Garcia: Favorite JGB Songs

Today marks Day 5 at the Garcia-Thon. Three days ago, we looked at my top 10 favorite Grateful Dead Jerry songs, two days ago, we explored one of Jerry's side-projects, the Jerry Garcia Band (JGB). Today, I wanted to share two favorite lists. Since JGB was primarily a cover band, the first list is my favorite JGB covers. But Jerry also had a few originals, some he only played with JGB, and some he played with both JGB and The Dead. So here they are:

Top 10 Favorite Jerry Garcia Band (Cover) Songs
Dear Prudence
Don’t Let Go
Forever Young
How Sweet It Is
I Shall Be Released
My Sisters And Brothers
Simple Twist Of Fate
Stop That Train
Waiting For a Miracle

Top 5 Favorite Jerry Garcia Band (Original) Songs
Cats Down Under The Stars
Mission In The Rain
Run For The Roses

Feel free to share your favorites.

"I Second That Emotion" is one of my all-time favorite covers. Played by the Dead in the early seventies, stellar guitar work by Jerry. And he does the vocals.

Agreed. The early 70's GD versions, and JGBs versions were both equally good. The 4/29/71 show (closing of Fillmore East) is one of my favorites.
