting to start a "categorize that GD tune thread. Each day or hour post a GD tune, and different people will give their opinion on wat genre it belongs to, who the band might have been listening to at the time they wrote it, etc. Even covers count. First song- They Love each Other. My opinion is that the song is soul, r&b influenced. At least the earlier faster versions. What about the slower versions? Lets keep this going folks.
