Anyone who knows anything about the Lil’ Dogg knows that I’m a (tie) dyed in the wool Dead Head from waaaay back with access to a legendary Tape Collection of CAPITAL J Jamzzzz.
Today would have been St. Jerry Garcia’s 76th Birthday. So in honor of Hi-Top’s Patron Saint this pup presents to the Hi-Top Faithful my Top 5 Ultimate Jerry Jams:
A lot of Heads dismiss the mid 80s Dead but this Jam from the Dead’s backyard of Berkeley is a real keeper. The transition from Scarlet to Touch is just sublime.
This late 70s Franklin’s Tower really rips. Jerry’s lines coming straight from the guitar gods.
Jerry looks like hell but plays like heaven. Is it possible the best Althea is from 1989? Yes. Yes I think it is.
Barton Hall???? Yes. Barton Hall. Always Barton Hall.
“I will get by. I will get by.”
