Oh ok so Liberty is written by them. I coulda swore that was a cover but I was wrong.
Actually, Liberty is all Robert Hunter, as I explained in a previous post. Lyrics AND music... a la Must Have Been The Roses. I guess that means its still a GD song, but Garcia didn't co-write it.

Well I would say my bad, but it is my understanding that Hunter had written the song (lyrics and music) and then Garcia re-wrote, if you will, the music before he started reforming it with the Dead...

That is the case. See the note in Box of Rain, 2nd Ed, in the appendix on new GD songs.
