Postby gratephulphish123 » Tue Jul 31, 2007 2:13 pm

I'm watchin truckin up to buffalo right now and theres a really girly voice singing, definately not jer so it's either bobby or brent, i doubt brent but could bobby really sing THAT high, in alot of recordings in the 80's and 90's i hear a female voice :-?

Do you have Reckoning? if so listen to Deep Elem Blues. Listen to the chorus and youll hear a VERY high pitched voice. thats good old bobby.

Bobby does that all the time, often in the last few lines of a song when he's all pumped, i used to think it was strange but its just Bobby all energized. hard to swallow at first yes but its Bobby and hes wailin'!

i think Bobbys songwriting made for some great outro's, he always gets to shout over and over the last lines, i think its freakin awsome!

Brent is the high voice on reckoning, he did some higher vocals 79- i dunno early 80's listen close and youll be able to follow Brents maturity in his playing and singing over just a short 5 year period.

there are some Buckets from the early 80's where Bobby just looses his mind and goes crazy with the falsetto voice
I only smoke it when I am awake... I promise

Those high vocals you hear behind Jerry in the chorus are definitely Bobby.

Brent did a lot of the high harmonies - that was one of the big attraction that the dead had towards him - they needed someone that could hit those high harmonies that Donna used to get. I think that Berent had a great voice to those high parts.

I like the opener on downhill from here where bobby treats the alpine valley crowd with some high register spirit on the very first song of the night. "all night long" That is when you know bobby means it.

Dont get me wrong here. I know Brent does high harmonies. Ive heard enough 80's to tell this. But that recording isnt Brent. Bobbys voice is obvious there. At least to me it is. Maybe give it another listen and youll see.
