Sugaree — Cubensis

This Rendition of Sugaree is Worth a SERIOUS LISTEN

I just stumbled across this band … they’re from Southern California, and were formed 25 years ago.
The lead guitarist, Rick I think, met Jerry on an airplane flight. They got to talking, and in passing Rick said that he and his band play a lot of Grateful Dead songs.
To which Garcia replied, with sudden amazement in his voice, “Wow! So do we!”

Grateful Dead: Capitol Theater

Passaic New Jersey, 11-24-78

One of the very best late 70s shows out there:

Jerry’s playing ‘Wolf’; Bob’s got his ‘vine of life’ Ibanez, and he’s on tempo; Phil’s got all of NASA’s knobs on board his bass; Keith is wonderful on pie-anny; and Donna’s pretty much on key.
Who could ask for anything more?

This is the Grateful Dead “Raw”: the music really does play this band!
